Maryke Louw

MSc Sports Injury Mangement, BSc Physiotherapy


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


She and Alison started Treat My Achilles in 2018 to enable people from all over the world to get expert physio treatment for their Achilles tendon injuries via video call. 


Maryke no longer sees patients and concentrates solely on making available great Achilles injury advice on the TMA blog and YouTube, based on her wealth of experience and the latest research.

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.

Maryke was based at one of the UK’s leading centres for sports medicine, in East Sussex, for eight years. This is also where she met Alison. During this time she also provided pitch-side support for various sports teams in East Sussex, including Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s Academy.

As a runner and former recreational triathlete, 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. “This has become an integral part of the approach that all TMA physios follow.”
