A Consultant Physiotherapist for Connect Health leading on musculoskeletal services both regionally and nationally, alongside development of training and education, research and contribution to national policy.
I took a relatively unorthodox route into Physiotherapy, from mines and demolitions in the Army, to a Physical Training Instructor in the Prison Service and have recently been appointed
I have worked extensively as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist and Injection Therapist within a variety of NHS settings, including a Musculoskeletal Interface Service working alongside GPwSI and Rheumatology Consultants. Previously, Professional Head of Physiotherapy at Nuffield Health as well as Lecturing at Keele University has allowed me to experience a wide variety of aspects within healthcare. I have owned a number of private practices, traveled extensively with Elite Sport to various World and European Championships and spoken at numerous conferences, most recently at the World Physical Therapy Conference in South Africa in 2017. My real passion lies within Advanced Musculoskeletal Practice and Clinical Leadership and you will generally find me contributing to clinical debate on Twitter @stevenawoor, blogging, Obstacle Course Racing, Caveman Training, drinking espresso, running our two children around and spending time with a very understanding and exceptional wife.
