Tom is a creative and intuitive Physical Therapist who can offer successful integrated treatments utilising manual therapy and exercise therapy and treats all acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries, and pain, from the spine (neck & back) to peripheral joints, including hips, knees, ankles and feet, and shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands. He can treat muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, joint, and bone problems, and painful conditions that are caused by weakness, stiffness, imbalances, fatigue, tension, and other functional disorders.

He enjoys working with children, adults and the elderly from his time working in NHS outpatients, private practice and sports teams. He is based in his clinic, and also gives Home Visits (Boitsfort only). Treatment focused rehabilitation for pre and post orthopaedic surgery is offered for operations such as ACL reconstruction, Achilles and patella tendon repair, joint repair including partial and total joint replacements of the upper and lower limb. Tom also utilises video analysis as part of his functional assessment, and finds it particularly useful to analyse and give feedback for walking and running styles in order to improve any biomechanical issues that he may find. People that run, find this particularly useful. He is currently training for a postgraduate qualification in musculoskeletal ultrasound for diagnostic purposes, which he uses in his practice.
