Who Am I?

My name is Stephen Kane, and I’m a Manual Handling Trainer and People Moving People Trainer for OFI. I’ve been working with OFI since October 2023.

My Professional Background

As a physiotherapist, my journey began with a degree in Sports and Exercise Science, during which I delved into biomechanics and rehabilitation. My fascination with the intricate science of movement led me to pursue a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy. Alongside my studies, I earned a Diploma in Sports Massage, which deepened my understanding of anatomy.
