Physio+10 focuses on the journeys of trailblazing Physiotherapists and today's conversation is with Mr Glen Robbins. Glen describes his unique start in physiotherapy and how this has shaped his attitude to continuing education.
In this conversation with Glen we learn;
* the benefits of mentorship
* how he started his own educational training programs
* his take on managing high performance, young athletes with hip challenges and
* his eloquent explanation as to why he wouldn't worry so much as a new or recent graduate
Glen has been teaching postgraduate Physiotherapy courses for the past 9 years. Prior to training as a Physiotherapist, Glen worked in the fitness industry and as a trainer for gyms and sports teams. He qualified as a Physiotherapist from the University of Keele in 2005. He spent his first 2 years working for a busy MSK private clinic in Iceland, before returning to the NHS and completing his MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy at the University of Hertfordshire.
Glen has a particular interest in the lower limb and has been teaching in the areas of assessing and treating runners and assessment and treatment of the hip and knee since 2012.
