Sorin-Ionut qualified in Sports Therapy with First Class Honours from the University of East London and completed his Master’s degree in Osteopathy at the University College of Osteopathy in London.
Passionate about sports and drive for success from a young age, Sorin-Ionut was competitive water-polo player competing at both national and international level for Romania for many years. Undergoing rehabilitation whilst playing water-polo professionally, he developed a more profound interest in movement, health and performance that has brought him to a professional role in sports-specific rehabilitation and injury prevention.
Having been through the process of rehabilitation, he has first-hand experience of the common barriers to recovery as well as understanding the role of the professional therapist during the recovery phase. His own setbacks as a professional athlete have helped refine his sense of purpose when helping others work through their own challenges and guiding them back to recovery. Together with his clinical reasoning, rehabilitation and osteopathic treatment skills this insight allows Sorin-Ionut to offer his patients a bespoke service to expedite their path to recovery.
Sorin-Ionut has extensive work experience within the NHS, amateur and semi-pro sport clubs (football, rugby, basketball, athletics), sports events (Brighton Marathon, London Marathon, Hackney Half Marathon, Football Aid) and is lead therapist for the National/Senior Development Squad for Brompton Swimming Club.
What I do:
What our clients say
I visited the Kennington practice following a lower back injury. I was seen by Ionut, who has treated me very professionally, understanding the nature of the injury and then applying treatments, from massage to dry needles to exercises to execute at home for improving strength and recovery. His approach was very detailed and effective, I am doing already so much better. 5 stars!!
I’ve been seeing Ionut at Kennington Osteopaths and can’t recommend his services enough!
