University clinical supervisor and assistant lecturer
My qualification background and varied experience means I have built a strong knowledge in a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. I have a particular clinical interest in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of Runners. As an avid runner myself, competing at events from 5km to Ultramarathon, I know how bigger impact running injuries can have. I'm passionate about being able to help people recover quickly and get back to performing at their maximum ability - whatever that may be.
I take pride in my work and place high value in being able to teach my clients as much as possible about their injuries - I feel that this helps the recovery process and helps people to deal with their own injuries better in the future.
What is Sport Rehabilitation
Sport Rehabilitators (GSR) help people suffering from pain, injury or illness involving the musculoskeletal system. They help people of all ages to maintain their health and fitness, recover from and prevent injury and reduce pain using exercise, movement and manual based therapeutic interventions. A GSR is a graduate level autonomous healthcare practitioner specialising in musculoskeletal management, exercise based rehabilitation and fitness.
GSR's are regulated by BASRaT and hold comprehensive professional and public liability insurnace. The BASRaT register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
