Hi, I’m Nick and I graduated from the University of East Anglia in 2013. I moved straight into private practice, working in Norwich for a time before relocating to London to complete a MSc in Exercise & Sports Medicine in 2016. Through the course I worked with leading Sports medicine consultants, enjoying strengthening my knowledge in sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. I joined the Vanbrugh Team in 2017.

At school I was always interested in the sciences, problem solving and trying to understand how things worked; be it machinery or the human body. During my A Levels, it was suggested to me that by persuing a career in Physiotherapy, I could combine these interests with my love of sport. With my curiosity peaked, I lept at the chance to enroll on a week long ‘Exploring Physiotherapy’ course for sixth form students at the University of Nottingham; and I’ve never looked back.

Being a conscientious and analytical thinker means that I’m methodical in my approach to Physiotherapy. Using the ConnectTherapy™ approach, I’m committed to investigating and treating my patient’s individual problems as thoroughly as possible.

I always use a hands-on approach to treatment including deep tissue release, joint mobilisation and taping, as well as acupuncture & dry needling. I tailor my treatment and exercise programs to ensure my patients achieve their treatment goals, often surpassing even what they thought was possible.

When I’m not at work, you’ll find me playing hockey for Blackheath Hockey Club, cycling or finding any excuse to go skiing.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
At the age of 7, I accidentally won an art competition with one of my dad’s paintings.
