    About Dr. Kieran Richardson (FACP), BSc (Physio), MClinPhys, FACP

    Mr. Kieran Richardson (FACP) is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, and the Director of Global Specialist Physiotherapy, a Consultancy Company of Academics, Educators, Researchers and Expert Clinicians who provide Formal Mentoring, Professional Development and Second opinion for patients.

    He is considered by many to be a World Expert in the Non-surgical management of ACL tears (and associated injuries), having overseen 1000’s of successful non-surgically managed cases around the world, including patients who’ve returned to high-level sport, and those who’s fully ruptured ligaments have anatomically healed on repeat MRI.

    He is passionate about advocating for an objective shared decision-making process for all patients, meaning all of their options are carefully explained in detail without bias.

    He has co-authored peer-reviewed literature on the ACL topic, and has participated in interprofessional discussion and scientific debate.

    He has spoken at state, national and international conferences on the ACL topic, has online course workshops for healthcare professionals and patients, and regularly runs virtual consultations for patients around the world via Zoom.

    You can purchase his courses, book a workshop, book a virtual consultation, access free resources (including videos, podcasts and articles), view successful ACL tear non-surgical management stories and much more through:
    “Obviously we can't assess the healing capacity of an ACL tear if the surgery is performed the next day, or a few weeks after the injury. We need to give the ligament and the joint a chance to heal, and assess that in a variety of ways, after the patient has been given all of their options for management.”
