Oli has been working at CSPC since 2010 combining his knowledge from both sports science and physiotherapy to ensure patients are treated, educated and returned to functional activity as quickly as possible.
Outside of his hours at CSPC Oli is employed by the EIS (English Institute of Sport) providing physiotherapy services for British Triathlon. His role within the federation includes regular assessment and rehabilitation for acute and chronic injuries sustained by Olympic programme athletes. His responsibilities also include providing physiotherapy and medical services for BTF athletes whilst at international races and national programme training camps.
His previous roles have included working in other elite sport settings such as Leeds Carnegie RFU as well as the Leeds based High Performance badminton squad. In the past Oli has also provided domestic and international event/competition physiotherapy for British Athletics (UKA) and England Athletics.
Oli has a strong clinical interest in lower limb overuse injuries. A high percentage of his clinical caseload is assessment and management of endurance related injury such as lower limb tendon (e.g achilles and hamstring tendinopathies) and bone stress injury. He ensures his rehab is specific to each presentation and helps patients optimise mechanics to reduce risk of recurrence. Oli really enjoys working closely with athletes and patients to help identify causative factors towards their injury, using his skills in manual therapy and rehabilitation to speed up recovery.
“Working within elite sport has taught me how to return athletes to form with the added incentive of playing a significant role in their performance. Whether in a sporting context or not, watching a patient reach their personal goals and knowing that you had a significant part to play is hugely rewarding.”
In his spare time Oli enjoys participating in a variety of sports including recreational triathlon, running, road cycling, golf and tennis.
