Luke acquired the directorship of Noigroup in March 2021 from the founders David Butler and Juliet Gore. His physiotherapy journey began with a degree from The University of Melbourne, Australia, followed by a move into clinical practice in New York. In NYC, Luke co-founded New York Sports Medicine which Orthology later acquired.
Still one of New York City’s most prominent physical therapists, Luke’s extensive experience in the management of acute and chronic pain and sports injuries demands that he travel extensively to manage professional and Olympic athletes, as well as touring performing arts/dance company members. He currently serves as a consultant with the NBA League as well as European soccer professional teams. Luke is also affiliated with the clinical education programs of Columbia University and Touro College.
Luke practices a ‘hands-on’ approach combining his advanced manual skills with neuromuscular/exercise and education. He has a strong belief that education is fundamental in optimising patient recovery and performance. He has taught advanced skills courses in Manual Therapy internationally since 2004 and has been on the NOI faculty since 2015.
He is currently involved in clinical research focused on injury management and is developing guidelines for injury prevention in sports medicine and in the workplace.
