Cris has worked in the health service as an advanced level practitioner, as well as in private healthcare; approximately half of his career has been spent in elite and professional sport. Over this time, Cris has come to understand that the principles underlying sports physiotherapy, and performance generally, can be applied to anyone, whatever their current level of activity.
When Cris sees you as a new patient, he will analyse your complete history, especially focusing on your physical activities, past and present, no matter what they may be. Next, he will look at how you perform basic movements, moving up in complexity, depending on the context and objectives that you wish to achieve. These might be completing your first park run, completing your first Ironman triathlon, having a safe first skiing trip, or managing the stairs without pain.
Once Cris has identified any impairments in strength, control, or flexibility, he will design a specific rehabilitation programme to address these, so that you can achieve your personal goals.
