Testimonial:
I have had ongoing issues with my knees for about 10 years now. I am a very active person, doing sports 4-5 times a week. I have had my knees looked at before, but the diagnosis was always inconclusive. I didn’t know what was wrong. It got to the point that I was not able to enjoy my sports anymore because I worried so much about it. Prince was extremely thorough with his assessment, and finally I was given a proper diagnosis for my knee problem. More importantly, Prince designed a rehab program for me, taking the time to go over the exercises with me in detail week after week to make sure that I did them correctly. Prince helped me understand what had been going on with my knee and how I didn’t have to put up with it. After 10 years of pain, in just 5 months of seeing Prince as well as being diligent with my exercise program, I am pain-free and back hiking, playing tennis and enjoying my sport again. I am just so grateful for what Prince has done for me. Thank you.

Bio:

Hi, I’m Prince. My interest in physiotherapy as a career came a bit later than some. I became interested in sport in my late teens where I developed a passion for fitness and health and sought to gain a further understanding of the science behind it. After completing my Sports Science degree at London South Bank in 2015, I realised that my passion didn’t lie in working on the “science” side of sport, but was rather more interested in injury management, along with the rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, and helping people return to their sport or activity.

I worked for a brief period as a Doctor’s Assistant within a large GP practice where I gained vital experience and worked closely within the multi-disciplinary team there. My passion to help people lead me to complete my second bachelor’s degree at King’s College London in Physiotherapy.

Here I truly flourished, and I grew to love the holistic approach physiotherapy offered. Physiotherapy is a varied profession, where you can work in many different settings, but my passion for musculoskeletal physio led me to seek the opportunity to help people in a private clinic setting.

I am so pleased to have joined the team here at Vanbrugh Physio as part of the New Graduate Advanced Mentoring program. Working alongside the experienced team here has been the best start I could have hoped for in my career. Although I’ve started my profession recently, I have a robust understanding of the physical and mental demands for sport, in particular strength and multifactorial sports such as Olympic weightlifting and Rugby.

When I’m not working, you may find me at the gym training for Olympic weightlifting or playing the odd match of rugby with my old rugby club. If I’m not training or on the pitch, I’m either travelling or enjoying the good company of friends here in London.

An interesting fact about you no one would know (until now):
Prior to my Sports Science degree, I undertook a vocational catering qualification – so I’m also technically a trained chef!
