Sports Injury Scotland
Sports Injury Scotland is based within Run4It on Bothwell Street in Glasgow city. We have a wide range of treatments available, ranging from Injury consultations, rehabilitation, sports massage and online coaching.
I graduated from the University of Teesside with a 1st class honours degree in sports therapy. Throughout my 4 years at university I worked as the sports therapist for the North of England karate squad providing advice and treatment to the coaches and athletes. I have also held various positions within sports injury clinics in Scotland.
I founded Sports Injury Scotland in 2007 once I left university. I realise the importance of implementing up to date scientific research into each individuals assessment, treatment and rehabilitation, this will ensure that the treatment they receive is the best possible for them. I have just recently completed a masters in Advanced Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at Teesside University, which I passed with Distinction. I am currently attending Glasgow Caledonian University, where I am completing my PhD. My area of research is looking at ways to improve primary care in patients with chronic pain, with a focus on Fibromyalgia.
Throughout my masters I undertook a number of research projects including the most effective conservative management strategies in tendonopathies, The implications of gluteal muscle weakness on knee pain, The impact strength training has on patients with multiple sclerosis and my dissertation project consisted of the effect Mental Toughness had on coping with injury and rehabilitation adherence in runners. For any information on my research, please do not hesitate to contact me.
