Luca believes that the time he invests in the assessment phase with his patients makes him stand out as a physio. Luca approaches the patient’s problem by looking at the big picture so he can understand the root cause of their pain.
Luca’s treatments typically involve a broad-reaching approach and include joint mobilisation, manipulation, medical acupuncture, soft tissue traction and muscle strengthening to relieve pain and restore balance in your body. Luca’s experience treating amateur and professional athletes means he’s able to give patients a quick and accurate solution to high-level sports-related issues as well as people suffering day-to-day problems.

Luca completed an honours degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Trieste (Italy) in 2010. After completing his studies he worked in one of the most reputed private rehabilitation clinics in Trieste, as well as in the National Health Service. In his role in the clinic in Trieste, Luca had the opportunity to treat a wide range of patients and he became Team Lead Physiotherapist.
At the same time as working in the clinic, Luca worked as a self-employed physio in two other private clinics. He was part of a multidisciplinary team of doctors specialising in urogenital and orthopaedic rehabilitation, in metabolic bone diseases and osteoporosis, in sports medicine and rheumatology.
A huge sports fan in his own right, Luca has worked with lots of professional and amateur sports associations as a physiotherapist as well as an adviser to sports trainers. In his time he has treated runners, football players, tennis players, rugby players, canoeists, and people doing yoga, Pilates and karate. He also teaches Tai Chi.
Luca is a warm, kind person with a professional manner. He was very reassuring when I was worried about my health and he took time to explain my condition to me which made me feel more at ease. Both the acupuncture and exercises he gave me were extremely effective and I now feel 100 times better. I highly recommend him
I recently attended a few appointments with Luca due to pain with shin splints occurred through marathon training. He treated my calves and shins with traditional physio methods including acupuncture. It was his assistance with my strength training that has made a real difference. He analysed my running technique using video analysis, which helped identify weaknesses in my posture and running gait resulting in personalised strength training exercises to aid recovery and prevent further injury. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to improve their running performance
I had some muscle problems and booked an assessment with Luca. He did a thorough job, recommended deep tissue massage for some of my issues, and over 3 more sessions he cured my immediate shoulder problem. At my first full session with him he suggested that I got one my GP and have a blood test as he thought my symptoms might indicate polymyalgia. He was right, and his ability to see the bigger picture led to prompt diagnosis and treatment. Very impressive
