About John Forde

I’ve been working as a Physiotherapist at Katie Bell since 2019. I’ve helped thousands of clients move better, feel better and live better through my skills of assessment, diagnosis, treatment & rehabilitation. My aim as a physiotherapist is to not only understand your physical pain, but also recognise how your pain affects you psychologically and socially in order to develop an effective treatment plan.

As a lover of exercise and sport myself, it brings me great satisfaction to help people return to their sports and activities to the best of their ability. The Katie Bell clinic has a sense of community in which every person is a part of, where visitors are seen more as friends than clients.

Since graduating, I am keen to pursue many areas of health & fitness. These interests have encouraged me to complete Pilates, acupuncture, shockwave therapy and sports massage courses. My growing interests are repairing chronic pain, and vestibular physiotherapy.

As a kid I wanted to be a helicopter pilot in the army, most likely due to playing too much Call of Duty on my Xbox! My hidden talent is that the more I play & practice golf, the worse I get!
