So, its September! I still can't believe how far through the year we are already.
September for me this year means going back to Houghton Rugby Club for my 3rd consecutive season as their club Sports Massage Therapist and pitch-side first aider, as well as going back to University to further my Knowledge.
Last season HRUFC had a successful season and were promoted from DN3 to DN2.
Hard work on the pitch and with a little help from myself behind the scenes and pitch-side secured a top 2 finish in the league as well as winners of the Durham County Cup. I thoroughly enjoy this part of my job and i love being part of aiding injured players back to fitness. I'm there at homes games and also travel away so i'm always on hand when needed.
I have been there for their last few training sessions in August helping with recovery through pre-season and getting players ready for the season ahead. Saturday 1st September is the first game of the season for HRUFC in DN2 away against Winlaton. I will be there providing treatments and strapping before the game, whilst i will be pitch side during. I will also be on hand afterwards for any injuries that do occur.
This means my Thursday evening and mobile Saturday appointments will no longer be available. I still have morning clinic appointments at Sunderland Physiotherapy Clinic available every other Saturday.
Back to School
As of Monday 24th September i will be embarking on my next career adventure by going back to University to study MSc Sports Rehabilitation. This path is something i wish i took when i first went to uni, but hey ho, we live and learn! Sports rehab is something i feel passionately about succeeding in and will enhance my knowledge greatly with regards to injuries and rehabilitation. This degree, i am hoping, will enable me to push my career even further and help me towards achieving my long term goals of working with professional teams/individuals.
With that said, Monday appointments from 24th September will not be available.
Availability going forward:
Fri 9am-11am / 5:30-6:30
(Monday mobile apps 9:30-4pm until 17th September)
Sat 9am-11:30am (every other)
So, thats my September update! Few changes to availability but im sure i can squeeze you all in somewhere. 🙂
Ps. I finally have a new car where my bed actually fits into the boot without having to put my back seats down!
