    Christopher Pettit

    Movement Perfected Founder, Senior Physiotherapist

    After over a decade in the Physio and the Sports industry I knew the time was right to set up Movement Perfected. My goal has been to bring together talented professionals with varied and diverse experience, all able to deliver flexible and highly personalised services to meet the needs of a broad client base.

    Movement Perfected now has two central London practices and a team of four highly motivated and experienced professionals as well as a dedicated support team who combine our skills and experience to give our clients exceptional service.

    Qualifications

    • Chartered Physiotherapist HCPC
    • Sport and Exercises Scientist
    • Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation Instructor
    • American College of Sport and Exercise Medicine HFI instructor
    • Qualified Physiotherapeutic Acupuncture

     

    Skills, training and career highlights

    I have been working as a Physiotherapist since 2005, beginning in the NHS specialising in neurological rehabilitation and critical care. I moved to a London based practice, where I joined an educational scheme focusing on musculoskeletal physiotherapy before travelling to Australia to join the Mosman Sports Injury Clinic and complete my Rehabilitation Pilates Series with Polestar – renowned for their forward thinking approach to physiotherapy – which encouraged me to refine my clinical reasoning and treatment skills.

    I returned to the UK in 2010 and took up a Physio post at the Broadgate Spine and Joint Clinic where I became the head Physiotherapist. It’s always been my dream to set up my own practice so in 2013 I began Movement Perfected.

    Personal Passions

    Cycling is now my main sport and I am a member of both Brixton CC and Dulwich Paragons CC. I cycle regularly in Kent and Surrey and as often as I can, I head for the hills! In the last couple of years I have cycled Lands End to John O’Groats and taken part in several major European cyclosportives, including the Marmotte and the Maratona. This year I plan to cycle in Tenerife, Italy, France, Switzerland and Majorca.   I also enjoy snowboarding and skiing – the combination of fresh air and speed is a winner.

    I believe in getting strong for sports rather than the other way round and keep myself in shape with regular doses of practicing what I preach. I use modified pilates to keep me supple and strong allied to plyometrics to keep me bouncy and fast.

  • Jose Marcelino - Physiotherapy

    Jose Marcelino

    Consultant Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

     

    Qualifications

    • Chartered Physiotherapist, HCPC
    • Fellow of the Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine
    • MSc Exercise and Health
    • Member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society

     

    Skills, training and career highlights

    I have been working as a manual therapist for over 30 years and the human body has not yet stopped amazing me. I have had the opportunity to work with fantastic people who’ve encouraged me to think beyond the obvious and I do my best to enhance the overall physical condition of an individual and see the body as a whole, rather than just treating the local issue.

    I have been a Senior Lecturer in musculoskeletal medicine since the early nineties and I am actively involved in the training of physiotherapists and GPs which not only keeps me up to date with current trends but is also a constant spur to further develop my clinical reasoning and practice. While working as a Physiotherapist Consultant for a London Trust I was able to explore complicated musculoskeletal problems and easily identify the need for a secondary referral and opinion.

    I have been described as a brilliant diagnostician and enjoy explaining the model of what the problem might be to patients so that they can better work alongside me in their rehabilitation process. I use a combination of manual techniques, from manipulation to soft tissue release, acupuncture, massage and injection therapy.

    Personal Passions

    I share my free moments with friends over a glass of wine or a culinary experience. I think food is the essence of life and there is nothing better than the satisfaction of a good meal in a good company. I am also a passionate traveler and love to explore new places, cultures and above all ” to live the experience” and not just collect experiences.

    Movement Perfected, Senior Physiotherapist

     

    Qualifications

    • Chartered Physiotherapist HCPC
    • APPI Pilates Mat Instructor
    • APPI Pilates Machine Instructor
    • Qualified Physiotherapeutic Acupuncture

     

    Skills, training and career highlights

    After graduating from Cardiff University in 2006, I worked for three years in a large NHS teaching hospital completing core rotations in a variety of Physiotherapy fields including trauma and orthopaedics, respiratory care, neurosurgery, neurological rehabilitation and musculoskeletal outpatients.

    My Physiotherapy focus was honed by my love of tennis which began at the age of five, and so it was natural for me to develop my interest in musculoskeletal injuries and sports rehabilitation. I also travelled to Sydney to work in private practice, developing my skills in biomechanics, movement dysfunction and lumbo-pelvic stability, focusing on Pilates as a key element of rehabilitation.

    After spending a short period in the French Alps skiing and treating skiers and snowboarders I returned London where I worked within a hospital and clinic setting. Continuing my passion for Pilates I joined the APPI Health group and taught everything from one-to-one classes to sports specific group sessions.

    I’m Bupa approved and spent three years working as part of Bupa Clinic in close alliance with Sports Medicine Physicians, GPs and Podiatrists. I’ve also set up numerous Pilates classes for a range of different levels.

    I focus on rehabilitative and graded strength training and call on my manual skills and acupuncture therapy to assist with pain relief.

    Personal Passions

    When not at work I’ll be running or riding my bike with various cycle and running clubs. I challenge myself with European cyclosportives and compete in various running and triathlon races, having raced several marathons, including the London Marathon twice, although my preferred distances are the Half Marathon and Half Ironman Triathlons. I’ve recently qualified for Great Britain Age Group within the Middle Distance Triathlon taking place in June 2017.

    Anna Oberaigner

    Movement Perfected, Senior Physiotherapist

     

    Qualifications

    • Chartered Physiotherapist HCPC
    • APPI Pilates Instructor
    • MSc Sports Physiotherapy

     

    Skills, training and career highlights

    I started my career in Vienna, in Austria’s biggest trauma hospital after I graduated in 2011 which led to me discovering my passion to treat working and sports accidents. I specialised in musculoskeletal therapy of acute traumatic injuries; immediate care unit patients and traumatic brain injury patients.

    Although I’ve worked in many different areas of physio, treating musculoskeletal outpatients has always been my centre of interest, especially where sporting injuries are concerned. I’ve undertaken extra training to enlarge my knowledge around patient needs and treatment possibilities, for example, completing Mulligan A/B and Clinical Patient Management has allowed me to treat patients in an integrated way, using acupressure massage to activate the body meridians or influencing via visceral therapy.

    Because injuries resulting from playing football, basketball or caused by winter sports used to be on my daily agenda, I was led to undertake an MSc in Sports Physiotherapy and Exercise Medicine at Middlesex University in 2015.

    Personal Passions

    I love to be active in my free time and I enjoy running, gym, yoga, playing tennis, snowboarding and skiing. I also enjoy trying out new restaurants. A particular passion of mine is travel; I lived in Argentina for nearly a year before starting university and my love of exploring and travelling has led to road trips through the USA, Australia and South Africa to London. Living and studying in London has brought me into contact with many interesting people, which I consider to be one of the most positive aspects being a physio; it’s a thrill to get to know a broad diversity of people from all over the world and many different professions and backgrounds.
