We are THRIVE Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists Niamh and Martin. We have always been driven to help people achieve optimal outcomes. That is why we think “big picture” during consultations, and challenge ourselves to keep us at the forefront of our field.
We teach clinical skills worldwide. Our ongoing pain research, some of which takes place in Guernsey, involves collaborating with the world’s leading researchers in physiotherapy, pain science, clinical psychology, musculoskeletal disorders and public health.
