Consultant Orthapaedic Hand and Wrist Surgeon

"I have worked with Ian in his capacity as head physiotherapist for Hull KR and also in his private practice for a number of years. Ian is an extremely capable and caring clinician. His expertise in sports and musculoskeletal medicine has meant that he has been able to return patients back to their sport after shoulder surgery, quickly and safely. He always puts the patient first and foremost, and he understands the needs of athletes and non athletes alike. Ian communicates with me constantly about shared patients so we have been able to treat them together for the best outcome."


Leonard Funk, BSc MSc FRCS (Tr&Orth) FFSEM (UK)

Consultant Orthapaedic Shoulder Surgeon

I first came across Ian at Hull Kingston Rovers as Head Physio, where we became good friends over our many years

Over that time i had a couple of serious injurues, 1: broken leg which required a metal plate and screws to fix, 2: shoulder injury which again required surgery to repair. On both occasions Ian was very quick, professional and thorough to give me all the help and treatment i needed.

The result of this was, I was back in the hands of Ian for treatment and rehabilitation in no time and back playing rugby alot quicker than expected. My experience of the time we worked together was the best yet. Id recommend Ian to anybody and everyone who needs help.


Kris Welham, Professional Rugby League Player Hull KR & England

During my 15 years in professional rugby league where accuracy of diagnosis and appropriate treatment is crucial, Ian proved himself time and time again as one of the best physios in the business. I always had the utmost confidence in Ian, his attention to detail and rehab methods always ensured I was able to continue playing to the best of my ability through some very tough times. I cannot recommend Ian highly enough and the Isle of Man are fortunate to have Ian, a physio of outstanding knowledge and skill.
