'Jody was incredible. Helpful and encouraging, he got me back to full health, and made me laugh at the same time’ – Sarah McGee
Jody has worked in a variety of roles in sport and healthcare over the last 13 years, starting as a coach, transitioning into a soft tissue massage therapist and finally now working as a clinical specialist physiotherapist.
Jody was a long jumper until an Achilles tendon injury tore him away from the sand pit. Like most people in their twenties, he felt like his body was made of rubber and magic, before discovering first-hand just how delicate it truly is.
He was devastated, but found inspiration in the physiotherapists who treated him. They made him realise that – despite being an athlete – he knew very little about the human body. Through the knowledge they gave him, Jody learned how to self-manage his condition, as well as discovering a fascination with how the body worked that would lead him to become a physio himself.
Because of his experiences as a patient, Jody puts education and self-management at the heart of his treatment – which makes him a perfect fit for Physio London. He still remembers how scary it was not knowing whether he would be able to run again, so he makes sure that the people he treats are informed, reassured and empowered.
Jody’s never stopped loving sport, and in his spare time he likes nothing more than to keep active himself with a combination of athletics, golf, and weight-lifting.
Jody has a Master’s degree in Sports & Exercise Medicine, and has a particular interest in tendon pain, ligament injury, spinal pain and sciatica.
