Nick graduated in Physiotherapy from Brighton University in 1999 and went on to work in the NHS for 6 years, specialising in orthopaedics and musculo-skeletal out-patients, before moving full-time into the private sector in 2006.
Since 2006 Nick has worked at a leading LTA-affiliated High Performance Tennis Academy, assessing, treating and managing the musculo-skeletal injuries of the scholarship and pro-academy players in conjunction with the strength and conditioning, coaching and sports psychology teams.
Nick has also been heavily involved with set-up and provision of the twice yearly injury prevention player screening programme. The high volume of tennis players screened over ten years gives Nick an excellent knowledge and insight into the anatomy, mechanics and management of tennis players and their injuries.
Nick has great experience in junior and senior players and has a particular interest in adolescent sports injuries through his involvement with the Academy. Nick takes great pride in his work and ensures that each person is treated as an individual, using the resources of sports medicine doctors, radiologists and orthopaedic consultants where appropriate.
The complexity and demands of tennis as a sport requires Nick to very thoroughly assess his patients, as the source of a problem may not always be in the area of pain. Nick feels that this approach has been the key to him being able to deal with players that may have been seen by multiple therapists and when dealing with often complex issues.
Nick has undertaken extensive post-graduate education to further his knowledge and is currently planning to complete his Masters degree in Sports Injury Management at Brighton University.
