Overview

About me

Cath qualified in 1995 and trained in Sports Medicine at Bath University. She has worked with an extensive range of different sports people, ranging from Paralympians and Olympians to the occasional exerciser. She was a Sports Physician at the 2012 Olympic Games, the 2002 Commonwealth Games, and has worked with GB rowing, track and field sports, marathon, endurance and outdoor adventure sports men and women. She developed an MSc Programme at Bangor University, and is a keen lecturer.

Cath specialised in the diagnosis and treatment of all musculoskeletal conditions, whether acquired through sport or otherwise. She has expertise in getting to the bottom of persistent problems, such as ankle and shoulder injuries. She has a particular interest in the diagnosis of hip and groin problems, including femoroactetabular impingement, and has guided the recovery of over 2,000 patients undergoing hip arthroscopy.

Cath's approach is biomedically and functionally focused. She is passionate about helping patients to get back to doing what's important to them. She works closely with those involved, to help patients rehabilitate and gain new resilience.
