Emerson Fernandez

Emerson has been working as a Musculoskeletal sports Physiotherapist since completing his BSc (Hons) in 2005, specialising in sports and fitness injuries. 

Emerson has worked in GP practices, gyms, and accident & emergency (where he would see all manner of weird and wonderful injuries – just ask) and privately with athletes (footballers, rugby players, crossFitters, cyclists, runners, weight lifters), gymnasts and dancers. 

He now combines a specialist NHS role which includes diagnostic ultrasound and corticosteroid injections with running XPhysio.

Emerson is a passionate therapist with background in football, strength & conditioning, CrossFit and BJJ which allows him to rehabilitate injury to return-to-play with an evidence-based approach and in the safest, most efficient way possible. 

He continues to study at Masters level and offers diagnostic ultrasound assessment (PGCert MSK sonography), injection therapy, spinal manipulations, advanced soft tissue techniques including IASTM, joint mobilisations and acupuncture. 

I continue to study advanced neuro-musculoskeletal practice at Masters level.
