Welcome

Almost eighteen years ago Paul decided to embark on a new career in Physiotherapy having become disillusioned with his chosen profession of hairdressing.

His choice of Physiotherapy was an easy one to make as he volunteered at numerous local sports clubs, assisting in the treatment and management of injury. He found this work so fulfilling that he decided to obtain further qualifications to assist in his new venture.

Over a four year period he obtained the Northern Institutes Remedial Massage diploma which lead to the Post graduate sports therapy diploma and an electrotherapy qualification.

Using these newly acquired qualifications Paul was successful in his application for the post of West Hull Physiotherapist where he spent five years. His association there also lead to positions with Humberside, Yorkshire and Great Britain Under 18's squads.

Such was Paul's reputation at this point he was approached by the prestigious Hull Kingston Rovers team to oversee the medical needs of their Academy and scholarship players.

Currently Paul maintains his links in all types of local sport and members of the general public of all ages and he is also the physiotherapist for the East Riding County FA representative squads.

Paul has recently seen an influx of dancers and gymnasts and problems that they incur during their activities. Paul has the use of fitness centres and gyms for rehabilitation and exercise depending on the severity of people’s problems.

Due to his caring and professional approach Paul has now become one of the most sought after therapists in the area. Such is the demand he has now opened a second practice at the Hull and East Riding squash club on Chanterlands Avenue, Hull.
