Chris Blackledge

Chartered Physiotherapist

I am a clinician with over 20 years experience in helping people recover from their injuries.

My journey began with the British Army specialising in the rehabilitation of injured soldiers, serving within the UK and overseas. This was complemented by gaining a Degree in Sports Rehabilitation at St Marys College, London. Having served a full career within the military, I took the opportunity to study on the MSc 2-year full time degree course in Physiotherapy at the University of Essex.

On qualifying as a junior physiotherapist, I spent the next four and a half years with Allied Health Professionals Suffolk, gaining invaluable experience treating and supporting an array of NHS patients with simple muscle injuries to complex long term conditions. In 2017, I took up my current role employed as a full time senior physiotherapist at Colchester garrison, back with the military but this time as a civilian. Although this is a very challenging role, I find it extremely rewarding supporting our armed forces.

I enjoy working with elite athletes from all walks of life and since 2013, I have been one of four physiotherapists supporting the senior team at Colchester Rugby Football Club during training nights and match days. I manage a range of injuries, predominately through strength and conditioning, but also Pilates based exercises, sports massage and acupuncture.

I feel that my diverse experience has given me an invaluable foundation to provide patients with the support they need to make a full recovery.

I will aim to provide a good understanding of the underlying cause of your condition. Enabling you to do little things to help yourself, empowering you to move better, so that you can achieve a better quality of live.

If you would like to book an appointment with me at Reflex-18, I am available in clinic on Saturday mornings using the online booking system or calling the clinic.
