Georgia Going BSc (hons)
Georgia graduated in 2014 with a BSc (hons) in Sports Therapy from Coventry University. Whilst at university Georgia provided pitch side first aid to a number of different sports including football, rugby and netball. Georgia was also a part of a student led clinic at Coventry University which offered free injury assessments and treatments. Due to this she gained essential experience in treating clients of all ages. In 2013, Georgia provided post-race massages to runners of the Brighton and London marathons.
After completing university, she went on to become the Sports Therapist for AFC Rushden and Diamonds U21s. Alongside this she also worked with a Sports Rehabilitator with the Academy teams. During her time at AFC Rushden and Diamonds she was able to work alongside other sports therapists and sports rehabilitators through which she learnt valuable skills. Georgia then became head Sports Therapist for Rugby Town Football Club for the 2015/16 season where she provided first aid, injury advice, treatment and personal rehabilitation programmes.
Georgia joined the team at Bespoke Injury Management in November 2015. Since then she has grown in confidence and enjoys working in a private practice. Whilst being a member of the Bespoke Injury Management team Georgia has gained qualifications in Pregnancy Massage and a Hot Stone Massage.
In January 2018 Georgia became Assistant Manager of Wollaston Therapy Centre after successfully running the centre whilst Centre Manager Donna Riding was on maternity leave.
Why I became a Sports Therapist.
“At school I was in all the sports teams available which meant I picked up a good few injuries. I suffered multiple ankle sprains, pulled muscles and even a concussion from being hit in the face with a hockey stick!
It had always fascinated me how the body manages to repair itself after an injury, so I decided to start researching what types of careers I could go into. This is when Sports Therapy caught my eye. It combined my love of sports (watching more than playing these days!) and my interest in the human body.
I studied for 3 years at Coventry University and attained a Upper Second Class Honours Degree.
Since then I have did 2 years pitch side work with football with one year as Head Sports Therapist and I am now entering my fifth year as a member of the Bespoke Injury Management team and enjoying every minute!
The best part of my job is seeing a client come into the clinic in agony and seeing them leave with a smile on their face because of the treatment they have received from me.”
