Matthew Kent

QUALIFICATIONS: Chartered Physiotherapist, HCPC & CSP Registered, MSc Physiotherapy

Matt completed a BSc in Human Biology before progressing onto a MSc Physiotherapy degree at the University of Birmingham and a PGCert Musculoskeletal Ultrasound degree at Brunel University. ​The completion of these three degrees led to a strong interest in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy.

Matt has worked extensively within a large NHS trust, overseas in New Zealand and most recently managing the physiotherapy department of a private North London hospital, focusing on orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injuries. This has allowed Matt to work extensively with patients suffering from a mix of acute and chronic injury, chronic pain and also those requiring post orthopaedic rehabilitation. He has a particular special interest in the rehabilitation and return to sport of patients post ACL reconstruction as well as knee pain and shoulder pathologies.

Matt has completed university-based training in diagnostic ultrasound for musculoskeletal conditions. This allows Matt to incorporate diagnostic ultrasound into his initial assessments and offer a comprehensive diagnosis and management plan for a number of different upper and lower limb injuries.

To achieve best outcomes with his patients, Matt prefers a holistic, individual approach to treatment using multiple methods, with a particular focus on education, exercise-based rehabilitation and manual therapy. He also liaises closely with orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine doctors and other multidisciplinary members to provide the best care for his patients.

Outside of work, Matt is a keen rugby player and keeps his fitness up through functional strength training and running.
