7th season with Oxford United’s first team and enjoying every minute!

7th season and still going strong!

It has been 7 years since I received a call from Oxford United football club asking me if I could help the medical team provide soft tissue therapy for the first team and it has been a major part of my work ever since!

My work at Oxford Utd fits in very well alongside my private clinic in Headington & my theatre work as I work at least one day a week at the OUFC training ground helping the players recover from their previous game and also to assist with their preparation for the coming fixtures.  I also help the full time medical team to support the injured players recovery which can include soft tissue therapy, scar work, fascial gliding therapy and mobilisation.

I also attend home matches at the Kassam stadium where I work alongside the medical team in preparing the players for their fixture which usually includes a lot of soft tissue work and after a couple of hours my work is done and I get to enjoy the game.

I am very fortunate to work alongside a very professional and efficient full time medical team at Oxford United and being able to be a part of such a great team makes my position very enjoyable and rewarding - especially seeing our hard work rewarded when players return from injury and being able to share in the success of the team which so far includes a promotion and 2 Wembley finals and I'm sure that there's lots more to come!
