Joseph Chimera BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy. PgDip Man Therapy. PgDip Musculoskeletal Medicine. MHCPC. MCSP. MSOMM
I qualified as physiotherapist in 1999. I’ve done extensive post graduate training including acupuncture, diploma in Manual Therapy, diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine, peripheral Injection Therapy and Independent Non-Medical Prescribing. Currently working as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist (NHS) and as a manual therapist. I have been working in private clinics for ten years.
Currently on Sabbatical completing a MSc Musculoskeletal Medicine (Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh)
Wealth of experience as a specialist musculoskeletal practitioner with special interest in spinal and peripheral manual physiotherapy, sports injuries rehabilitation and practise acupuncture.
I am a good listener, very compassionate and very patient centred. In addition to formal physiotherapy, I will also “help you to help yourself”. I do comprehensive assessment and treatment techniques tailored towards agreed therapeutic goals – relieving symptoms, empowering and equipping you to self-manage. Where physiotherapy is not indicated, I can advise your GP on appropriate investigations and best pain control medication for your condition – in line with my current role as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist. Working alongside a spinal consultant in the NHS has enhanced my interest and understanding of spinal pain – including best physiotherapy and medical management for spinal pain.
I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and Health and Care Professions Council as well as a member of the Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine (SOMM).
Outside work, I enjoy road cycling and running regularly. I have participated in a number of charity bike rides and cycling sportives. My cycling target is to do a 100-mile bike ride! Best one-off distance cycled so far is 76 miles for Against Breast Cancer Charity in Oxford. The best I’ve run is 12km. I aim to do a half marathon in future.
