Alison Gould

Alison has a Master’s Degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine and is a visiting lecturer in physiotherapy at the University of Brighton.

Her excellent academic credentials are backed up by experience gained working as a physio since 2000 in the UK’s National Health Service and Ministry of Defence, county rugby and private practice.

“My particular area of interest is the lower leg and foot. I enjoy the rehabilitation process from initial injury to return to activity. I feel that giving the patient information, exercises, and the ability to self-manage the condition helps the long-term management of an injury and can prevent other injuries from occurring.”

Her sporting interests are strength training, HIIT classes, yoga, gym classes and paddle boarding.

“Most weekends you would see me in the outdoors with my two small boys going for walks, camping, playing football and exploring!”

Maryke Louw

Maryke has Master’s Degree in Sports Injury Management from the University of Brighton and is also a Personal Performance Coach.

She has worked with elite distance runners in Ethiopia and was a member of the medical team at the 2017 IAAF World Championships and World Para Athletics Championships in London. She has also worked at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and the 2015 European Games in Azerbaijan.

As a runner Maryke is familiar with the everyday challenges that active people face when trying to recover from an injury.

 “I’ve realised over time that many injuries can only be treated successfully and prevented from recurring if certain factors in the patient’s lifestyle are also taken into account,” she says.

 “I love all sports but much prefer to exercise outside and off-road. Most weekends I go for a run in the countryside or explore the nearby coast and rivers on my stand-up paddle board.”
