Summary

 

Summary

My working activities entail GP practice, GPSI sessions in musculoskeletal medicine, post- and undergraduate teaching at Imperial College and service development in the interface bridging secondary and primary care. My interests as a GP and academic are pain medicine and education.

I trained in Germany in Rehabilitation Medicine and try to integrate these hands-on skills into the work in General Practice. Hands-on treatments have always fascinated me and studying in Berlin provided plenty of stimulation, seeing different social and political systems.

After graduating I specialised in manual medicine using a combination of trigger point techniques, HVLA manipulations and soft tissue work, and chose physical medicine and rehabilitation as a career. I trained in a caring institution integrating manual medicine, acupuncture, psychological therapies and exercise in a multimodal manner. I see the integration of migrants as the most stimulating and challenging aspect of my work in an inner city environment.
