Paul Perkins – Physiotherapy Leeds
Paul qualified as a chartered physiotherapist in 2007 graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University. After completing placements in various Physiotherapy disciplines, Paul was given the opportunity to complete an elective placement with Leeds United Football Club. As an active young man and avid Leeds United supporter this seemed a perfect match. Following this Paul decided to specialise in musculoskeletal and sporting injuries. After graduating Paul gained part time employment at LUFC working with the academy, providing Physiotherapy care and pitch-side cover for matches. Paul also gained experience working with Leeds United Ladies (juniors).
After 6 months at LUFC Paul was taken on full-time as Head Academy Physiotherapist, overseeing the care of Academy (U9s-U18s) players and coordinating part time Physiotherapy staff. This gave him insight into working on a daily basis with athletes and coaches in an elite set up. Here he worked with players such as Fabien Delph (Manchester City), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur) and Jonny Howson (Middlesbrough FC).
In 2008 after 12 months with the academy Paul was promoted to Assistant First Team Physiotherapist. Highlights here include promotion to the Championship from League 1 and the FA Cup 3rd round win against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Working with the first team enabled Paul to build professional relationships with some of the leading consultants, care providers and medical suppliers in the country, contacts which he is able to draw upon within his private practice, offering an invaluable service to his clients.
Paul Perkins Physiotherapy was founded in 2013. Paul stepped down from a full-time role at Leeds United in 2014 to focus on private practice.
Since 2014 Paul has worked in private practice, treating a wide range of patients. During this time Paul has trained in Physio lead Yoga, Pilates and acupuncture. In 2014 Paul also joined the physiotherapy team at the Spire hospital, where he currently holds a part time position.
