Dr Alex Nieper

I am a senior Consultant in Sports and Exercise Medicine and have worked with professional athletes since 2001.

I have worked in the RFU Championship and Premiership, 5 years with UK Athletics, GB Basketball and GB Hockey and the English Institute of Sport. I was also based at the UK Sport Intensive Rehabilitation Unit. And attended European and World Championships and the Olympic Games.

During my time as club and national team doctor I was part of and have led multi-disciplinary sports medicine and sports science teams. I have organized in-house CPD programs, audited club football injuries over several seasons and participated in developing an international European Football Injury Study.
