Paul Head


Paul is an experienced physiotherapist, currently undertaking a PhD into the use of blood flow restriction and neuromuscular electrical stimulation to optimise muscular strength and size improvements both pre and post surgical operations and after injury. Paul has a special interest in post-operative cases (such as ACL reconstructions, total hip and knee replacements) as well as injuries of the knee, spine and shoulder.

He now works exclusively in private practice and professional sport but has experience in the NHS.

Paul has worked with international athletes from professional sports including rugby, football, cricket and athletics, including rehabilitating a Judo athlete from a broken leg in February 2021 to be able to compete for Ireland in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Games.

Additionally, during 2021 he provided educational services to Crystal palace Football Club and Leeds United Football Club to their respective medical teams.

Paul has also worked with athletes from Preston North End FC, Surrey CCC, Essex CCC and iron man triathletes to name just a few.

He first studied a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Therapy at the University of Central Lancashire between 2008-2011. He went on to complete a Masters in Physiotherapy at King’s College London in 2014. He then went on to start a PhD at St Mary’s University in 2016 and is projected to complete his doctorate in 2023. Paul has been published in multiple international journals and he has also lectured and provided training for optimising muscle strength and size throughout the rehabilitation period both nationally and internationally.

His approach is collaborative, working with the client to find the solution to their problem, whether that is an acute or long standing issue.
