Basil is a fully qualified physiotherapist, and an independent researcher. His enthusiasm, firm work-ethic and previous experience as a teaching assistant in the subject of Manual Therapy at the University of Central Greece, landed him a visiting lecturer’s position at the University of Birmingham where he now teaches part-time at the undergraduate programme.
Basil started his clinical career as a sports physiotherapist at a high-end sports physiotherapy clinic in Thessaloniki, Greece, where he worked with a range of elite athletes (volleyball, handball, football, runners).
Being involved with martial arts for years, he was later offered the position of the lead sports physiotherapist at a martial arts club (kick-boxing & judo) where he further developed his therapeutic skills. Following a successful career there, Basil had to leave his post to serve the Greek Army as a military physiotherapist under the Medical Corps. During his rotations at the 424 General Military Hospital of Thessaloniki, he gained valuable experience in all fields of physiotherapy (post-operative, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and geriatric physiotherapy).
Basil came to the U.K. to further develop his clinical skills by undertaking a Master’s degree in Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham.
