After working as a research assistant for the University on a movement analysis project, he took up a rotational post in a large Dublin teaching hospital specialising in neurosurgery. He then went to work in Australia, where he gained experience in a rehabilitation hospital helping those with multiple injuries from severe trauma and also worked in private practice.
He returned to Ireland and worked with the Galway Gaelic football team during their All Ireland football championship winning season in 2001. He moved to England to study for a Masters degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine which he completed in 2003 from the University of Nottingham. During this time he was the physiotherapist for the Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey team.
Kevin moved to Cambridge in 2004 and after working as an occupational health physiotherapy advisor for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company he set up the Spinal Physiotherapy and Sports Medicine Clinic. Kevin is also a member of the Jockey injury management team for the professional jockeys association providing race day physiotherapy at racecourses in the eastern region including Newmarket racecourse and also at Aintree for the Grand National. He also lectures at the British Horse Racing school in Newmarket and the University of Nottingham on injury management and prevention in horseracing. He has been a physiotherapist at multi sport events such as the UK school games since 2007 and part of the physiotherapy team at the Equestrian events for the London 2012 Olympics.
In his very limited spare time he enjoys playing golf and currently has a handicap of 4.
"Kevin was very good at explaining why he was giving me specific exercises to do and talking me though how to do them. He was professional, approachable, made me feel at ease, and most importantly the exercises worked for me. I don't think there is anything he could have done better."
"Kevin quickly identified the problem and provided exercises that immediately made a difference. I had two appointments and didn't pressurise me at all to have further ones, which has been the case in the distant past with another practise, when I had back problems."
"Kevin is outstanding. Extremely clever at diagnosis and treatment. He instils great confidence and is hugely motivating. He also has a brilliant sense of humour! I have recommended him to numerous friends."
"My Physiotherapist Kevin has been highly professional, very kind and down to earth. I received excellent treatment, clear and detailed explanation of the condition I got. The receptionist was also very kind and has excellent communication skills. Overall I am happy that I chose this clinic for treatment and I would definitely recommend this clinic to everyone."
"I felt that Kevin listened well, thought and analysed well, and decided on the best course of action that provided benefits to me both in the clinic and outside through exercises. He had a positive outlook that helped me to put my injury in context. I have no criticism"
