About

  • Biography icon plus

    Jo has extensive experience in treating elite athletes and working in high performance environments, as well as managing musculoskeletal conditions of city workers, weekend warriors and physically active people in pain. She has a good understanding of the importance of the effects that injury and pain can have on normal day to day life and promotes physical activity in all her treatment plans. Through her experience of working in the Military and her appointment as the clinical lead of the Spines department, she developed an interest in chronic pain management and the understanding the multifaceted components to pain. She recognises the great importance of good communication skills, explaining diagnosis and rehabilitation plans to her patients to optimise recovery and performance outcomes. At the heart of this she promotes a multidisciplinary approach, liaising effectively with Physiotherapists, Physicians, Osteopaths/Chiropractors and Surgeons to get the best results for her patients. She is experienced in diagnostic and interventional ultrasound.

    Jo works with athletes of all abilities and has been fortunate enough to be involved in two Olympics and one Paralympics. She worked at both the Olympics and Paralympics in London 2012 in the athletes’ village polyclinic as a sport physician and in the athletics stadium as a field of play team leader. More recently she travelled to Rio as the team physician for the men’s and women’s GB7s squad, with the men successfully winning a silver medal. For the past 8 years, she has worked for England Rugby and has been involved with every team in some capacity. For the last 3 years, she has mainly focused her time with the Men’s and Women’s 7s teams, and has developed an interest in women’s health and performance. She was also involved in the Rugby World Cup as an immediate care doctor and an area medical officer. She has worked in a variety of sports including premiership academy football, rugby, hockey, ice hockey and GB disability target shooting. She has experience with both international men’s & women’s rugby and football and has also worked extensively with the younger age group.
