Antonio Riera Alonso
Graduated in Physiotherapy from the Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona) in 2000.
He is now Director and Senior Physiotherapist at Physiotherapy Ibiza and manages the physiotherapy services for Fraile Gym Group, the largest fitness center provider on Ibiza.
He is registered at Baleric Physioterapy Association (No. 271) and has also
completed a Postgraduate in Osteopathy at ECO Barcelona (2004) and Master in
Sports and Health at UCA University (2011).
He annually attends courses and international conferences to update his
knowledge and offer the latest techniques available.
My physiotherapy formation years occurred in London, where I graduated with First Class BSc (Hons) from University of East London in 2012 and afterwards completed several postgraduate courses such as Osteopathic Techniques for Physiotherapists, Acupuncture, Dry Needling, to name a few.
I have worked within the musculoskeletal departments of the British National Health Service (NHS) and private physiotherapy sectors alongside some of the best physiotherapists in London.
My special interest lies with sport injuries, such as running, martial arts and swimming. Having a systematic approach to assessing patients movement patterns, joint, nerve and soft-tissue conditions allows me to diagnose and implement bespoke treatment plans with a wide variety of treatments.
I am registered with the Chartered society of Physiotherapists in England and the Baleric Physioterapy College in Spain.
