Sports Therapy

After achieving my MSc in Sports Therapy I became a member of the The Society of Sports Therapists (SST).  I have had experience working in professional football (championship) providing assessment, treatment, soft tissue massage and rehabilitation to players. Sports therapy uses the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare you for training and competition. The skills of a sports therapist are;

  • Injury recognition and evaluation

  • Injury management, treatment, and referral; 

  • Injury rehabilitation

  • Education and professional practice issues

  • Injury prevention

In addition to this I also provide pitchside cover to provide trauma support and emergency first aid. My training and experience has given me the skills to provide a variety of treatment for injuries such as joint mobilisations, sports massage, taping and electrotherapy.
