Nicola is our expert in swimming related injuries and has worked alongside some of the best young swimmers in the Merseyside region. She therefore acts as the first point of contact for all of our Physiotherapist who may require expert knowledge in this area and keeps the rest of the team up-to-date in the most current research related to this sport.
Recently she has worked with Danielle Lowe who is one of the best swimmers in her age group and an up-and-coming future star. In July Danielle became the English Schools Secondary Swimming National Champion in the 100m and 200m breaststroke, smashing an English Schools 100m breaststroke record set in 1983 and is the current ASA National Youth Champion, winning gold in the 200m breaststroke.
Nicola has in-depth knowledge of the common injuries associated with swimming and the pressure that each particular stoke places upon the human skeleton. She uses treatment and techniques and rehabilitation programmes that not only enable swimmers to make a speedy recovery from injury, but also reduce the risk of future injuries.
If you would like to specifically see Nicola she is located at our Liverpool and Wirral clinics.
