Since graduating in 2002 Alex has specialised in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy, predominantly in professional sport. He started his career at Crystal Palace FC with the academy but soon moved up to the first team. After taking a break to complete his Masters in Australia at the University of Queensland, he returned to work in a private central London physiotherapy practice for four years.
Alex then returned to sport and went back to Crystal Palace where he spent six seasons as the Head Physiotherapist. Following a short break from football, he was employed as a full time physio for GB tennis player James Ward where he spent just over a year helping him recover from a long term injury.
Alex focuses on lower limb injuries and has a keen interest in the hip and groin area having worked extensively with leading UK surgeons in this area. His other area of interest is ankle injuries - having had several basketball injuries himself!
Alex is a keen sportsman himself playing basketball and tennis competitively still whilst also regularly attending the gym.
Alex gave me a couple of great sessions ahead of a long race that I successfully completed last week. I just wanted to say thanks again for the help in getting me ready for the Dragon's Back race and to let him know that I had successfully made it.

Alex was very knowledgeable and helpful on all aspects of my problem. I had 2 sessions with him which were enormously helpful. I will try to see him every time I come to London (not that often unfortunately).
