The Treatment Room – 6 Months On!

Our in-house Sports Injury and Therapy Clinic; The Treatment Room, opened its doors at the end of October 2017 and since then nearly 300 patients & 80 members have walked through our doors. So, to celebrate our 6-month milestone, we would love to share with you events we have been involved with, what our practitioners have got up to and how our patients, you, have found our treatment sessions.

We have treated so many patients with varying injuries and complaints, some of them including:

  • Returning an endurance athlete back to full fitness after suffering a stress fracture
  • Working with a grandmother who ruptured her ACL (knee ligament) whilst skiing and opted against surgery to strengthen her leg with the aim of being able to play unrestricted with her grandchildren.
  • An estate agent who is planning to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in November. Our team have worked with him to progressively increase his training load to avoid the hip pain he has suffered in the past.

The Treatment Room has been proactive in developing links with other Universities to support students studying in their profession. So far in the 6 months we have supported students from Buckinghamshire New University and St. Marys University. Students have experienced shadowing our therapists, assisting in the care of our elite athletes and contributing towards research projects. Marilie Appel & Emma Odeneal wrote about their experiences on The Society of Sports Therapists website, click here to read more.

All our practitioners at The Treatment Room are focussed on their professional development not just for themselves, but to be able to treat you to the best of their ability. Our Clinic Manager, Danielle Garfoot, will be scrubbing up and attending the ankle surgery of one of her patients, something which will prove incredibly beneficial when working with them during the rehabilitation process.

Our Sports Therapist Gemma Hendry has been involved with Team Surrey and Surrey Scorchers since the start of the season and been a key figure with the BUCS Men’s Rugby squad in assessing and managing their injuries. Her presence at Surrey Scorchers has been instrumental in keeping players on court for key games.

We have loved treating all our patients that have come through our doors, and we look forward to treating many more over the next 6 months
