Secret fan of Guinea Pigs
Rob is an avid tomato grower AND a brilliant physiotherapist. Double whammy! His years of experience and calm approach will soothe your worries and leave you feeling in control of your pain or injury. Feel free to ask Rob about his menagerie of animals…but don’t mention a goat.
Rob is a highly experienced physiotherapist. He qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from the University of East London in 2006 after completing a Sports Science degree. Rob spent his first 6 years as a physiotherapist working for the NHS where he spent much of his time working between musculoskeletal outpatients, orthopaedics and a specialist hand therapy team (which is why we’re able to offer specialist hand therapy at GSP).
Rob’s a pro when it comes to workplace assessments. Between 2012 and 2020 Rob specialised in Occupational Health Physiotherapy. Rob says, ‘the important thing with Occupational Health is early intervention to prevent injury. We carry out expert assessment, treatment and support that is specific to the employee and the tasks they carry out’. Rob is now a committee member for The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE) – pssst, they’re the professional network of physiotherapists who specialise in work and health. Pretty cool.
As well as being an expert with hands and workplaces, Rob has worked in different sports throughout his career including football, rugby, basketball and baseball. I think they call that a home run (mic drop).
Away from work, Rob enjoys lifting heavy things in the gym (weights usually, not animals or anything weird) and yoga. He has a deep displeasure for running but tries really hard to like it. To relax, Rob enjoys family holidays with Vicki and their two children, especially skiing.
Rob’s guilty pleasure is escaping to his greenhouse where he grows tomatoes and enjoys a little ‘me’ time. He also quite likes his children’s pet chickens and guinea pigs, but won’t admit it. Vicki wants a goat. It’s best not to mention it.
