Jessica King, BSc (Hons) GSR - Rehabilitator & Sports Massage Therapist
Spine & Wellness Centre Practice Coordinator

I graduated from St. Maryís University College, Twickenham having completed a three year degree in Sport Rehabilitation. Within this degree, I was trained in many disciplines including anatomy, injury/ pain recognition and treatment, rehabilitation of injuries, sports massage, biomechanical assessment, hydrotherapy, soft tissue techniques and rehabilitation for cardiac patients. As part of my degree, I completed placements in a number of clinics and sports clubs in and around London which was supplemented by additional voluntary work with other sporting organisations to gain more firsthand experience. I have also completed a comprehensive nutrition course and will be gaining the necessary qualification to practice dry needling very soon.

I am registered with the British Association of Sports Rehabilitators and Trainers (BASRaT) which is an ever-expanding body representing practitioners like myself within the UK. My individual final year research project was on the effectiveness of strapping and taping on the proprioception and stabilization of the ankle and consequently this is one of my particular clinical interests. I am also very interested in biomechanics and the way that people walk and run, as by making small corrections, it can have an enormous influence on improving individualís pain.

I am currently employed to provide match day pitchside support to Luton Rugby Football Club first team, and hold a similar role with Hitchin Ladies rugby team.

From a young age, I have always loved sport and exercise and competed for school and county in a number of disciplines. Being so active, I have had my fair share of injuries and understand and empathize with the need to return to activity as effectively and quickly as possible. Outside of the world of rehab and fitness, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, playing netball and watching Harlequins RFC and Arsenal FC!

Yours in Health
