Simon Robinson

About Me:

Simon comes from a small town in Northern Ireland, a part of the world famous for being where Game of Thrones is filmed and where the Titanic was built.  In his spare time he likes to keep fit and enjoys nothing more than a good pint of Guinness (which he says he is yet to find in Hong Kong… suggestions welcome).

Physio Background:

Simon graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland with a first class honours degree in physiotherapy.  He then moved to London and worked with one of the leading physiotherapy providers in the UK, working at the likes of Harrods, Financial Times and London Fire Brigade. He also worked with Crystal Palace Football Club before joining Joint Dynamics.

Qualifications & Certifications:

BSc Physiotherapy
Sports Massage Diploma
Kinesiology & Sports Taping
Dry Needling

 Physio Philosophy:

One of the most common things I har from people is that they just want to know what is causing their pain.  With that in mind, after i have conducted a through assessment I like to spend a bit of extra time really explaining in detail the nature of their condition and the rehabilitation process.  Because I believe that only when we really understand what’s going on and why we’re going to do what we’re going to do can things improve and we can achieve our goals.  I favour a scientific evidence based approach, incorporating exercise with some hands-on treatment and good chat to encourage and restore functional movement.

Special Interest:

Treating shoulders and rehabilitation of patients recovering from knee surgeries..

Simon’s life of misadventure…

  1. My older brother pulled my arm and dislocated my shoulder when I was about 5 years old.
  2. I stood on a sea urchin whilst on holiday in Spain – Very traumatic, wouldn’t recommend!
  3. I once got a huge nail lodge in my face in a bizarre skiing accident

The best thing about my job:

I’m very lucky that I love what I do, I get to meet really interesting people from all walks of life on a daily basis and help them recover from their injuries and get them back better and stronger than they were before. Working alongside a fantastic team at Joint Dynamics, we’re all constantly learning new things from each other and there’s always a good vide in the gym (apart from when Ben Higgins is in charge of the music). That, and the coffee machine is pretty good.

Can often be heard saying:

“What’s the craic?”…. Irish for “How are you?”
