Alexander Pouros BSc (Hons.) - Registered Osteopath

alex pourosAlexander Pouros, company director of Momentum Healthcare in Thanet, Kent, has background from the fitness industry when he first qualified with a diploma in fitness instruction and sports therapy in 2002, initially working in GYMs as an instructor and personal trainer. 2 years later he decided to train as an Osteopath to allow him to develop his skills and understanding in treating a number of musculo-skeletal complaints and completed the 5 year degree program 2009.

Over the course of the last 17 years Alex has developed his understanding in a number of different areas. Initially including core stability training and nutrition and weight management during his fitness career as a personal trainer, as well as treating sports injuries and soft tissue injuries in his early career as a sports therapist. His training in Osteopathic medicine developed his skills as a therapist and allowed him to progress a better understanding on how the body works and how it becomes injured, improving his treatment practices in addressing a wide range of complaints from spinal pain and sports injuries to joint pain and repetitive strain injuries. During his training he continued to practice as a sports therapist within the Thanet area (Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Margate), under the clinic name of Alexander Pouros. It was in 2012 that Alexander Pouros became The Spine and Sports Injury Clinic (SSi).

Throughout his career he developed in a number of roles, being pitch side for 1st Team Whitstable football club as the physical therapist, supporting the Herne Bay Race For Life event by providing sports massage and injury advice, and supporting the International Volleyball Margate Masters by providing sports massage and injury first aid and advice. He has also continued to develop a range of skills including; training in electrotherapy to allow the delivery of therapeutic ultrasound, completing courses in modern acupuncture providing dry needling, sports taping courses so that sports taping can be used to aid recovery and allow sports people to return to activity that bit quicker.

After Alex had been working with Monique Boorman in various capacities for a number of years it was clear they both shared similar views on how to deliver high level patient care, as well as holding similar views on the ethical delivery of treatment. Now that they’d both developed successful clinical practices within the Thanet area, combining forces to be able to draw on each others strengths and develop a bigger and better practice is what led to this exciting new chapter in their careers. In October 2019 Momentum Healthcare began, based on excellent patient care, expert diagnostic ability, and clear and detailed rehabilitation plans.
