Why I became a sports therapist.
I loved Physics, Biology and Chemistry at School (thanks to the Teachers for making them so interesting). I only went to the after school Gymnastics, Athletics (100m, 200m, 500m and javelin) and Netball (“retired” after a year as 99% of players were twice my height), as an excuse to hang out with my friends and avoid doing chores at home. So I guess with the above puzzle pieces, there was a natural progression into Sports Studies at College. A couple of years later, I ran the London Marathon, to be honest, I preferred the training than the actual run, but remember reading up on strength training and how to prevent/recover from running injuries. My mind was blown. Fast forward to a BSc (Hons) Degree in Sports Therapy, three seasons with a local Rugby Club and a season with a college Academy Football Team. Over the last 15 months, it’s been rewarding to see Wollaston Therapy Centre clients gain relief from stiff/tight muscles and to help repair joint, tendon or muscular conditions.
