Lucy Bransgrove qualified as a physiotherapist in 2011 from Oxford Brookes University and concurrently completed a diploma in Sports Massage. She then moved to Manchester to work at a multidisciplinary private clinic with a large team of experienced physiotherapists where she became familiar with helping patients recover from Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD), sports injuries and other musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
In 2012, Lucy relocated to London where she worked at a private practice in Wimbledon. Here, she expanded her breadth of experience working with both recreational and professional sports people (particularly runners, cyclists and triathletes), pre and post-operative conditions, ante and post-natal ladies and started up her 1:1 and small group clinical Pilates classes.
Lucy recognised the benefits of continuing education early in her career attending numerous lectures and meetings with surgeons, senior physiotherapists, podiatrists, doctors and other specialists and completing post-graduate courses in Mulligan techniques, Kinesiology Taping, Clinical Pilates (APPI) and Acupuncture (AACP).
This wealth of knowledge served her well when called up to work at various sporting events such as London Olympics 2012, where she managed injuries and any musculoskeletal complaints of the women’s football referees, covering for the Physiotherapist at Surrey County Cricket Club and joining a team of physiotherapists to provide sports massage, advice and first aid to Sir Ian Botham and his team on their fundraising walks for Leukaemia and Lymphoma.
Lucy has also worked at a private clinic in the West End treating more musculoskeletal injuries, including dancers/performers, and ergonomic cases involving injury management and postural correction in the clinic as well as advice and full desk assessments at the workplace.
She also spent 2 years as a sports physiotherapist at Kings College School (KCS) expanding her skills within the sports of rugby and football. This encompassed pitch side first aid, assessment, immediate treatment where appropriate and decision making with regards to returning to play, a sports injuries clinic run at the school, rehabilitation guidance and leading the concussion clinic when the boys suffered head injuries.
After gaining further experience in New Zealand, Lucy has now decided to study a Masters of Osteopathic Medicine to compliment her practice. She always strives to get her patients back to 100% as quickly and effectively as possible and looks forward to applying her varied and evidence based knowledge to each one of her patients whilst working alongside the team as the Bowskill Clinic.
