Introducing goPhysio’s Newest Team Member

Posted on 13th July 2018 by

Chris Tiley Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

goPhysio are delighted to welcome the 12th member of the team, our 5th Physiotherapist, Chris Tiley MCSP.

Chris has joined the Physo and Pilates team on a full time basis, working Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and every other Saturday. Here’s a little introduction to Chris.

“After graduating from Coventry University in 2008, I started practicing physiotherapy in Canada. For 18 months I worked initially in the ski resort of Whistler Blackcomb and then in Vancouver before heading back to the UK.  Since my return I have worked in the Berkshire area within private hospitals and private practices and then more recently in a private practice in Bournemouth.

Throughout my career I have had a keen interest in sport and pursued this within physiotherapy and personally.  I have worked with Reading FC academy for 6 seasons which has given me invaluable experience within a large sporting organisation.  This lead to an amazing experience volunteering at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow where I spent the majority of my time working within Rugby 7’s as well as covering some of the table tennis events.

I then spent 2 seasons as one of the physiotherapists for British Parasnowsport, working and travelling with elite skiers and snowboarders with varying disabilities.  This has involved travelling abroad for the training camps and competitions. One of the highlights was being part of the Winter X-Games in Aspen, Colorado with one of our athletes who competed in the adaptive boarder cross race.

My experiences through my various roles have given me invaluable assessment and treatment skills throughout many areas of physiotherapy including: sports injuries, back/neck pain, chronic pain and post operative physiotherapy to name a few. I have also completed level 1 and 2 APPI Pilates matwork training.

Outside of work I enjoy participating in several sports and activities.  I regularly run and have completed the London Marathon twice and multiple half marathons.  I like to cycle and have taken part in several Sportive’s including the Prudential Ride 100.  I enjoy playing racquet sports, indoor climbing and have recently taken up golf.

For further information about myself or the treatments on offer at the clinic please contact me on: chris@gophysiotherapy.co.uk or call the clinic on 023 8025 3317.”
