Herbert’s treatment philosophy is to increase resilience in his patients, through education and exercise not only to recover from injury but to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Herbert practices what he preaches and in his spare time you’ll find him out on the road running or cycling, on his surfboard catching some waves, in the boxing gym, or lifting some heavy weights! He has a marathon PB of 2.55 and an Ironman time of 11.22 but these days he sticks to much shorter, less time intensive events!
