I made my debut for Luton Town Football Club aged 17 and went on to enjoy twelve years as a professional footballer. Scoring the winning penalty to win the Under 18 European Championships for Ireland in 1998 was my greatest achievement but for all the great highs there were also low points.
On the downside I was also a regular on the treatment table – sadly injuries went hand in hand with my career. In total I had to undergo 10 surgical procedures ranging from having my ankle complex rebuilt to various knee surgeries and several broken legs. I’ve always had an optimistic outlook and it was during those long periods on the sidelines that my fascination with physiotherapy, health and wellbeing began to grow. Rehabilitation has ben a massive part of my life not only as a physiotherapist but as a professional and amateur sportsperson also.
I qualified as a level 3 reps (register of exercise professionals) personal trainer at the back end of my football career before making the transition into personal training and strength and conditioning coaching before going on to study BSc Physiotherapy at the University of Salford.
Some of the physiotherapists who treated me were brilliant, others not so, but my experiences under their care ended up being the driving force behind my decision to re-train as a physiotherapist in 2006.
With the support of the Professional Football Association (PFA) I gained a BSc Honours Degree in Physiotherapy.
Since graduating I have gained a wealth of experience in the health and fitness industry. In the last ten years I have worked at several private health clubs and gyms and also spent time working in the NHS in a neurological unit as a physiotherapy assistant. Off the back of this I was offered a job in the private sector within one of the UKs leading physiotherapy companies.
I started Liam George Physiotherapy in 2013 with the aim of providing the highest possible level of healthcare accessible to everyone. My aim is to provide my clients with my expertise which, I continue to develop utilising my network in professional sport and also private healthcare. Providing my clients with a variety of treatment strategies harnessed from the highest levels of healthcare and sport.
