CHRIS GILLESPIE

Chris qualified as a physiotherapist from Bournemouth University and moved to The Carter & George Practice from Tottenham Hotspur, where he worked with professional and age group players. Chris began his career working within the NHS as a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist.
Chris has also worked with AFC Bournemouth, England Touch Rugby and has provided his services to British University and College Sports events.

During his time at Tottenham, he successfully gained his Bronze Certification (ACPSEM) and is certified as an EXOS Performance Specialist; he strives to broaden his expertise and is committed to further professional development.

Chris is particularly interested in injury causation and the factors that lead to injury recurrence and concurrence. This was of particular importance working with the Tottenham players and getting them back to match-fitness promptly.

Chris has a specialist interest in lower limb injuries as well as complex shoulder conditions from trauma to long-standing pain.

Sport has formed the backdrop to Chris’ professional and personal life: he was an academy football player; represented his County in rugby and basketball. More recently, Chris completed his first half Ironman triathlon.

An adept communicator, Chris has a keen appreciation of his client’s needs and wishes when formulating action plans. He utilises a range of techniques – exercise prescription, shockwave therapy, IMS needling, taping, massage, acupuncture – to help clients reach their ambitions; no matter the size.
