Why did you choose this Profession?
I’ve always had a keen interesting in sports from a young age and have had my fair share of injuries to go with this from doing gymnastics, horse riding, trampolining to running swimming etc but what really got me in this profess is that I was involved in a car over 3 years which resulted in my L4 / L5 haemorrhaging disc. I spent much time researching into treatment and how to rehab myself and found a good physio to help me get back living life to the full again. So, I really got into this profess to help others to recover from injuries as well as helping them to prevent injuries by self care.
