Alan is a senior physiotherapist at Terrace Physio Plus, having established the business 15 years ago. He enjoys helping people from all walks of life and all ages, particularly enjoying treating challenging cases of chronic pain. He also has extra training in Acupuncture and uses this in many of his treatments, as this form of treatment (along with other Chinese treatment options) compliments the hands-on treatment and exercise used in physiotherapy.
