Mr. Andew Clements

Chartered Physiotherapist

Andrew has worked for over 25 years as a physiotherapist, initially in Australia but he moved to England in 1993 to take up a specialist post at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. Initially he was seeing difficult musculoskeletal problems but developed an interest in dizzy and off balance patients.

His interest in this area developed and he traveled to the USA to further his knowledge. He helped set up the Leicester Balance Centre initially as a pilot project, but then once its success spread he moved out of the physiotherapy department completely and now mainly sees ‘vestibular’ patients (dizziness and balance problems) at the Leicester Balance Centre and London Road Clinic. He has worked with the NHS Modernization Agency to try and improve services for people with balance problems.

It was within the Balance Centre that he first really encountered Menieres Disease and its effect on peoples’ lives. Working with Peter Rea (and other ENT colleagues) provided the opportunity to link with the Menieres Society, and from that the chance to work as a Trustee with the society (he is currently in his 2nd term as a Trustee, having worked with the Menieres Society for nearly 10 years).

Andrew additionally runs his own private practice and also lectures at several Universities including Leicester, Coventry and De Montfort (across several specialties including medicine, audiology and physiotherapy). He enjoys speaking and has spoken at many meetings and has delivered keynote lectures at national (and international) conferences, as well as teaching on many Balance Courses. Andrew is also on the board of an American charity for Romanian children, where he does voluntary work as a physiotherapist at a children’s camp each summer.
