Physiotherapist and founder
Sarah had wanted to be a physiotherapist from the age of 15, and she realised her dream after qualifying in 1992. She went on to gain a postgraduate qualification in Sport Medicine in 1997, and later became the Outpatient and Sports Injury Manager at the Wellington Hospital.
When she found herself spending more time on paperwork than patients (her clinic at the Wellington was owned by an American corporation), she went into private practice – first helping a small physio clinic get back on its feet, and then setting up Physio Remedies in 2005.
Physio Remedies has come on a long way since its inception (which consisted of just Sarah on her own, in a converted broom cupboard at the Lansdowne Club): with top physios from around the country, state-of-the-art facilities, and relationships with renowned surgeons and sports organisations, it’s one of the most highly regarded physio practices in the country.
Sarah has worked with me for six years to perform at podium level in GB Age Group long-distance triathlon. At 50 years of age, I would long since have had to stop were it not for her deep experience. What sets Sarah apart is her attention to detail, observing the body as a bio-mechanical whole and tracing the subtle cause and effect of many sports injuries. She's also super friendly and communicates in simple terms for busy non-experts. I highly recommend her.

I would happily recommend anyone to see Sarah. She’s an excellent physio, but what I’ve appreciated in particular is how she engages her clients in their own recovery. She gave me my own personalised exercise programme – which she demonstrated during my session – and then followed up with notes and a video for each exercise by email. Excellent. Her encouragement makes me feel that I’m in a partnership to get rid of this wretched injury!
