Sports injuries and performance
Lottie’s main aim and passion as a Physiotherapist is to keep her athletes and her clients injury free by adopting a patient centred approach to her rehabilitation.
After competing for the last time on the England squash junior circuit and schools hockey national championships, Lottie decided to take on a new direction and enrolled in Physiotherapy at Queen Margarets in Edinburgh in 2009. After graduating in 2013 she managed to get a job working for Physioworld which focussed on musculoskeletal injuries, orthopaedics and outpatients. After 3 years at Physioworld Ltd Lottie decided to travel to Vancouver in early 2016 to work for an elite performance gym. This provided the opportunity for Lottie to work with elite athletes of all ages from Tennis Canada, professional hockey players, runners of all disciplines and ice skaters as well as the general population. This built a pillar of knowledge that Lottie still draws on today to build rehabilitation programs tailored to you.
After leaving Vancouver and returning to Plymouth end of 2017, Lottie worked privately in Tavistock and Plymouth managing patients of all ages and abilities among various sports. She continued to work with athletes with a couple competing in the Olympics. After the pandemic, Lottie decided to secure a job at the primary care rehabilitation facility in HMS Drake where she continues to work at today.
In her free time her passion now is predominantly trail running but she also enjoys road cycling and sea swimming. She has competed in a couple ultras and won the Tsunami 16miler 2018 in North Cornwall. Through her passion for sports and having had to rehab herself after two operations to get back to full fitness, Lottie is able to understand the patience required throughout the highs and lows of rehab and the importance of achieving your goals.
Lottie continues to study and is currently completing her MSc in Sports Medicine, Exercise and Health with University College London.
