Paul Harrison – Boston Physiotherapy
Paul graduated with a degree in Physiotherapy from Brunel University in London. He started his career working full time as Physiotherapy Lead at a semi professional football club where he looked after the injuries and rehabilitation of a range of teams and age groups, from the First team to the
College Academy players at one of the largest schemes of its type in the country.
This job encouraged his interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation with a particular focus on treatment and management of ankle, knee and hip injuries in both adult and teen athletes.
Paul then moved into private practice to diversify his experiences working in a number of clinics alongside personal trainers and strength coaches. This allowed him to gain further experience in the management of a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries, from sports injuries to postural dysfunctions in sporting and non sporting clientele and also advance his manual therapy skills and knowledge of exercise based rehabilitation.
Paul then gained overseas experience and travelled to New Zealand to take up a post in a successful clinic in Auckland, where he was involved in the treatment of a number of high level junior and senior sportspeople over a range of sports while also gaining experience treating patients with chronic cervical spine pain and migraine.
After returning to the UK, Paul returned to private practice and gained experience working alongside Pilates instructors and gaining a qualification in the McKenzie method of treatment and management of lower back pain.
Paul recently moved to Lincolnshire and took up a post with Total Health Care Clinics.
Paul takes an overall view and approach to treatment and rehabilitation, incorporating a range of treatment modalities into his treatment sessions including soft tissue and joint mobilisations, exercise based rehab and prevention, and acupuncture. His treatment aim is to identify and treat the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms and once pain has been reduced, to set ongoing management strategies for prevention.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
