Who Is Behind Manor Drive Physiotherapy?
Manor Drive Physiotherapy Clinic is owned and run by myself, Chris Newman. I am a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 20 years experience treating Musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, chronic pain, and post-orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1997, and spent my early days as a qualified physiotherapist in South Africa working in the public and private health sector, for a local professional rugby team, and the South African Men's Softball Team (World Series 2000). I moved to the United Kingdom in 2001, and have worked for various private healthcare organisations, including BMI Healthcare and Nuffield Health, and London Scottish Rugby Club (both Professional and Amateur club).
The Physio is a Builder?
With the support of my lovely (and patient) wife I took on the task of building an extension at home to house my own clinic. After much blood (angle grinders are dangerous tools!) sweat and tears, I succeeded in bulding my clinic, quite literally from the ground up. I gained tremendous insight into what builders have to deal with, but also the satisfaction of completing such a project, especially considering I had never built anything before. Never underestimate what you can achieve with some hard work and research.
Open At Last!
The building was completed in October 2016, and Manor Drive Physiotherapy Clinic was open for business.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (PH61695), a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (067621), and have an enhanced DBS certificate (copy available on request).
