Qualified to Masters level, he has juggled treating musculoskeletal injuries and issues in the NHS with a promising 3km and 5km running career, which has seen him finish 10th at the 2017 World University Games following a junior career which hit the heights of becoming 2012 Junior Mens Diamond League 3,000m Champion.

As an elite runner and a patient of the practice himself for many years, Matt is well aware of the impact injuries can have, not only on the careers of elite athletes, but also on recreational runners looking to stay fit and healthy.

This interest goes beyond the presenting symptom or injury, as he is always looking to discover the root cause of a problem through looking at compensatory mechanisms, strength and flexibility issues.

Matt joined the practice in January 2018 and continues to balance treating patients of all interests and injuries with his international running career.
