George is a keen sportsman who is interested in Rugby, Football, Athletics and Weight Lifting. He has played rugby since a young age and has had the opportunity to perform at the Elite level by representing Hampshire and London Irish. Due to George's career in rugby he has been subjected to numerous injuries and understands the physical and psychological implications an injury can have on an individual whether that being in a sporting or occupational environment.
The knowledge George has experienced in his sports therapy and rugby career has contributed to him believing that everyone deserves the same standard of treatment and rehabilitation know matter their ability, whether that being from the Elite Athlete to the Amateur athlete, young or old.
