Kalum Brooker

I am a second year Bsc Physiotherapy student at UEA – the clinical placements which my course has sent me to have been primarily musculoskeletal-based and had me seeing a broad spectrum of patients in this discipline. I qualified in sports massage early in 2018 and since doing so have run my own temporary massage business from my home in Suffolk, as well as providing post event massage at the Great East Run in Ipswich.

In addition, I have completed CPD courses in sports taping and kinesiology taping and have a sound exercise background through work as a casual fitness instructor at the Sportspark.

SPECIALITY AREAS

  • Musculoskeletal assessment
  • Post event sports massage
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Rehabilitation

For an appointment contact me at k.brooker@uea.ac.uk or 07775 588910.

Caitlin Graham-Smith

I am currently in my second year studying Physiotherapy (BSc) at UEA, and qualified in Sports Massage in early 2019. Since then, I have completed further CPD training, including Sports Taping and Pitch-side First Aid. I have a keen interest in sports and musculoskeletal therapy, and have had many diverse experiences in this area from the practice placements on my course. Additionally, I have had invaluable experiences and opportunities observing therapists working with elite athletes in the UK and Qatar, which has helped to shape my clinical practice.

SPECIALITY AREAS

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Neuromuscular techniques
  • Pre-event & post-event massage
  • Muscle energy techniques

For an appointment please contact me at c.graham-smith@uea.ac.uk.

Anush Rana

I am a first-year MSc Physiotherapy student at the University of East Anglia. Having graduated recently with first-class honours in Sports Therapy, I have treated a range of injuries whilst working in high-level sports and a variety of clinical settings.

Coming from a sporting background, I think it is important to look after our bodies, not just for professionals or athletes but everyone because we often neglect our aches and pains.

SPECIALITY AREAS

  • Sports Massage
  • Soft Tissue & Myofascial Release
  • Manual Therapy
  • Injury Assessment & Rehabilitation
  • Movement Analysis

For an appointment, contact me at anush.rana@uea.ac.uk or 07933307670.
