Joe graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University and since then has gained extensive clinical experience within both the NHS and the private sectors of Physiotherapy. In recent years Joe has combined his conventional Physiotherapeutic techniques with manipulations and expanded his approach to musculoskeletal health using naturopathic and nutritional approaches. This knowledge was gained when he worked along side naturopath Jan de Vries.
In addition to his physiotherapy and manipulative skills Joe has undergone additional post graduate training in Western Medical Acupuncture with the British Medical Acupuncture Society
Joe has also gained invaluable experience in sports injuries with Motherwell football club treating a wide variety of sports injuries in elite athletes as a current active member of the professional youth academy.
All of this combined allows Joe to utilise a wide variety of treatments that will provide each person with a tailored, patient centred approach for both children and adults.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury and pain through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice and a variety of treatments such as electrotherapy, ultrasound and acupuncture.
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain, prevent disease and create a suitable rehabilitation programme tailored to each person for their specific needs.
Physiotherapy helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery,
enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent
for as long as possible.
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well-being, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment, a completely bespoke treatment and rehabilitation package necessary for the optimal care of each person.
