Adrian Wagstaff is the lead physiotherapist, owner and clinical director at Core Body Clinic. He has a wealth of experience in sport and musculoskeletal physiotherapy and holds both a BSc in Physiotherapy and a Masters (MSc) degree in Manual and Manipulative therapy.
Adrian is also one of very few male chronic pelvic pain and prostate surgery rehabilitationphysiotherapists. He is skilled in the treatment of complex male pelvic pain and also in the rehabilitation of the pelvic floor after prostate surgery (incontinence and erectile dysfunction).
Adrian uses a very 'hands-on' approach in delivering physiotherapy and uses this in combination with sports specific rehabilitation techniques. He has worked at Manchester City FC and Wolverhampton Wonderers FC delivering physiotherapy to professional sports persons.
Having always played sport Adrian understands how frustrating pain and injury can be. He has suffered ankle sprains, cartilage tears, hamstring ruptures, quads ruptures, rotator cuff tears and a head injury - all while playing rugby. It is what got him interested in physiotherapy!
He is passionate about helping his patients and reducing their pain to promote function. He is also a great advocate of prevention and is therefore keen to help patients enhance their overall wellbeing. Adrian believes everyone should receive the same level of expertise and clinical committment afforded to the professional sports person, whatever level of activity or sports participation.
Since graduation in 2001, Adrian initially worked in the UK NHS system gaining experience through the ranks and eventually specialising in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy. He has a strong background in professional sport and private practice, both in the UK and New Zealand. His Masters degree in manipulation and manual therapy has allowed him to qualify as part of a specialist group of only a 1000 musculoskeletal physiotherapists worldwide and uses the initials MACP (Musculoskeletal association of chartered physiotherapists www.macp-web.org) after his name. The qualification signifies advanced practitioner status in the assessment and treatment of orthopaedic, sports and musculoskeletal problems.
Outside of clinical practice Adrian is a keen cyclist, wannabe olympic skiier, former rugby player (now occasional touch/shoulder barge), he plays guitar and sings in a rock band, has a love DIY and has a young family.
