I’m Kevin Powell, a physiotherapist with 12 years experience working in private practice clinics, and for high profile clients including Brentford, Watford and West Ham FC. I also spent time working for the British Army as a locum physiotherapist. I will help you to recover from injury and restore mobility, maintaining your fitness level by helping you to exercise around your specific needs.
Like many young boys, I wanted to be a footballer. It wasn’t to be but my love of sport and fitness led to training as a personal trainer, gym instructor and class instructor at what is now known as Virgin Active.
I retrained as a physiotherapist, earning sufficient credits to study at Brunel University. During my placement, I spent time on wards and enjoyed helping and caring for people, especially the elderly on the stroke wards. This opened my eyes to another side of physiotherapy and my first paid physio job was working for the MS association in Walthamstow.
One thing I have learned – I’m a far better physio than I ever was a footballer!
“This is what I was meant to do, I feel incredibly lucky to have a job that I love and I take my responsibility to my patients seriously. I continue to work alongside consultants from all over Europe, attending international conferences and networking with the best in the industry in my quest for continuous personal and professional development.”
I work with a variety of clients from office based workers and busy parents to yoga and pilates enthusiasts who have overstretched their lower backs. They tend to be busy people in need of support recovering from an injury without giving up exercise and decreasing their fitness levels. I also have older clients who need to work on their mobility in order to travel the world comfortably or simply get around the golf course.
Every client is treated as an individual and I offer a holistic approach, treating the patient not the limb. I educate my clients, helping them to understand the process with easy to follow treatment guides, and inspiring them to make appropriate changes to other factors such as diet. My aim is to identify and treat the underlying issue, simplify the recovery process and provide both the tools and the encouragement necessary to recover.
I am motivated by helping people to feel better, guiding them towards a healthier lifestyle and aiding their recovery from injuries without the need for surgery. This is a journey we will embark on together and I am with you every step of the way. I have 12 years professional experience but more importantly, I have suffered sporting injuries and have had first hand experience of the frustration you feel when an injury is restrictive and recovery feels slow.
“My role is to support, motivate and even entertain you when your spirits need a lift!”
