ED PRATT – I hold a first class honours degree in Sports Therapy and an MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine. I currently split my time between clinical work and working as a part-time lecturer at Leeds Beckett University on the Sports Therapy programmes.
After a period working for another Sports Therapy company, I started Ed Pratt Sports Therapy in 2010 and have had the pleasure of working with some exceptional people and athletes. I believe in treating everyone as an individual, no two people or injuries are the same and this needs to be reflected in the rehabilitation.
Since I started I have worked with teams as well as the private practice, this has provided a broad spectrum of experience in both acute and chronic injuries. I have extensive knowledge of treating running/multi-sport related injuries as well rugby, gym injuries and back pain.
I am a member of The Society of Sports Therapists and play an active role in the Society acting as Chairman of the Communications Group. The work of The Society is extremely important in maintaining professional standards and a high level of governance within the Sports Therapy profession as it goes through the regulatory process.
Amelia Gill – My studying began 11 years ago at The University of Hull where I gained an honours degree in Sport, Health and Exercise Science. After graduating, I joined the British Army and served 6 years until August 2017. During my service, I deployed on an operational tour in Afghanistan and spent 4 years as a Physical Training Instructor. As a PTI, I had the privelege of training recruits using a varied syallabus, which included: cardiovascular, strength and role specific conditioning. It was in this job that I became adept at exercise prescription and my interest in injury rehabilitation really began.
During my last 2 years of service I studied a Sports Therapy Masters degree at Leeds Beckett University and graduated in 2017. I am a member of The Society of Sports Therapists, which is the lead organisation for this profession in the UK. Every patient and their injury is unique and their rehabilitation plan will be tailored to suit their needs.
