Mr Stuart  Denton

Mr Stuart Denton

Physiotherapist

Studied physiotherapy at the University of Nottingham and graduated in 2020. Following placement experiences in inpatient orthopedics, falls and frailty, hands burns and plastics I was aware musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapy was where I wanted to specialise. Therefore, I began working in outpatient MSK within the NHS in the UK after graduating. A job role that allowed me to be involved with management of an array of acute to chronic conditions, attend regular development courses from world leading experts and enjoy the rehabilitation journey of so many services users from injury to fulfilment of life. Additionally, I worked with club and county rugby sides for pitch side and clinic-based rehab. Deeper interest in rugby and diverse martial arts both striking and grappling, yet willing to give all sports a go. View details »
