Now based in Auckland, New Zealand, I have worked in elite sport in the UK as the lead therapist for British Canoeing. I completed my PhD investigating predictors of recurrent shoulder instability in2019. 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 on-going research projects. This includes the development of the return to sport (SARTS) tests that I examined with Prof Tim Uhl and colleagues while on a research fellowship at the University of Kentucky. Check out the updates for free lectures that I have given over the last few years
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 began developing 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. We also now have a new lightweight summer brace made of silicon-backed lycra. Check out all our designs on the website.
