John Manders BSc (Hons) MCSP HCPC
PhysioFitness is the private physiotherapy practice of John Manders who has been providing physiotherapy services for more than a decade in and around the Maidenhead area. He formed the company more than 10 years ago in order to bridge the gap between injury and getting back into normal everyday life, whether that be just to be able to walk the dog or complete high level fitness activities. Prior to becoming a Physiotherapist he had extensive experience as a Fitness Instructor for a large Private Health Club in Maidenhead. He therefore uses this knowledge to ensure all aspects are covered in the recovery from injury back to full fitness (Hence the name PhysioFitness).
John began his adult life completing two degrees, the first in Sports Science at Kingston University and the second in Physiotherapy and Brunel University. During his Physiotherapy degree he completed numerous hospital placements in many of the large London teaching hospitals and one at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre – Headley Court (National rehabilitation unit for the Military).
John worked in the NHS covering the areas of Respiratory, Orthopaedic, Musculoskeletal and Neurological Physiotherapy, before becoming a Senior Physiotherapist specialising in the field of Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy. He then moved to The Police Rehabilitation Centre as a Senior Physiotherapist in a very busy department, treating Police officers who present with a range of conditions including low back pain and neck pain, day to day aches and pains, sports injuries and complex multi-trauma.
He continues to work there on a part time basis attending regular in-service training sessions and courses for continuous professional development ensuring he provides the most up to date evidence based practice to his patients both at the Police Rehabilitation Centre and in the private physiotherapy setting at PhysioFitness in Maidenhead. For the rest of his time he focuses on private physiotherapy to people in and around the Maidenhead area with appointments available in the day time, evenings and weekends.
