Marco qualified in Physiotherapy in 2009 from the University of Coruna, Spain. He has been working between Spain and England in both the NHS and private sectors within different areas of physiotherapy, including musculoskeletal, orthopaedics, neurology and within the local community. Marco has also completed further Physiotherapy training within musculoskeletal related topics such as neurodynamics, manual therapy, chronic pain relief and rehabilitation.

Recently he finished his part-time Master’s abroad in Osteopathic Manual Therapy for Physiotherapists.

Marco uses a well thought out combination of  “hands-on” manual therapy and exercises depending on each person’s needs.

“The key is to find the real cause of the problem and not just the symptoms if the diagnosis is right then the chances of a long term successful treatment will exponentially increase. My approach is to combine knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathology from the combination of all systems of the body due to its multiple connections that you could not even imagine”.

“I will use all my effort, time and knowledge to try to help to solve your problem, not just your symptoms. But on top of that, if you really want to improve you will also need to be actively involved in the treatment as lifestyle changes are very important in the recovery”
