Gemma Oates. BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy HCPC MCSP
I have been practicing as a Physiotherapist since 2003 and became a specialist in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2005. Since then I have had extensive experience in treating people with all types of musculoskeletal disorders, both in the NHS and privately and have undertaken a number of post-graduate musculoskeletal courses.
In my years practicing as a Physiotherapist, I have loved treating runners and I very much enjoy the satisfaction of helping people return to their sport. I have been a runner myself since a young age and running has been my number one passion throughout my life. This is the reason I chose to become a Physiotherapist and a specialist in running. I love the sense of achievement running gives you and the positive physical and mental health benefits it provides.
I feel passionately that runners should train smartly, have strong and robust bodies and a healthy mindset towards training and goals. Having these attributes will support a healthy and successful runner with less risk of developing an injury. I have experience in women's health and I am particularly interested in the complexity and challenges of women's health in running and sport. Living an active and healthy life is also my passion and I enjoy using my knowledge as a Physiotherapist to help and inspire people to become fit, active and healthy.
In this blog I share my physiotherapy expertise in running, women's health, exercise physiology, health and fitness, in addition to some of my own personal running experiences. I hope you find this helpful to support your running, health and fitness journey.
