Physiotherapist and Director
In addition to his role at Physio Remedies, Paul is technical lead physiotherapist at the English Institute of Sport (EIS). His work there is based on practitioner development in Paralympic Sport, where he works alongside Paralympic Sport practitioners in rowing, wheelchair basketball, paratriathlon and boccia, to name a few. He was also the lead physiotherapist for GB ParaSwimming (covering the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Games), as well as clinical lead physiotherapist for ParalympicsGB at Rio in 2016.
As an “exceptionally mediocre sportsman” (his words), Paul gets his daily sports fix by concentrating on the capabilities of others – especially those who participate in football, rugby union, cricket, athletics, triathlon and swimming.
Paul has a degree in Physiotherapy from Brunel University, and an MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from UCL.
Throughout my six-year career at the top of elite-level sport, I have worked with Paul as my primary physiotherapist. Paul and his team have assisted me through rehab from major injury twice, and he was my physio throughout the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games where I won Gold and two Bronze medals over three disciplines in swimming. Paul's knowledge of sport, ability, the body and rehab is unparalleled. I would recommend him to any athlete or person at any level if they want to get the best advice and results.

Following my operation for a dislocated shoulder, Paul took the time to understand my goals, guiding me through the process to get my shoulder back to normal and even stronger than it was previously. To the point, accurate and trustworthy.
