Ian is local to Taunton and was educated at Taunton School in Somerset before heading off to The University of Nottingham to study for a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy. During his school and university years Ian has always had a strong involvement in sport. He captained Somerset under 18s rugby XV and also achieved international honours when he represented hockey for Wales. Rugby has always been his number one sporting passion and on arrival at university he was thrilled to be selected for The Leicester Tigers Academy. Playing for the 2nd XV at Welford Road will always be a true highlight in Ian's sporting achievements.
Throughout his training and employment as an NHS physiotherapist, Ian maintained a keen interest in sports injuries and enjoyed time working for Somerset Rugby Club as their pitch side Physiotherapist. In 2007, an opportunity arose for Ian to become the Physiotherapist for Somerset County Cricket Club. After a year in this role he was appointed Head of Sports Medicine for the club. This was a role he continued for 6 seasons and during this time Ian saw Somerset rise, not only in Domestic Cricket, but also in World Cricket as they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in India. Whilst at Somerset, Ian was approached to become the Physiotherapist for The ECB (The England and Wales Cricket Board). He completed three tours abroad aiding the development of future England cricket stars.
Away from work Ian enjoys playing hockey locally for Taunton Vale and is a keen cyclist. In October 2013, Ian was proud to complete his first triathlon.
With Ian's broad base of experience both in elite sports physiotherapy and invaluable time spent working in the NHS, he is able to provide exceptional assessment and management of all your musculoskeletal needs. Ian is currently training to use diagnostic ultrasound which he hopes to offer patients in the near future to compliment his overall assessment.
