About Nick Dodson
Nick qualified as a Physiotherapist from Keele University in 2007 and began his career working for a private outpatient clinic in the West Yorkshire area.
Pursuing his interest in sports and musculoskeletal injuries, Nick gained vital experience of working with an elite athlete after providing personal physiotherapy to former World number 1 squash player James Willstrop throughout the 2008 British Open.
Later that year, Nick was appointed as the Academy Physio at professional football club Hull City AFC, where he was responsible for the health and fitness of over 150 football players aged 9-18 years old.
After spending two great years at Hull, Nick left the sports world behind in order to further develop his manual therapy skills by treating a wider variety of patients in the private sector, leading to the birth of The Physio Health Clinic in 2010.
Since finishing University, Nick has continued his development by completing post graduate training in areas such as Sports Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, advanced pitchside first aid, sports taping, treatment of the cervical spine and upper limb, and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. In order to keep all treatment current with the latest evidence based techniques, he continues to pursue his interest in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
“My philosophy of physiotherapy has always been to have a patient centred approach to treatment. No two people are the same and I always take this into consideration when administering treatment and devising rehabilitation programs. I am a firm believer of a ‘hands on’ approach, so if you’ve grown disillusioned with the quality of care you have received elsewhere, I can guarantee that at The Physio Health Clinic we aim for you to feel the benefits from the very first session”
