Since October 2023, Haris Kelesidis has been working at the Chania Physiotherapy Clinic. After seven years in England, he returned to Chania to apply all of the information and expertise he obtained there to the local community where he grew up and was formed.
He graduated from Coventry University’s MSc Manual Therapy degree. After completing a demanding internship at Queen Mary Hospital in Nottingham, UK, Haris became a member of IFOMPT and MACP.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy from the University of Thessaloniki in 2014 and is a member of the Panhellenic Association of Physiotherapists as well as the HCPC (Health Care Profession Council of the United Kingdom).
In England, he worked as a physiotherapist at several private institutions in the field of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. During the remaining three years of his stay, he opted to work for the NHS as a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist in primary care. Haris gained knowledge and abilities via continual professional development through seminars, evening lectures, CPD days, and chairing workshops. Finally, by mapping all of the aforementioned continuing education to the Roadmap for Successful Registration as a First Contact Physiotherapist, he was able to complete the Roadmap successfully.
Haris specialises in first-contact assessment of patients as well as mobilisation of peripheral joints and the spine. His ability to apply the ideas of the BioPsychoSocial model to Musculoskeletal Diseases is also a strong suit of his.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, going for hiking getaways, spending time with friends and playing Oud for inspiration and relaxation.
