Dean graduated from the University of Teesside in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation and is a member of The British Association of Sport Rehabilitators (BASRaT). As a Soft Tissue Therapist, he helps people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system. He does this by using biomechanical assessments, treatment programmes, manual therapy, exercise rehabilitation and education to treat injuries and manage pain. He uses a complete approach, considering the whole needs of the individual to allow optimal recovery and placing the patient at the centre of their own care.
During his time as a Soft Tissue Therapist, Dean has taken a particular interest in hip, lower back pain management, and corrective exercises. This interest has given him the skills to assess, address, and manage incorrect movement patterns and imbalances. He specialises in hip and lower back pain and uses a blend of treatment modalities to relieve and manage pain with implementing structural treatment plans and hands-on therapies.
Dean has worked alongside Team GB athletes in powerlifting, Olympic lifting, and swimming.
In his spare time, Dean has had a successful rugby career and has also worked in the fitness industry for many years. He also has a real passion for his own personal health and wellbeing and enjoys exercise such as strength and conditioning, CrossFit, powerlifting and general fitness.
