Tom our Sports Therapist graduated with a BSC Hons in Sports Therapy from the University of Central Lancashire in 2011.
After graduating Tom worked for Southend United Football Club in the English Football League where, under the guidance of the head physiotherapist , worked with the first team players, assisting in training and on match days, gaining first-hand experience of treating pain and injury in elite sportsmen. Tom also took an active role in the football club’s training academy working with all groups from the under 8 age group through to the under 23 side gaining experience of working with and treating a wide range of age groups and sporting abilities.
Upon leaving Southend United, Tom started working in a private clinic expanding his diagnostic and treatment skills working with patients from a wide variety of different sports including football, rugby, hockey running and tennis. This enabled Tom to spend time time with his clients to not just manage their pain levels but also understand why an injury has occurred and work with them to reduce the chances of an injury returning again in the future through bespoke exercise programs.
Tom is a very experienced clinician and is able to offer treatments such as sports massage, mobilisations, myofascial release, postural analysis and correction, taping and one to one injury rehabilitation as part of any treatment package.
Tom is a qualified Personal Trainer and sportsman himself, having run two London marathons and several half marathons and plays football regularly using his skills, knowledge and experience to focus particularly on the rehabilitation of sporting injuries and developing work programs to get clients fully fit and back to post injury competitive levels.
Tom has made the move from Essex to Banbridge to join the team at the Loughbrickland clinic.
