Mike Conyers MBE Grad Dip Phys, MCSP, AACP
Mike qualified from the North London School of Physiotherapy in 1979 and honed his skills working in the NHS in London and then in Brentwood. In 1982, he began to see a few private patients at his home in Brentwood and in 1988, he left the NHS to concentrate on working in private practice full time.
Mike has an enthusiastic passion for sport, particularly cricket, and regularly attends his local gym to keep fit. He is something of a master of the after dinner speech and regularly entertains local WI groups and sports clubs (and his patients) with stories of his personal journey to becoming a physiotherapist, physiotherapy in practise and his recent escapades: Running the London Marathon, parachute jumping, climbing Kilimanjaro, fire walking and the Three Peaks challenge, all of which he did to raise money for charity.
Mike specialises in the treatment of all spinal conditions, including whiplash and headaches, and all sports injuries. He has vast experience treating patients of all ages and from all walks of life; from children to the elderly, and from sedentary office worker, to manual labourer, to top athlete. He is skilled in using manipulative techniques, mobilisation and traction, and uses electrotherapy and acupuncture for pain relief. Mike maintains close working relationships with local GPs and Orthopaedic Consultants and mutually refer patients as necessary. He strives to ensure patients are able to self-manage their condition before discharge to avoid problems recurring.
Mike regularly attends training courses to maintain his physiotherapy and acupuncture skills so that he is always up to date with current clinical practice.
