My Profile Summary - Please contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:
With over 12 years experience as an MSK physiotherapist, with my last 19 months working in professional sport, I believe I can bring a high level of service to a variety of set ups. Within this time I have worked 8 years in football, 5 in rugby, 4 in cricket, 2 in swimming and 1 1/2 years in sailing. This has forwarded myself a vast wealth of knowledge when dealing with various sporting conditions.
In my most recent role I was lead physiotherapist of professional sailing team Soft Bank Team Japan, creating structured injury prevention programmes to compliment the demands placed on professional sailors both on and off the water. I also corrected movement deficits highlighted through, function and sport specific assessments, via multiple soft tissue treatment methods. As well as these pre-hab modalities I also assessed and rehabbed injuries ensuring appropriate referral when required and reporting accurate return to performance timelines to team management.
Prior to working for Softbank Team Japan I worked at APEX Physiotherapy in Bermuda. This role entailed assessing sport and sedentary client’s injuries, to create patient specific rehab programmes. I also worked with Bermuda national sides in football, rugby, cricket and other sports teams/performers and academies, generating bespoke injury prevention exercise programmes and treating a wide variety of injuries. The role also required me to travel with teams to, sometimes remote, sporting venues and manage logistics in regards to a variety of sports performance requirements, ranging from sourcing clean water to the nearest medical facility.
My work experience has been complimented with my continual education, completing an Msc in Sports Physiotherapy, obtaining a license to practice acupuncture/dry needling and in the last 5 years becoming certified in the Selectional Functional Movement Assessment (Lv 1 & 2).
As well as watching and playing a variety of sports, I also enjoy keeping fit and taking on new challenges. I’ve travelled for work and pleasure and have sought a variety of life experiences such as running the New York marathon to selling bikes for Harley Davidson in the USA.
