Jaclyn Coleman MSc Sports Injury Rehabilitation,BSc(Hons) Physiotherapy, BSc (Hons) Sports Rehabilitation

I started my studies in Sports rehabilitation and then onto Physiotherapy from which I graduated in 2008 from the University of Salford. I have worked in the NHS for many years whilst completing my training and also after graduation gaining lots of knowledge skills and experiences treating a wide range of conditions from neurological, respiratory, paediatrics, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal. Whilst working in this environment I further studied for a Masters degree in sports injury and rehabilitation.

Outside of the NHS I also spent much of my time working in many different sporting environments including gymnastics / trampolining, judo, rugby, tennis, golf, rowing, karate to name a few. I regularly work now for British Gymnastics in all disciplines and as Chief Physiotherapist for the domestic program for British University sport. During my sports work I have worked at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and also the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing in 2014. Working in this wide variety of environments has only improved my practice to give high quality patient care.

I regularly attend training courses to keep up to date with latest research and gain other skills to enhance my practice and thus improve patient experiences such as manual therapy, manipulations, massage, taping skills and acupuncture.

Ben Matthew BSc (Hons), Physiotherapy MCSP

Since graduating as a physiotherapist in 2014 I have worked in several private healthcare settings while completing further training. I started in orthopaedics on the ward and in clinic working extensively with joint replacements, arthroscopic surgeries and less common procedures of the upper and lower limbs. Over this period I attended several courses and gained an AACP acupuncture qualification. In recent years I have completed modules towards a Masters degree in Advanced Clinical Practice for Musculoskeletal Management. This has led to research planning, recognition from the Higher Education Academy and learning advanced techniques in assessment and treatment for all areas of the body. During this time I have been predominantly treating chronic pain complaints and university sport scholarship students with several competing at national or international level. I love seeing clients achieve their rehabilitation goals, whether that be the stepping stones or the big ones. I like to ensure an understanding of the big picture and an agreed treatment plan where I can use a range of treatment methods to supplement rehab and exercise programmes.
