As our team has grown over the last year or so, we thought it would be a great time to introduce you to the team that we have to help you, re-introducing the more familiar faces and welcoming the new ones!
Today we meet Sports Massage Therapist, Will.
What are your clinical qualifications?
I qualified from St. Mary’s University with a Level 4 in Sports Massage in 2018. I am in my final year of studying an MSc in Sports Rehabilitation (also at St. Mary’s) which I am due to finish in October this year.
What areas have you previously worked in?
I have done lot’s of event work at various races and including the London Marathon and working track side for Thames Valley Harriers. During University, I have had a placement at National League Football Club, Aldershot Town, treating and rehabilitating injured players.
Do you have any special areas of interest in your work?
Achilles Tendinopathy is my condition of interest. I am currently researching whether strength of the calf muscles is a risk factor in those who have this condition for my MSc dissertation.
My special interest is in sports rehabilitation and returning people back from injury to their pre-injury state with reduced pain & increased strength and confidence.
My sporting interest lays with running. Having run from a young age I have a vested interest in this area both injury and performance related.

Buying my first house!
