Meet the newest members of the Apple Physio Team
We are pleased to introduce you to Mike Davis and Kevin Young who have joined The Apple Physio Team:
Mike Davis has been qualified for over 18 years and has a wealth of experience in treating sports injuries and spinal (neck and back) pain. He has spent the majority of his time in private practice in London working with some of the top orthopaedic and spinal consultants in the UK.
He is a keen runner and as a consequence has a particular interest in running injuries and running based rehabilitation. His other strong interest is in shoulder pain and shoulder rehabilitation. He uses a wide variety of treatment skills ranging from Acupuncture to joint manipulation plus massage and exercise therapy to alleviate and resolve symptoms such as pain and stiffness .
Mike believes strongly that it is essential not just to treat and resolve the patient’s symptoms-e.g pain, stiffness, swelling but also to analyse and correct their faulty posture and movement patterns. His experience in treating spinal conditions allied with his knowledge of the current evidence based research on the most effective exercises for spinal pain will give patients the best possible opportunity to gain strong healthy pain free spines.
For anyone with running injuries Mike can undertake a detailed biomechanical analysis of your running technique which often is one the causative factors leading to injury. With expert analysis Mike can help fine tune and improve your running pattern to make you a more efficient runner and ultimately less vulnerable to re-injury.
For those looking to lose weight who are unsure of how or where to start Mike can also offer advice based on the current scientific research on nutrition and he can dispel lots of common myths associated with weight loss and provide the most effective strategies for long term gradual weight loss and improved general health and conditioning.
He has worked in sports for 25 years. He has worked closely with many local rugby teams, American Football players and professional boxers.
He started to use video & gait analysis, using treadmills and on-track/field facilities to diagnose and rectify lower limb and foot biomechanical problems.
Kevin has also achieved a BSc (Hons) in Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture and Diploma in Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage) as well as a MSC in lower limb musculo-skeletal studies specializing in lower limb injuries, biomechanics and gait analysis.
He also is a lecturer in Anatomy, Structural diagnosis and Tui Na massage at College of Integrated Chinese Medicine Reading as well as being a visiting lecturer in Acupuncture, biomechanics and running & gait analysis at Cardiff Met University (Master’s program) and at Glyndwr University (Bachelor of Science) in Wrexham
