‘If you love your job you never work a day’ as said by Mark Twain apparently. That is the fortunate position Brendan finds himself in, this helps him to strive to maintain his work:life balance he feels is one of the key factors in succeeding in good health. Realising he wasn’t to be the next David Beckham helped him focus on pursuing a life in healthcare and medicine. A degree funded by the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) opened the pathway to enter the NHS and the excellent foundations there gave him the experience and drive to help people further and start work in the private sector.
As the founder of BJA Physiotherapy in 2006, he now describes himself in the player manager role of the business. In charge of a business that is thriving whilst ensuring he still is managing a demanding and rewarding caseload is what he loves doing in his work life.
Closely linked to his work are his other passions in life: Family - Three fantastic children and his wife Katie is fellow company director, without whom he admits he would be lost! Lots of dog walking, watching sports, coaching junior football and now retired from playing football, he is playing golf when time allows!
Having qualified in 2008, I first started working as a physiotherapy assistant at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation trust, prior to securing a physiotherapy post. I completed 18 months experiencing different physiotherapy rotations, such as inpatients and community, before specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I work closely with numerous upper limb, lower limb and spinal specialists, building upon my skills, knowledge and management of a variety conditions.
I have also worked for a local national level rugby club for 5 seasons and have worked in private practice for over four years. I have most recently completed a Masters in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and strive to publish this piece of work.
Away from work I enjoy exercise and running, although I’m not sure I’m very good at it, and spending time with my husband, family and friends. I also have a little dog called Darcy, who keeps me out and about in all weathers, although she doesn’t like the rain much either!
An indispensable part of the team!
Practice Manager = accountant, secretary, receptionist, cleaner, cook, drinks maker, designer, the list could go on. As with all business owners you wear many hats and Katie suits them all!!
Previous work in Nursery Nursing and management, followed by beauty therapy employment helps with the demands of private practice. Loves helping people and always willing to assist any enquiries. When not at the clinic enjoys the simple family life, the demands of a husband and teenage children and now extended by the addition of a second dog!
Kat became a physiotherapist with the dream of working in professional rugby union. However she chose to go to university in Yorkshire and so had to convert to league!
She has been working in rugby league over the past 11 years, since qualification, along-side NHS physiotherapy, private practice and completing a Masters diploma in Advancing Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. in October this year all that hard work comes to fruition as she gets to go to the Rugby League World Cup in Australia as the Irish Team Physio!
Outside of work Kat is a keen netballer which also led to her injuring herself when she ruptured her Achilles last year - she knows what it is like to be a patient too!
Excellent! BJA saw me within a day of a cycling accident for assessment before deciding when and how to proceed with treatment. First class, returning customer and always recommend.
Mr G.T. - Shoulder Cycling Injury
What can I say? Fantastic! After suffering from sciatica for months, Brendan's treatments saw it off and I have never had a recurrence. Subsequent lower back problems since have also been seen off! The best physio I have visited without question!
Mrs S.M. - Sciatica & Back Pain
I have found Brendan's advice pre-hip operation and afterwards very helpful and encouraging. I valued his initial advice as a second opinion and was pleased I acted on it.
Mrs K.G. - Hip Surgery
Excellent service and very friendly staff.

Very friendly, caring and professional atmosphere. Excellent treatment, very positive results.
