Doug Powell (MCSP) Chartered Physiotherapist

Doug Powell has found an alternative to retirement by working after people kept coming to him for physiotherapy.

The trained health professional relocated to Abergavenny area from the Midlands last year after specialising in sports therapy/physiotherapy with the intention of retiring. But word of mouth recommendations got the better of him and after carrying out treatments on an ad hoc basis, he decided to return to the profession he know well.

Mr Powell originally retrained as a remedial/sports manipulative therapy after spending many years in the Royal Navy where he was a physical training instructor. He set about forming a sports injury clinic, which after it became successful was head-hunted and transferred to a doctors surgery where he spent the last decade, registering with the HPC as a physiotherapist and then chartered physiotherapist.

His expertise is that of a hands on therapist, which combines deep and superficial soft tissue massage, orthopaedic massage and joint mobilisations and manipulations.
