Meet The Team

Chris Wood - Clinical Director
Clinical Director

My inspiration to become a Sports Therapist came from personal experiences with having a long term injury.

After an operation to reconstruct the ACL and remove torn cartilage, I began a long 6-9 months of rehabilitation and this experience inspired my interest in the techniques and methods used during the rehabilitation and has motivated me to help others through the treatment process.
