Jack Chew BSc, MCSP is a physiotherapist who has pursued a specialism in musculoskeletal and sports medicine since he qualified from the University of Nottingham in 2010. Following a brief but insightful stint working in Kent under the mentorship of Mike Stewart, Jack moved efficiently through the ranks of an innovative, NHS commissioned, social enterprise service in Nottingham City. Here he extended his clinical skills to involve medical triage, imaging requisition and injection therapy, before moving to Manchester where he co-founded the innovative Chews Health network.
Since 2013, Jack and his associates at Chews Health have provided ‘in-house’ second-opinion consultancy for sports teams and independent athletes across the north-west. Jack’s passion for developing others led him to produce the online educational platform ‘The Physio Matters Podcast’ which, with the help of a core team, has changed the face (and voice!) of musculoskeletal and sports medicine education. With an average monthly listenership of 25,000, The Physio Matters Podcast and its affiliated projects continue to cover the toughest topics for the betterment of clinicians, their patients and, therefore, society.
Alongside his managerial commitments to Chews Health and Physio Matters, Jack holds a part-time extended scope practitioner (ESP) position with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent partnership NHS trust as part of their award winning Integrated Physiotherapy Orthopaedic Pain Service (IPOPS). When invited, and time allows, Jack is a visiting lecturer at the University of Nottingham and hosts various presentations and debates discussing his areas of special interest which include: critical thinking, the mechanisms of intervention effect, the language of pain and perhaps most controversially, his ‘Excuse based practice’ workshop in which his ambition to promote critical but balanced reasoning is most flamboyantly demonstrated!
