Despite football being the initial inspiration it is not only football and sports related pathology that his interest lies but also those in the general population whether sporting or otherwise. With a strong believe in that it is all about figuring out the mechanism of an injury related to that tissues stress and the basic principles apply similarly to a professional athlete or a weekend dog walker despite the actual treatments varying.
