Jose graduated in Podiatry from Valencia University in Spain in 2013. After University he started working on private practice in Valencia but never stopped studying and developing new skills, especially in the field of biomechanics, which Jose is very passionate about. He just completed his MsC in Paediatrics and is already thinking about what he can learn next.
Jose has always been closely related to sports. He played basketball in Spain for 20 years, but recently found his passion for running. His love for sports and a healthy lifestyle lead him to focus his career on helping people overcome injuries that may keep them from enjoying this lifestyle.
Outside of work, Jose enjoys practicing any kind of outdoor sport, watching sports, and even talking about sport. He is a keen runner and loves exploring new places so he is looking forward to any recommendations.
