To Whom It May Concern:
As my CV shows, I have over 11 years experience as a physiotherapist, with my last 18 months working in professional sport. In addition to this I have over 8 years experience working in football, in particular at an academy level, with my dissertation at MSc level being based on elite academy aged footballers performance testing.
In my most recent role as lead physiotherapist of professional sailing team Soft Bank Team Japan, I was in charge for overseeing the rehabilitation of all injured athletes. I also worked in unison with strength and conditioning staff to create bespoke injury prevention protocols for each of the sailors.
Injury prevention and the adolescent performer are key areas of interest for myself. I have constructed a number of injury prevention programs for footballers but also other adolescent performers, in sports including, swimming, cricket, golf and athletics. Though injury programs may be transient across all age groups, my understanding of child and adolescent development through the Long Term Athletic Development ethos, means I have created bespoke injury programs addressing performers maturation rather than chronological age.
I am confident that I can bring a high level of physiotherapy and injury prevention to multiple different sporting set ups. With my previous experience and expertise, I believe I can become a valuable member of a performance team.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
