I am a senior sports rehabilitator currently employed in Aspetar, Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital where I am working for the last almost 9 years.
I am an experienced sports rehabilitator with a great expertise in the rehabilitation of football players. I am currently working in a country with a high multicultural profile, something that has really developed my communication skills with people from different ethnic backgrounds. As a sports rehabilitator, I have the knowledge of the whole physiotherapy process of athletes and this has positioned me as a coordinator for the whole rehabilitation process. I am managing to organize the whole team of physiotherapists, physical coaches, hydro-therapists, rehabilitation coaches and massage therapists till the athletes return back to full sports participation. I also have a role in the decision making of whether the athletes are ready to be discharged by the hospital or not.
My main expertise is the last phase of rehabilitation and especially the sports specific rehabilitation. I have developed a whole approach on football specific and position specific rehabilitation involving the injury rehabilitation together with a full preparation of the injured player’s conditioning in order to return safe back to pre-injury level. I have an AFC level C football coaching license, making me able to teach and correct athletes’ technique in order for them to achieve their full potential.
I am interested in research and have done some high level publications. I am at the moment making my PhD with a special interest in return to sport after ACL and research on risk factors of ACL injuries and re-injuries.
My experience on working with high level football clubs like Panathinaikos F.C and Qatar Senior Football National Team, makes me be aware of all the needs that high level athletes may have.
All these years, I am trying to develop myself, professionally by following many courses as well as presenting courses and workshops to national and international conferences.
I am confident that my experience and expertise in sports rehabilitation qualify me for consideration. I look forward to meeting you and discussing all my qualifications in detail.
