A little bit about Will Cooper Physio
I am chartered Physiotherapist from Brackley, regulated by both the Health & Care Professions Council and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. I have also undergone a DBS screening procedure enabling me to work with both children and adults.
My Physiotherapy career began upon graduating from Coventry University in 2011 with an Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy. Since graduating, I have pursued a keen interest in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (muscles/bones/joints/ligaments/tendons) and during my previous employment with a large national Physiotherapy company, i was further trained in the effective management of joint and soft tissue injuries.
I set up my own practice in March 2013, as I felt there was a demand for a ‘hands on’ Physiotherapy approach within Brackley and the surrounding areas, in addition to the exercise based approach that tends to dominate NHS Physiotherapy services. Since becoming self-employed, I have undertaken various additional courses in strength and conditioning, podiatric biomechanical assessments, sports first aid, knee pain, Kinesiology taping and conditions of the foot and ankle.
Away from work, I am a keen sportsman myself and play both Rugby and Cricket competitively for local clubs. Throughout the week I also undertake regular weights and cardiovascular training sessions in order to prepare myself for the demands of rugby, as well as preventing injury and improving my performance. I feel it is my sporting background and previous injuries that initially sparked my passion for Physiotherapy. As many of us have experienced, there is nothing worse than being unable to take part in sport or complete your daily routine due to an injury. It is this that provides me with the drive and enthusiasm to get people back to full fitness as quickly as possible!
