Currently based in New Zealand, I have worked in elite sport in the UK as the lead therapist for British Canoeing. I have recently completed my PhD investigating predictors of recurrent shoulder instability. During this thesis, I developed a tool to predict recurrent shoulder instability (PRIS) after a first-time traumatic shoulder dislocation, which is available on this website. My masters thesis investigated tissue stiffness in unilateral shoulder instability. This website combines the courses that I teach to therapists (courses) my work developing shoulder braces (Flawless Motion), my clinical work at the Auckland Shoulder Clinic, and my research projects. This includes the development of the return to sport (SARTS) test that I examined with Prof Tim Uhl and colleagues while on a research fellowship at the University of Kentucky.
We are passionate about creating and disseminating research that changes clinical practice, and facilitates clinicians to provide the highest level of care to their patients. These courses are now available online, so that everyone has access to them.
I developed these shoulder braces in 2006, and they have gone from strength to strength. They provide support for athletes returning to sport, and are cool to wear as the neoprene is perforated. The braces are made in New Zealand and worn all over the world. Check out all our designs on the website.
Be the first to know about latest online and face to face courses, as well as all of my latest published research.Don’t worry we wont be spamming you, just letting you know about new things published in the area of shoulder rehabilitation.
