Sophie gained First Class Honours in Physiotherapy from the University of Worcester. Her career started in the NHS where she gained experience in multiple clinical specialties, including paediatrics, musculoskeletal outpatients, orthopaedics and on critical care when redeployed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Alongside this role she also worked at multiple, large sporting events. These include the World Indoor Athletics Championships 2017, the London Marathon 2018-2022 as a physiotherapy team lead, and the World Triathlon Championship Series 2022. She is passionate about delivering high quality medical care and provides assessments, treatment and sports massage to support participants, ranging from amateur to professional athletes.
She also has significant experience working within football and currently works with Tottenham Hotspur Academy when not in the clinic. This followed her previous role as first team physiotherapist for Hendon Football Club. She assesses injuries, providing a clear diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation plan to enable a quick return to play. She also works pitchside providing urgent medical care to players when necessary. As you can tell, she is passionate about sports injuries.
Sophie is passionate about helping people return to the things they enjoy as quickly as possible. She utilises a combination of treatment approaches which include exercise-based rehabilitation, shockwave therapy and medical dry needling to name a few. These techniques allow her to treat common tendon problems such as elbow pain (tennis elbow/golfers elbow), rotator cuff injuries and achilles pain.
Outside of work, Sophie’s hobbies include playing tennis and running. She also loves to travel and always has a flight booked somewhere!
