Craig Hayle – Physiotherapist/Director BSc (Hons) Pg Dip (Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy) MMACP HCPC MCSP OCPPP

“It sounds obvious, but my main aim is always to make the most accurate clinical diagnosis possible. I want every client to leave their first session knowing what’s wrong, and how best to manage their condition in the long-term.

It’s essential that patients feel empowered to support their own wellbeing. So I create personalised rehab programmes they can continue at home to do exactly that.”

After qualifying at the University of Bradford in 1997, Craig worked as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist for the NHS and in the private sector. He went on to complete a postgrad diploma in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy at the University of Brighton and joined the manipulative association of physiotherapists.

Craig uses a range of manual therapy, manipulation and soft-tissue techniques to help with pain, joint dysfunction and posture conditions.

As a clinical specialist physiotherapist, he’s worked closely with orthopaedic consultants to assess, investigate and manage patients with spinal and hip conditions. As well as his role at Bodysym, he works with GPs to assess and manage patients with acute and ongoing orthopaedic conditions.
