Clare Graduated with Honours from Coventry University in 2005 and since then has worked in a variety of NHS, private, competitive sporting and occupational health settings. This wide range of work areas has enabled Clare to work and build relationships with some of London’s top orthopaedic, rheumatology and pain specialists as well as treat both simple and very complex musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. She currently splits her time between Bespoke Physiotherapy and a joint lead role within the Occupational Health Physiotherapy Service at King’s College Hospital, a service that she set up in 2011.
She has postgraduate training in manual therapy, sports massage, ACL rehabilitation, taping, complex spinal management, radiology, chronic pain management, workstation assessments and ergonomics. She is also currently completing her MSc in Occupational Health (Policy and Practice) at Cardiff University.
Clare specialises in workplace injuries, repetitive strain, road traffic accidents and persistent pain complaints. She helps patients resolve their symptoms quickly, to avoid their injuries becoming a long-term issue, and is able to work with persistent and complex conditions to help patients reach their full potential.
James McDermott completed his Physiotherapy degree in 2012 from St George’s University Hospital. James has gained a wealth of experience working within the NHS, private and sports sector.
With a passion for all sports, James has a particular interest in sports related injuries which has led him to gain experience with Charlton Athletic Football Academy. Additionally, James has regularly attended various sporting events offering his skills in preventative and acute management both pitch-side and within clinics.
James’ experience allows him to treat a wide range of clients including those suffering from acute complaints to the more complex post-operative conditions in addition to the amateur/high level athlete. James encompasses a patient-focused approach to treatment and utilises his skills in manual therapy to a high standard and promotes Pilates and exercise prescription to his clients.
James commits his spare time to his climbing and mountaineering training and has ascended a variety of mountains throughout the Alps. This allows James to be fully aware of the dedication needed to achieve personal goals; the frustrations of injuries affecting such achievements and therefore the importance of preventative rehabilitation.
