Why did Stathis become a physiotherapist?
Stathis has a strong passion for helping people in any capacity - especially helping his patients achieve their goals.
"Whether that be for someone to be pain free or to run a marathon. Each person's goal is their whole world and helping them achieve that goal means the world to me."
