I qualified with first class honours in Sports Therapy from Teesside University in 2012. Since then I have successfully built up my experience and skills within Teesside Sports Injury Centre (TSIC) at the Stokesley, Middlesbrough and Billingham clinics. I have also been able to build up significant business experience during my 3½ years with TSIC after taking over the business management in 2014. This experience has been invaluable and I have been developing the principle idea behind Get Back to the Action for several years.

In 2014, I returned to further education a Teesside University and in October 2016 completed my postgraduate (MSc) degree in Movement Science and Multi-Modal Rehabilitation. Whilst this was challenging around work commitments, I am very happy to have fulfilled this; graduating with merit in November 2016. This additional study has proved invaluable; adding to my knowledge of biomechanical assessments and hydrotherapy. It has also given me a qualification in Grade 5 Spinal Manipulation.  Recently I have also completed qualifications in pregnancy massage, fascia foam rollers and massage balls and medical (dry needling) acupuncture.

Away from clinic I am also the Sports Therapist at Acklam RUFC and have been working for the club since February 2013.  This included a year away from the club to complete my MSc and develop Get Back to the Action.   At Acklam, I provide my sports therapy services; injury assessment, treatment and first aid to all ages and teams of the club. I really enjoy this additional work with the club as it allows me to act as clinical supervisor to 3rd year undergraduate Sports Therapy students undertaking work placements. Between January 2013 to July 2016 I also provided lecturing support on the Sports Therapy programme at Teesside University; covering lectures in rehabilitation, sports massage, peripheral mobilisation, anatomy and clinical assessment.

My interest in sports injuries has come from a lifelong association with sport. Daughter of former Yorkshire County Cricket Captain Phil Carrick I have seen first-hand, the demands of elite sport and the impact of injury. As a former, county and club netball and hockey player and equestrian competitor I have suffered injuries and noticed there is a significant gap between care for elite level and non-professional athletes. Consequently, I believe everyone, no matter their sporting prowess should be entitled to the correct care and advice.

Outside of clinic, I try to keep active mostly running and recently joined Great Ayton tennis club.  On a personal note I enjoy walks in the countryside or the beach and exploring local areas. I am also a passionate follower of many sports mostly, football, rugby league, cricket. However, I have always tried to understand the complexities of many sports. This enables me to use my imagination to effectively understand the complexities of how injuries can occur and how to treat and rehabilitate patients to suit their individual sports.
