Graduate Sports Therapist from the University of Gloucestershire . I provide all aspects of sports therapy; Injury assessment, treatment and rehabilitation; and Sports Massage for athletes and non sports people. I am also a fully insured member of The Society of Sports Therapists. I am always updating my knowledge and techniques through ongoing CPD. I have worked alongside professional and elite sports teams including: Gloucester RFC , Welsh Rugby Union U20, GB Ice Hockey, Great Britain American Football, London Blitz, Tonga Rugby. I have gained a vast amount of experience in a large variety of Sports in Gloucestershire and the whole of the UK. My experience also includes working as an Associate Lecturer in Sports Therapy. I spend my weekends either covering Rugby Matches (Union), American Football with Oxford Brookes University, or supporting local events such as 100 Mile Run 24 hour race. I’ve always been sporty, whether it be rugby, regional netball, national horse riding, flag American football or school sports. As a result of this, I know what it is like to suffer injuries and understand the disruption to your life this can cause. I love working to treat and rehabilitate injuries maximise my clients enjoyment of both life and sport. I thoroughly enjoy taking an athlete through the full range of recovery – starting with pre-habilitation, emergency first aid, assessment, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation using a range of techniques and methods.
I am a graduate sports therapist from the university of Gloucestershire. I have worked within a number of different sporting environments including football, rugby and American football. I have developed my knowledge of injury assessment, treatment and rehabilitation and gained vast amounts of experience while working with Gloucestershire County RFU, Gloucester RFC developing players programme and the British American football association. I am also a Pilates teacher, which I find a great rehabilitation tool for many peoples injuries or niggles. As a keen cyclist, I have experienced my fair share of injuries. This has helped me to understand the frustration and inconvenience that injuries can cause. My past personal experiences have fuelled my love and determination to help others overcome injury and return to what they love doing whether that is sport or just day to day activities.
I am a Graduate Sports Therapist from the University of Gloucestershire. I have worked within a variety of sports such as Athletics, Football and Rugby Union. I am currently Lead Sports Therapist at Cheltenham North RFC where I have been able to develop and expand my knowledge base of injury assessment, management and rehabilitation. I have also gained experience working with the Cornwall County RFU alongside helping non-sports people within occupational healthcare and health risk management. I am able to deliver treatments including sports massage, manual therapy and electrotherapy as well as having an understanding of the biopsychosocial model and holistic healthcare and the benefits that this can have on musculoskeletal injuries. I am keen to learn new methods of treatment and management for injuries by attending CPD courses. During my personal time, I am a keen runner and swimmer. I am interested in all areas of health and fitness and understand the difficulties that injuries can place on everyday life as well as training schedules.
I have a MSc in Sports Therapy and a PhD in Biomechanics. I worked for several years in gait and rehabilitation research publishing in academic journals and presenting at International conferences. Alongside my clinical work, I am currently an Associate Lecturer at the University of Worcester on Physiotherapy, Health and Sport & Exercise programmes. As a Sports Therapist, I am trained in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injury from initial assessment and management through to return to sport. I am particularly interested in the rehabilitation of tendon and ligament injuries, and believe in working with the individual client to tailor rehabilitation to their individual goals. I am a keen cyclist, and having an academic and clinical background in both musculoskeletal and neurological injury this has lead to my work as a para-cycling classifier for both British Cycling and the Union Cycliste Internationale.
