Qualifications and Experience
Jason qualified in 1995 with a degree in Physiotherapy, and went on to do a Diploma in Sports Medicine. He possesses a Society of Orthopaedic Medicine qualification, a Masters level qualification in Injection Therapy, and is also a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
Jason has worked in the NHS and with various sports teams including; Weston Rugby Club, South West Women’s Hockey League, and British Gymnastics, as the main Physiotherapist for the Great Britain Sports Acrobatic Team. He provided medical cover at various World Championships, including the World Games in Japan, where he also looked after the Great Britain Tumbling and Trampoline teams.
His knowledge and experience has lead him to teach locally with medical professionals, and present nationally at the Royal Society of Medicine’s (RSM) annual sports medicine conference. In 2017, Jason had the honour of presenting at the local GPs Planet Meeting.
Jason continues to work part-time in the NHS as an extended scope practitioner, and the remainder of his time in the private sector as Co-Director and Founder of Resolve Health Physiotherapy.
Jason is a former international gymnast and Great Britain Sports Aerobics Champion. He retired from gymnastics in 2000, as reigning GB champion to return to his real passion; Shaolin Kung Fu.
Today, he continues to compete in Shaolin Wushu Kung Fu, and is the former UK Wushu Open Traditional Weapons Champion, UK Shaolin Long Weapons Champion, and two-time European Shaolin Champion.
He developed an interest in knees after injuring his own in 1999; an injury that required surgery. After returning to international competition, Jason started to develop his assessment and treatment skills around the knee – something that led him to work alongside Mr Michael Radford, Orthopaedic Consultant Knee Specialist. He has since developed the knee service at Weston General Hospital, alongside Mr Radford, playing a key role around ligament reconstruction. Further to this, Jason has been asked to work alongside two hip consultants, Mr Mark Price and Mr Koye Odutola, as their Extended Scope Practitioner, to help develop the hip and lower limb service at Weston General Hospital.
