Since arriving at Melwood during the 2005-06 campaign as part of the physiotherapy team, Chris has progressed from reserve-team physiotherapist to his current role of overseeing the rehabilitation of medium to long-term injuries with the first team.
He says: "I have had an interest in injury prevention for a number of years and have just completed a research project into the most effective injury prevention strategies utilised in soccer as part of my Masters degree.
"Alongside our sports science department, we are now in the process of implementing these strategies at the club through a combination of team-based exercise programs which take place before training, and individualised interventions which target risk factors and weak areas after training."
Prior to his move to Liverpool, Chris graduated from the University of Bradford in 2000 and worked in the NHS and private practice before going on to work in the academies of both Manchester City Football Club and Leeds United Football Club.
In recent years he has continued his professional development with a Masters degree in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, which he completed in April 2010.
