Andrew McCauley MSc BSc CSCS HCPC MCSP
This Irish maverick is at the top of his game, with a high-end educational profile to match. He is a sports scientist, sports medicine practitioner, senior NHS physiotherapist and sports and conditioning leader who trains other physios in the UK. He speaks different the languages of scientists, fitness trainers and clinicians, but is also heavily influenced by alternative therapies thanks to his upbringing.
He draws inspiration from thought-leaders like Bruce Lee, who mixed new thought with thousand-year-old ideas, who balanced yin with yang, who developed the body and the mind to bring about behavioural change.
“All fixed, set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability – the truth is outside of all fixed patterns. As you think, so shall you become.” Bruce Lee.
Andrew moved to Cornwall in 2009. Today he is a family guy: he’s married, with 3 young children. He set up ProCare in September 2014, with a clinic inside Tremough Campus gym, then moved into his own premises at Jubilee Wharf in June 2015.
Andrew worked in London as a physiotherapist for five years (2005-2009) including St Bartholomew's Hospital and Royal London Hospital (part of Tower Hamlets Trust). When he’s not at the ProCare clinic he works as an NHS Extended Scope Practitioner (a senior clinician with advanced assessment skills), specialising in hips, knees and shoulders, and working closely with surgeons, physiotherapists and GPs.
Andrew is very passionate about education and runs a course for physiotherapists called 'Unravelling Strength & Conditioning' for Therapists'. http://www.heseminars.com/App_Uploads/Unravelling%20Strength%20&%20Conditioning%20for%20Therapists%20flyer.pdf
He also organises a sports medicine conference twice a year in Cornwall for clinicans in the south west to share ideas and education.
