Greg’s not only one of our most experienced physios, but also one of the owners and co-founders of our clinic. He’s obviously been with the organisation since it started in 2011 and alongside helping lots of our clients back to fitness, he’s responsible for overseeing the business management and direction as well.
Now having played an important role in helping the clinic to grow and develop over the past nine years, he says he loves working here because of the great fun environment!
We managed to grab five minutes with Greg to find out a little more about him…
Greg told us his passion for physio was first triggered way back in school when he demonstrated a natural interest in anatomy and physiology. Like many of the physios at W5, Greg also had a genuine desire to help people and says,
“I get a real buzz out of helping people to lessen or get rid of their pain and achieve their own personal health and fitness goals.”
Having had the experience working alongside a number of professional athletes and celebrities, Greg is particularly proud of working at the Sydney Olympics and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
“I was also Greg James’ physio for his ‘Pedal to the Peaks’ challenge for Sport Relief, 2018.”
Greg was proud to support and advise the Radio 1 DJ throughout the ‘Gregathlon’, described as 1 man. 3 mountains. Lots of cycling. (Physio) Greg played a pivotal role in working with (DJ) Greg through extreme exhaustion and an unprecedented red weather warning.
But what about Greg outside of work? Well, practising what he preaches, Greg’s keen on his fitness. He regularly cycles and climbs an impressive four to six times a week, and also likes to attend the gym. He explains to us that he absolutely loves spending time snowboarding and being in the mountains/outdoors too.
When Greg sits still for long enough, he can be found watching Marvel movies with his two boys. He says
“Spending time and hanging out with my kids is all I want to do at the weekends.”
Although Greg has extensive overall/general physiotherapy and anatomy experience, he does have a special interest in working with sports injuries including back and neck pain and shoulder and knee problems. If you’d like Greg to help you back onto the road to recovery, why not book an appointment with him today?
