Director and Co-founder
Nigel Mann is one of the directors and co-founders of The JSSC. Born in Jersey and educated at Victoria College, he left Jersey to study to become a physiotherapist at Leeds Met University in 1995.
Nigel has had a very varied career working in lots of different hospital settings including rheumatology, neurology, cardiothoracic, palliative care and occupational health. His interests over the years have ultimately led to Nigel specialising in musculoskeletal (bone and joint) conditions.
When he is not running the business with Lisa, hands on manual therapy, looking after yourself and strength exercises play a large role in Nigel’s clinical practice. In 2011, he completed his Certificate in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy at Curtain University in Perth Australia. This led to a eureka moment as he was introduced to the Toby Hall, Gwen Jull and Dean Watson and their approaches to headaches and migraines. Nigel continues to develop this effective and gentle approach and runs a headache clinic.
Nigel’s pain management interests have grown from exposure to such excellent physios as Louis Gifford, Mick Thacker, Lorimer Moseley and David Butler.
Nigel also has a special interest in rheumatology, pain management, acupuncture and headaches after working at the Regional Rheumatology Unit in Leeds, one of Europe’s leading rheumatology research centres. In particular, Nigel helps those people who are hypermobile (stretchy) – helping them to make sense of what that might mean for them.
This led Nigel to become a Pilates instructor. Nigel is the only local practising physiotherapist to be a Certified Modified Pilates instructor with the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) which adapts Pilates exercises to best suit you as a person. Since 2007, Nigel has taught several thousand classes and now oversees all the instructors on the team and the classes offered. If you need 1:1 help to get started then Nigel is the ideal person to see to get started.
In 2011, Nigel was part of the award-winning clinic team for the Jersey Business Enterprise awards 2014 Nigel was awarded the Institute of Directors Young Director of the year award. He is a member of a UK based clinic mastery and success club who share ideas to improve your journey in healthcare.
Outside of work you might find him running around after 2 children, being a reluctant exerciser (you know the feeling!!) trying to keep strong, run and cycle. Music (there is a DJ in there somewhere), reading, cooking, watching films, following his interests in learning and productivity or just trying to be mindful are just some of his interests!

“if it hadn’t been for Nigel [..] my hypermobility may never have been taken seriously”
I’ve suffered from discomfort with my neck for sometime...... after consultations with JSSC and manipulation and exercises, my upper back and neck have become much more mobile, flexible and pain free! Thank you Nigel
