Leroy qualified from The University of Auckland, New Zealand in 2010 with an honours degree in Physiotherapy. He has worked in Australia for most of his career to date, before moving to London where he managed a busy musculoskeletal patient caseload with the Crystal Palace Physiotherapy Group for the past three years.

New Zealand trained Physiotherapists are highly regarded worldwide due to their strong reputation for excellent manual therapy skills as physiotherapists, and Leroy exemplifies this with his detailed approach to patient care. 

Exercise prescription including analysis of Power lifting is a strong component of his approach to rehabilitation, and he implements this across the spectrum of rehabilitation from office workers to athletes and sports specific rehabilitation.

Leroy uses his clinical Pilates training with back pain patients.

Leroy works Monday to Friday at Physiofusion.
