Physiotherapist BSc (Physio)

Alessandro is a Senior Physiotherapist and qualified at the University of Udine, Italy. He recently moved to UK and is also studying for an MSc in Exercise and Sports Medicine at the University of Birmingham.

Alessandro has gained a wide range of experiences in different private practices, with the main focus on Musculoskeletal and Sports injuries. He has a keen interest in treating chronic pain and post-surgical conditions, particularly ACL reconstructions. He also worked for a semi-professional football team in Italy, providing pitch-side emergency care for adults and children and is experienced in the diagnosis and management of acute muscle, tendon and ligament injuries.

He uses a combination of “hands on” and “hands off” techniques, basing his work on the latest available evidence in the field. His approach always involves a thorough evaluation of the problem, followed by a shared and bespoke treatment plan with the patient. Alessandro emphasises the role of the patient’s education and active involvement in the rehabilitation process, providing constant guidance throughout.

Alessandro is passionate about his job and enjoys helping patients achieve their goals whether that is running a marathon completely pain-free or getting back to sport after a long-standing injury. As a runner himself with a stubborn knee problem, Alessandro developed over the years an interest in treating running injuries. He can offer a thorough running video-assessment, training advice, and a progressive strength & conditioning programme to get you back to running with a smile.

Alessandro is also a keen skier since a very young age, both cross-country and downhill. He therefore understands the importance of being ski fit and ready to hit the slopes when winter time comes! Whether you are wondering if you are fit enough to ski or simply would like to receive advice on how to prevent injuries, he will be able to help.

When not working, Alessandro loves playing football and supporting his favourite team. And of course, being Italian, he loves cooking a nice meal to share with his friends!
