Stuart was born in Greater London and graduated from Manchester University in 1995.
After graduation, he worked in one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe for 3 years as a rotational physiotherapist covering burns, plastic surgery, spinal injuries, amputees, cardiothoracic intensive care and orthopaedics.
With this wide experience, he then emigrated to Australia and travelled extensively, eventually settling in Newcastle at the John Hunter Hospital as the senior physiotherapist in Accident & Emergency.
In 1999 Stuart relocated to Sydney where he worked as a senior physiotherapist in various practices across Sydney and as practice manager at a large multi-centred practice in St Leonards.
Stuart was the first physiotherapist to join Brad at Sydney Physiotherapy Solutions, 3 months after it was opened in 2007.
Orthopaedically, Stuart has developed a special interest and a reputation in hip and shoulder biomechanics over the years.
Since 2009 he has been undertaking research through Sydney University looking at Men’s Health Physiotherapy, working to improve continence and erectile function of men suffering with prostate cancer. Currently he is looking to progress into full PhD specialising in using real time ultrasound to teach men how to more accurately isolate effective pelvic floor muscle control. His expertise extends to effective treatment of men with chronic pelvic pain, urinary and sexual dysfunction.
Stuart has been an invited speaker at several national & international conferences. His lectures on effective pelvic muscle control have been widely acclaimed.
Stuart states he is a full-time physio, part time researcher, and father to 4 young kids……this means that he gave up playing sports a while ago now and lives his sporting dreams vicariously through his children’s sporting achievements.
