Andrew McLafferty

Solve your pain problem

Andrew graduated to practice physiotherapy with an MSc in 2007, having previously completed a BSc in Physiology & Sports Science at Glasgow University. He has worked extensively in the NHS in both large teaching hospitals and health centres throughout Glasgow, initially gaining experience in a variety of areas including orthopaedics, burns and plastics and the Glasgow Weight Management Service. This skill mix has contributed to his expertise in individualising treatment and rehab to suit any client at any age or stage.

Andrew took on a specialist physiotherapy musculoskeletal role in 2014. In addition to assessing and treating patients within his NHS role, Andrew leads lower limb rehab classes for clients post trauma, surgery or pain. He has excellent skills in sports-specific rehabilitation - combining his physio and sports science background. He also regularly delivers training to GP colleagues, organises clinical conferences and is involved in helping physios deliver quality, evidence-based practice as part of a Practice Development team. This keeps him immersed in current research and how this informs clinical practice.

As someone who regularly runs, swims and goes to the gym, Andrew is really interested in health promotion, particularly in finding ways for individuals to enjoy being physically active whatever their pain or injury issue. He is committed to working alongside clients to help them identify ways to improve their function, and won’t stop until they have achieved their desired goals - whether that be an ultra marathon or a walk round the park! He is a member of the CSP and is HCPC recognised.
