Based at our St John’s Wood clinic, Chris is Central Health’s Clinical Lead.
I help patients of all ages with persistent non-specific mechanical spinal pain who have become confused, concerned, and disenchanted by failure to respond to conventional approaches to managing their problems. I do this by listening to them about the problem, what it means to them and their life and how it makes them feel. I help them understand their problem using simple explanations, metaphors and anecdotes to allow them to understand sometimes complex and multi-factorial issues involved with their problem. And then by demonstrating how they can use simple practical, functional exercises to get control over their pain and improve their confidence and function.
Chris sees a wide range of musculoskeletal problems but has a special interest in spinal problems, especially persistent Low Back Pain.
He has links with consultant orthopaedic spinal surgeons throughout North West London.
