Luke Carter

Luke qualified from the University of Brighton in 1997 with an honours degree in Physiotherapy. During the earlier part of his career, Luke worked as a clinical specialist within the NHS before moving into private practice. He has been working at Sportswise for over ten years and enjoys being part of a multidisciplinary team of experienced clinicians in a modern clinic.

Luke has extensive experience in the treatment of all musculoskeletal disorders and injuries but has a special interest in the management of running and football injuries, Low Back Pain, Thoracic Pain and Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

We asked Luke about his work and life outside the work environment:
Which aspects of physiotherapy interest you especially?
I have a special interest in the management of running and football injuries, Low Back Pain, Thoracic Pain and Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

What are your sporting interests?
I am a keen runner and have taken part in seventeen marathons and counting! A high point for me was completing the Coastal trail series 7 marathons in 7 months challenge. Football has also been a big part of my life and am an avid West Ham fan for my sins!

What attracted you to Eastbourne and working at Sportswise?
I studied for my Physiotherapy degree here at the University of Brighton and felt at home in Eastbourne. I also met my wife on the same course so we decided to settle here. I knew of Sportswise and its excellent reputation and pestered them until they gave me a job! That was over ten years ago so I know that I made a good choice!

What do you like doing when you are not working?
My young children keep me on my toes and we love spending time on the Downs. I really enjoy taking part in trail marathons. It’s a good excuse to travel and see the amazing countryside that we have here in the UK.
