Our Story

Ruben Cordeiro

Rúben graduated from CESPU, Portugal in 2013, acquiring a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy. Since then he has worked within the sport, musculoskeletal and orthopaedic physiotherapy field.

In 2016 Ruben acquired a Master’s degree of Osteopathy from the Madrid School of Osteopathy. This has allowed him to adopt a more manual approach to his treatments which are central to his clinical work.

His usual treatment strategies involve manual therapy and dry-needling incorporated with proprioceptive stretching and strengthening exercises. Ruben always takes a holistic approach to address not only the injury but the causal factors to avoid re-injury in the long-term.

Ruben has also completed post graduate courses in Sports Osteopathy, Trigger Point Therapy and Dry needling, Acupuncture, Shockwave therapy and Kinesiotaping.

Chris Barber Physiotherapist

Chris Barber is one of South East London and Kent’s most experienced physiotherapists. Chris graduated from Kings College London in 1996 with a Batchelor of Science Degree with Honours and since then he has attained post-graduate qualifications in dry needling / Gunn-IMS acupuncture and AposHealth. During his career Chris has been taught by some of the most highly regarded international experts in Physiotherapy, Pain Science and Sports Medicine.

Chris has become the ‘go-to’ physiotherapist for complex aches and pains, spinal problems and sports injuries. His areas of special interest include running injuries, chronic spinal and nerve pain and knee arthritis. Chris helps patients of all ages and abilities overcome problems they have previously been told to just live with avoiding drugs and surgery wherever possible.

Chris founded Advanced Physiotherapy in 2005 to service the needs of patients living with fear and pain who haven’t got better due to lacking anyone involved in their care truly listening to their problems, not being examined properly, not having effective hands-on treatment or not doing adequate rehabilitation for their condition. Chris and his team will help you move, feel and perform better where treatment has failed elsewhere.
