Jason is an alumnus of the University of Teesside and graduated with First-Class Honours in Physiotherapy in 1995.
It was an achievement made all the more laudable by his being the only student among his peers to be awarded a First that year, while simultaneously capturing the Valerie Lord Prize for his undergraduate research dissertation, “Physiotherapists’ Knowledge Level of HIV and AIDS’.
Jason gained his initial post-graduate experience locally at Lincoln County Hospital acquiring expertise in Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Intensive Care, General and Respiratory Medicine, Rheumatology and Neurology before choosing to specialise in Musculoskeletal Outpatients and Sports Injuries.
Following promotion to senior level in the NHS and having gained a postgraduate qualification in One-to-One Personal Training, Jason has since worked extensively throughout the UK in a diversified range of freelance consultancy roles in the public, private, legal, sporting professional, wheelchair services, educational, and military sectors.
Lakeside Physiotherapy was created by Jason in 2006 in order to provide a different and more exclusive treatment experience for independent clients in Lincoln. An environment in which a classical ‘hands-on’ model of therapy could be combined with evidence-based practise, education, and client empowerment to expedite recovery, achieve optimal results, and prevent recurrence.
Jason gained a Masters Degree in Health Ergonomics from the University of Derby in 2010. Now, with over a decade worth of experience in Occupational Health and Ergonomics, he provides specialist assessment, management and advice regarding prevention of injury that leads to pain, disability and lost productivity in the workplace.
Jason’s skills are widely acknowledged in the specialist field of Health Ergonomics and in high-intensity VDU-graphical focused environments in particular. He was chosen by Her Majesty’s Land Registry to assist with their three-year transition to a fully-digital paperless environment, while supporting their employees with ergonomic assessment and advice in their thirteen offices across England and Wales. As sole practitioner/assessor throughout the contract Jason achieved a 100% satisfaction rate for all three years of the programme. Jason also has elite level 'Registered Membership' status of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE).
Finally, Jason has basic training in Humanistic Counselling Practise at BA (Hons) level through the University of Nottingham, and has historically appeared as guest speaker in Pathophysiology on the undergraduate BSc (Hons) Nursing programme at the University of Lincoln.
