It's a great place and I can recommend Stuart! Before I met him in early August I suffered 6.months from shoulder injury (I saw other specialist but didn't help) and at the same time I developed a knee injury from running. He explained everything and told me what to do. Right now my shoulder is really well and I'm more aware of my body and posture. I'm still recovering from knee injury but all exercises given by Stuart really help and I feel like every week I can run a bit more which is the goal.
I had a great experience with Physio4Life. All the staff are friendly and helpful. I went to see Senior Physiotherapist Stuart after badly spraining my ankle and needing rehab to get back into running and playing sport. Stuart was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He explained everything in each session thoroughly so I had a good understanding of why I was being given each exercise etc. and what they would help to achieve. He encouraged me to achieve as much as possible in the shortest amount of time that was safe, and got me back to playing hockey as soon as possible. I would definitely go back to Physio4Life and would highly recommend Stuart.
I've been working with Stuart for almost a year now, and I've made consistent progress towards some pretty large goals I set during my initial consultation. Not only is he very knowledgeable about his work, he's incredibly personable and sessions are always productive. I really can't speak highly enough of the treatment I've received.
Stuart graduated from La Trobe University, in Melbourne, Australia, with a Masters in Physiotherapy in 2013.
Since graduation, Stuart has worked in various settings that include private practice, sports clubs and the NHS. During his time working in Australia, he had the opportunity to work alongside highly trained practitioners at Australia’s elite football clubs. This extended to his position as lead physiotherapist for a semi-professional Australian football club.
During his time working in Australia, Stuart had predominantly treated athletes within Australian football, cricket, netball, hockey and runners. Beyond treating athletes, his private practice experience also extended to treating patients without athletic backgrounds or pursuits, across all stages of life, to help rid them of their pain day to day.
As a physiotherapist, Stuart is able to treat all types of musculoskeletal injuries. However, his main interests focus on diagnosis and rehab surrounding the hip/groin and shoulder areas. This particular interest in hip injuries stems from his own personal experience, having hip arthroscopic surgery in 2009.
He has completed a significant amount of postgraduate courses regarding hip and groin pain, shoulder pain, tendinopathy of the lower limb, as well as strength/conditioning and mastering loading in high-level athletes.
Alongside this continued development of his skills, Stuart consistently liaises with many of London’s leading consultants, especially those involving the hip and shoulder, in order to stay on the cutting edge and provide the best advice and referral network for his patients.
On a personal level, Stuart is frequently involved in the field of strength and conditioning. This originates from his own involvement training in the sport of power lifting for a number of years back in Australia, last competing in 2016 prior to relocating to the UK. Outside of work, he continues to keep himself busy with continued training in the gym along with casually playing games of Australian rules football over here in London when the opportunity arises.
