Further information

My approach

I combine bespoke manual therapy, reformer Pilates and functional strength training to eliminate pain and cure the underlying cause of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms.

My approach is based on the latest industry-leading and science-based injury management.

My expertise

I completed my Physiotherapy training in London in 2003, before travelling to Australia to complete further specialist training in musculoskeletal dysfunction and sports injuries.

There I completed my MSc at one of the best Universities in the world, Queensland University in Brisbane, Australia with a specialisation in spinal manipulation and core stability training. By collaborating with some of the world's leading experts in physiotherapy, I gained specialist knowledge in the management of musculoskeletal injuries.

Returning to the UK

After returning to the UK, I have gained further experience by treating a huge variety of conditions. This ranges from both elite sports teams and individuals, dancers, runners and cyclists, to patients suffering with lower back pain, neck pain and office-based postural dysfunctions.

Moving to Dulwich

I have lived in the Dulwich/Herne Hill area for the past 15 years, initially moving to the area to take on the position of Sports Physiotherapist for the Dulwich College rugby team, while working for ESPH. This included the management of their injuries before games, pitch side cover and travelling with the team. Many of the boys in the first team went on to play for Saracens and England at senior level.

Working at Dulwich College

While working at Dulwich College, I was also in charge of running the sports injury centre at the Dulwich Sports Club treating a variety of conditions linked to the boys' sporting injuries. My role also included running the Pilates classes for many of the club members and local residents.

Incorporating Physiotherapy and machine-based Pilates

It was after this great experience that I decided to combine my advanced physiotherapy skills gained in Australia with Pilates equipment, to create a more holistic approach. By merging the benefits of Pilates equipment training, advanced manual therapy, acupuncture and biomechanical corrections, I soon realised the powerful effects these had on injury management. 

Consulting for Six Physio

I have been a consultant physiotherapist at Six Physio in the city for a number of years, and have been involved in the training of their physiotherapist, as well as the management of complex musculoskeletal injuries with some of the country's best consultants and specialists.

By working at the top of the sports and outpatients physiotherapy environment, I have gained specialised knowledge and understanding in how to manage injuries and provide the necessary tools for patients to manage their injuries.

Six Physio was voted by The Sunday Times Top 100 Small Companies for a number of years, and I am proud to have been a part of this great adventure and a key support in their rise to the top of the profession.

The opening of SC Physiotherapy

After moving from Dulwich to Herne Hill in 2019, I decided to open up SC Physiotherapy (Solomon Canevaro Physiotherapy) to be able to offer my expertise and specialised skills to both Dulwich and Herne Hill residents, whilst still consulting out of Six Physio in the City.

I have created a fully functioning Pilates equipment/physiotherapy treatment room in the hearth of North Dulwich/Herne Hill.

My method

 I start with an in-depth MOT and physical screening of each patient to understand what their biomechanical dysfunctions are, by using the latest video analysis technology. This allows me to identify areas of reduced strength and mobility, which may be causing overload on the body's tissues.

The actual treatment

I will then combine great manual therapy work, functional strength training and reformer Pilates to ensure the problem is cured. I will provide you with a tailored, bespoke exercise programme to ensure you maintain the necessary strength and mobility to keep the tissue in good health.

What causes an injury

Most injuries are caused by a combination of reduced mobility and decreased strength.

The solution for curing most injuries is the identification of which parts of your body need to increase flexibility (The Stiff Parts) and the parts of your body which need to get stronger (The Bendy Bits).
