Richard has proactively engaged in further studies of movement pattern training, functional neurology, spinal control, posture, headache and migraine, vertigo and balance disorders, ergonomics and running technique.
Movement is undoubtedly the most important factor in successful prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injury, both integrated movement of the body and cultivating an active life. First and foremost I adopt an approach of ‘prevention over cure’ though this is built on a solid foundation of injury rehabilitation. Highlighting the most significant factors contributing to an injury’s development is paramount to long term gains, which interestingly is rarely the site of the actual pain. I pride myself on a cutting edge approach to treatment involving correction of global movement patterns, underlying weaknesses and deficiencies in activation, aberrant length tension relationships and brain based dysfunction.
In his spare time Richard enjoys getting outdoors and keeping active with yoga, rock climbing, gym, running and cycling. He believes in taking a pro-active approach to health and enjoys helping people do the same.
