Richard Linley

Physiotherapist – Grafton Lab

Education:
Richard graduated with a masters in physiotherapy from the University of Middlesbrough in the UK, in 2009. He has attended a multitude of courses, with a key interest in surgical management and biomechanical analysis. 

Experience:
Richard worked in one of the largest acute care hospitals in Europe. This provided him with invaluable experience treating major trauma patients. Spending time working in the hospital setting gave him experience treating a wide variety of patient groups, and ultilises this experience to tailor his treatment approach to meet your needs. He also worked with rugby teams, football teams and some of UK’s elite triathletes. Since moving to New Zealand, Rich gained experience working with three western rugby teams, in acute and chronic care as well as injury prevention strategies. He has developed a wide scope of practice and can utilise this to ensure results, whatever your activity.

Professional views and special interests:
Richard is a firm believer in patient empowerment and will impart a deep understanding of your injury and how best to manage it. He couples this with an exceptional standard of manual therapy. Having learnt from some of the top surgeons in the UK, Rich leads his field in methods used to assess and treat hip dysfunction. Shoulder, back and neck injuries are also of high interest to Rich.

Outside of the Lab:
Rich loves getting outdoors. He played national level football from an early age and still loves to get out for a game of 5 a side. Rich enjoyes the abundance of epic mountain biking trails New Zealand has to offer. In the winter you’ll likely find him smashing on his snowboard. Rich also loves exploring the world. He’s travelled extensively through Southeast Asia, South and Central America, India and Europe.
