Advanced Practice Physiotherapist
Trained as a Physiotherapist, Sonographer and Injection Therapist, Stewart specialises in diagnostic ultrasound scanning and ultrasound-guided injections of the upper and lower limbs. Combining his skills, he is able to provide a specialised service involving detailed clinical examination, ultrasound scanning, joint and soft-tissue injections and rehabilitation advice for joint, soft tissue and nerve conditions of the upper and lower limbs.
Stewart holds degrees in Sport & Exercise Science (BSc Hons) and Physiotherapy (MSc) as well as obtaining a Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Ultrasound and a Post Graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Injection Therapy. As a Physiotherapist of over 13 years he commonly sees both simple and complex conditions of the upper and lower limbs in his practise. He has had a longstanding sub-specialist interest in shoulder problems and continues to enjoy this aspect of his clinical work.
His approach to treatment is always based on the individual and balances clinical evidence with the specific circumstances of the patient. Where possible, he will look to address the cause of a problem and work toward minimising recurrence.
Stewart is the Clinical Director at Life Fit Wellness and oversees the provision of high quality care delivered at the clinic. In addition to his clinical commitments, Stewart enjoys teaching Nationally on ultrasound education. As a former international badminton player, he is delighted to be involved with the Badminton World Federation Research Commission, where he is actively involved in injury prevention research.
When he’s not busy at the clinic, Stewart tries to follow his own advice by keeping fit. He has always enjoyed racket sports, but can also be seen running and in the gym. His real downtime is spent with his wife and young daughters, climbing a hill, watching a movie or playing his drums!
