A profile image of Dr Leon Creaney
Sport and Exercise Medicine Consultant

I specialise in sport and exercise medicine (SEM) with a sub-speciality interest in musculoskeletal medicine. I qualified from the University of Sheffield in 2001 and became a consultant on the GMC specialist register in 2009. I have held NHS consultant posts in Sheffield, Manchester, Warrington and University Hospital Birmingham.

Since qualifying as a consultant 10 years ago, I have worked in elite sport for British Athletics as a team doctor every year and have also developed an interest in football medicine, having run a football medicine clinic for Spire Perform at Spire Manchester and St.George’s Park where I took the role of clinical governance lead. I continue to provide match day support for Shrewsbury Town F.C.

I have a particular interest in lower back pain, sports injuries and performance medicine. For the last 10 years I have been treating 2,000 private patients per year with musculoskeletal pain and injuries from head to toe (neck, shoulder, back, hip and groin, thigh, knee, leg, foot and ankle).
