Dominic arrived in the UK in April 2001 and has spent the last 8 years working in private practices and hospitals in the London area. As a keen sports man himself his interest lead him to want to work with sports injuries and Dominic is currently in his third year of a Master's degree in Sports Physiotherapy.
He has an interest in the management of musculoskeletal injuries in the active population but also in more specialist areas of sport and is a team physiotherapist for a football club on a part-time basis. His ambition is to work in the professional sport arena full-time, so what better place to demonstrate his talents than here at Thinq Fitness.

Abduction and extension:
It is really easy to start doing these exercises during the day without too much fuss, so you may be tempted to be doing them all day long. It is important not do too many squats during the day as your body will need to adapt to the strains on your muscles and joints. Its great that you may be feeling enthusiastic about getting into it but beware you don't cause yourself an injury, otherwise you'll making a trip to the physio and I know you don't want to do that!
