John Flinn - BSc Hons/HCPC/AACP
I studied Physiotherapy at Manchester Metropolitan University before going on to work in the NHS, Private clinics, a GP clinic and a semi-professional football team. During my time working in hospital I developed knowledge in many areas of Physiotherapy (Orthopaedic/Respiratory/Neurological/Musculoskeletal) and have developed understanding of a range of medical conditions which allows me to treat complex patients in a holistic manner.
I have also completed Level 1 & 3 APPI Pilates courses and the AACP foundation Acupuncture course. I use both Pilates and Acupuncture as adjuncts to treatment of chronic pain conditions, especially low back pain.
Sam Bakes - MSc Hons/ HCPC
I am a Chartered Physiotherapist having obtained a MSc degree in Physiotherapy at Teesside University with a background in Psychology; having previously studied at Durham University gaining a BSc degree. I have previously worked in the NHS gaining experience in multiple fields of physiotherapy, including both acute and outpatient settings. My passion is musculoskeletal physiotherapy helping people regain loss of function and independence through injuries. Outside of work I enjoy the gym with a keen interest in promoting strength and physical well-being, recognising the multiple benefits beyond physical health. I also enjoy travelling and exploring new places and cultures.
