George is a very experienced clinical physiotherapist who has been working with patients since 2002 when he obtained his BSc in Physiotherapy. He is a highly trained physiotherapist specialising in musculoskeletal/sports, geriatric physiotherapy, performing arts and vestibular rehabilitation.
For 10 continuous years George was the lead sports physiotherapist for the Greek Swimming Federation (KOE) and the Greek Olympic team (swimming department) where he oversaw the prevention and rehabilitation of sports injuries in elite swimmers. During his service, Greece enjoyed significant distinctions including an Olympic gold medal in diving (Athens 2004).
In 2014 George completed his MSc in Exercise and Quality of Life which further enhanced his skills in exercise prescription and rehabilitation of athletes and general population groups of all ages. His research was focused on the early identification of elite performance capability in young swimmers through screening of the index/middle finger length ratio.
Following a successful career in Greece, George decided to move to the U.K. to start a Post-Graduate Diploma in Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham. He has a special interest in Geriatrics particularly the 80+ group and possesses substantial experience with the pre- and post-operative management of orthopaedic procedures like joint replacements.
George is registered with the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) as a physiotherapist with an interest in the rehabilitation of performers particularly musicians and dancers.
Finally, George is our leading specialist for vestibular rehabilitation and he is a full member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Interested in Vestibular Rehabilitation (ACPIVR).
George is currently our lead therapist and also manages our clinic’s domiciliary physiotherapy service offering home visits to patients who cannot come to our clinic.
