Colin won the MACP/Elsevier prize for his programme’s upper quadrant module. The first year of his MSc was spent on Cardiff University’s sports physiotherapy programme covering subjects such as sports psychology, sports biomechanics, physiology, and strength & conditioning. His MSc research project gained peer reviewed publication (Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research).
Colin returned to Scotland with his family and was employed as a Highly Specialist Physiotherapist with BUPA and Spire Healthcare (Edinburgh and Livingston) where his focus remained in musculoskeletal outpatients and spinal rehabilitation. Colin is currently employed as Principal Spinal Physiotherapist with NHS Borders and has established Future Physio as a private practice.
