Physiotherapists treat injury and pain by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.
Physiotherapy can assist and help people of all ages and social groups, from the non-competitive to the elite sportsman, maintaining and preventing injury or simply to alter a lifestyle to ensure better posture and health.
Here at Central Somerset Physiotherapy we also use sport massage therapy to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body's soft tissues during physical activity.
Andy graduated from Southampton University with a 1st class honours degree in Physiotherapy three years after achieving a 1st class honours degree in Sport & Exercise Science at Cheltenham & Gloucester College of Higher Education. Prior to gaining qualifications at a degree level Andy pursued a career in the fitness industry as a fitness instructor, RSA Exercise to Music instructor, ASA Swimming instructor and GP referral coordinator. It is from this background that he developed a keen interest in sport injuries which led him down the career path of physiotherapy. Andy started his physiotherapy career within Poole NHS Trust where he quickly progressed to a senior level. He later left Poole, moving back to his home county in Somerset to develop a private practice which later became Central Somerset Physiotherapy. He has completed a diploma in Orthopaedic medicine and has a wealth of experience in Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic physiotherapy. His previous role as a personal trainer coupled with representing Great Britain as a youth and junior in the sport of triathlon naturally led to him becoming a physiotherapy sport injury specialist. He has worked with several sporting teams and schools and provides regular running gait analysis and rehabilitation for various sporting competitors ranging from a recreational to elite level. He is also qualified and offers treatment for BPPV. Andy’s spare time is largely taken up by his young family and sport. He continues to participate in sport concentrating on triathlon and cycle sportive events. It is through this interest that Central Somerset Physiotherapy maintains a close link with local sporting clubs.
