“I love the dynamic that physiotherapy can bring to a patient’s wellbeing and recovery. Through movement and exercise I love to engage with patients to help them achieve their goals of living a fulfilled life, or excelling to their optimal health in their chosen sport.”
In 2016 Pedro decided to embark on a new adventure and moved to London, seeking new and exciting challenges as a Physio. London has always been an attractive place to work due to its vibrant city culture and numerous networking opportunities. Since then he has worked in different private clinics, including one year working with medicolegal cases with a majority of back, neck and whiplash associated injuries, followed by other private clinics where Pedro has maintained a busy practice treating patients with a wide range of musculoskeletal and Orthopaedics problems.
Pedro has a holistic view of his patients and recognizes the importance of a healthy lifestyle – stress, sleep, diet and exercise – as having a major influence on virtually any injury or painful condition. He has been continuously trying to improve his skill set and effectiveness in order to meet his patients’ goals in the most appropriate and safest possible way. To reflect this Pedro has had extensive training to develop his clinical assessment and treatment skills, including manual (soft tissue techniques, manipulation) techniques, taping, high level and specific sports rehab, running assessment/analysis, and significant training on clinical reasoning and screening process as a first contact practitioner.
“I love to increase my knowledge and understanding of how the body works but above all I love engaging with patients and getting them back into a healthy lifestyle. I integrate both manual hands on and rehabilitation physiotherapy into my treatments in order for me to achieve this.”
