Q&A with Alison


Which aspects of physiotherapy interest you especially?

 

My main interest is in the management of tendinopathies of the lower limb, however I enjoy the rehabilitation process from initial injury to return to activity for all conditions. I feel that giving the patient information, exercises, and the ability to self-manage the condition, in conjunction with hands-on treatment, helps the long-term management of an injury and can prevent other injuries from occurring.

What are your sporting interests?

 

I am a keen gym attendee for both strength training and classes. I also enjoy walking and paddleboarding.

What attracted you to Eastbourne and working at Sportswise?

 

My husband and I moved to Eastbourne in 2007 when he re-trained as a teacher at the University of Brighton. After completing my MSc, I relished the opportunity to work at Sportswise with its links to local, semi-professional and professional sport, and its reputation for good quality and up-to-date practice within Sports and Exercise Medicine. 

What do you like doing when you’re not working?

 

We have two boys who keep us very busy. I also enjoy participating and watching sport and as a family we love to explore the surrounding areas such as the woods, Downs and seaside, on foot or by bike.
