About Paul Hattam
Paul is a physiotherapist based in private practice in Sheffield, UK. He has many years of clinical experience having also worked in the NHS in an advanced practitioner role. He completed his MSc in 2002 having studied the effectiveness of orthopaedic triage by physiotherapists.
The uncertainty surrounding some aspects of clinical examination led him to explore this further, and with co-author Alison Smeatham, the resulting book ‘Special Tests – an evidence-based guide for clinicians’, was published by Elsevier in 2010. He retains a keen interest in advanced practice and is module leader for the Society’s injection therapy and Special Tests modules.
