Martin Founder and Senior Specialist Musculoskeletal Physio

[javascript protected email address]

Martin qualified in 1996 from the University of Hertfordshire and is the founder and Senior Specialist Musculoskeletal Physio at West Hampstead Physiotherapy, which has been established since 2007. Previous to this, he worked as clinical lead within Brent were he taught multiple workshops to GP’s in Brent on assessment and first line care or musculoskeletal injury. He also assessed and redesigned musculoskeletal services across the borough. Alongside this, he gained numerous post-graduate qualifications in spinal manipulation, advanced shoulder and spinal assessment and rehabilitation, soft tissue release techniques, adverse neural dynamics, functional core stability as well as obtaining a post-graduate certificate in Sports injury and exercise management from Leeds Metropolitan University. He has also previously taught at Brunel University and presented at the Indian Association National Annual Conference on spinal stability rehabilitation. As part of a drive to reach people who may not be able to access services easily on the NHS he also obtained a PgCert in Autism and education to understand children and adults on the autistic spectrum and the specific issues to consider in formulating a treatment plan with them.

Through his years of working as a clinician, he has worked with hundreds of patients and athletes with neck and back pain, sciatica, sports-related injuries, patients following ACL reconstruction, shoulder surgery and many other conditions. His attitude is that physiotherapy is a ‘practice’ it is something that you continually develop, keep-up-to-date with and modify to the patient sat in front of you. Success is always a joint effort between the therapist and the patient. Outside of work, Martin is a keen distance swimmer, triathlete, trains in mixed martial arts, reads and likes to spend time with his family.

Inge

Inge Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Inge trained as a Chartered Physiotherapist in Bristol 20 years ago, with previous BSc Hon Physiology/ Pharmacology  at King’s London University  and  career in corporate health promotion ( setting up International services for companies such as Freshfields law firm, European Commission Brussels) Inge has vast experience.

Her assessment is thorough in order to identify the origin of your pain. She will explain it to you in a way you understand, deliver effective treatment (mobilisation, sports taping, ultrasound to accelerate tissue healing, trained in acupuncture but does not use needles here only acupressure). She designs short, effective bespoke exercise programmes and corrects maladaptive movement that may predispose you to injury in the future. Her approach if something is injured is not to put a ceiling on performance but to use biomechanical understanding to show you how the non-injured body/mind can support the part that needs to heal whilst maintaining optimal performance and minimal pain.

Having worked in London teaching hospitals such as the Royal Free (responsible for complex condition management services working alongside neck/back/hip/knee specialist clinics) as well as her previous role as  Clinical lead in a Westminster private physiotherapy practice working closely with Harley Street consultants, she is in a good position to help steer you through the labyrinth of health care and coordinate with other professionals. With over 30% of GP appointments reported as “medically unexplained, she has set up innovative graded therapy services in teams with immunologists and rheumatologists. These services have been involved in global research trials with a track record of effective treatment for chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia/burnout.

Her clients cover the whole spectrum – sedentary or active lifestyles, sportsmen (amateur to international level), old, young (children included), weary, demotivated or ready to go, everyone welcome. Sessions vary; sometimes people come once, others until their goals are met and others find they want to come more, as things they thought they’d have to live with start getting fixed – you decide!
