Find out more about Claire

I have always had a passion for sport and exercise all my life which lead me to pursue a career in healthcare where I graduated with an Honours Degree in Sports Rehabilitation and Athletic Therapy from the Institute of Technology, Carlow (Ireland) in 2014. Throughout my time growing up playing sport, I have always had injuries myself and therefore I have dedicated my life to helping people to return to full fitness following injury.

Prior to joining Clwydian Sports Therapy and Injury Clinic, I have had experience working in Ireland with sports teams and in the UK including several Gaelic Football, Hurling and Rugby teams and also within private practice in London. My experience also includes working with children and adults with neurological conditions within both a gym environment and in a Hydrotherapy setting. I have a passion for helping people to improve their lives and live painfree.

 

In my free time I love to train and play sport and also enjoy playing music and being outdoors walking my dog. I continue to apply my knowledge and expertise in exercise rehabilitation at the Clwydian Sports Therapy Clinic to help achieve patient’s goals while always striving to give them a better future.

 

Additional qualifications:

  • Dry Needling

  • Myofacial Dry Cupping

  • Medical First Aid and Sports Trauma Management

Megan Burke

Sports Therapist

BSc Hons Sports and Exercise Therapy

Society of Sports Therapists (SST) Member

Find out more about Megan

I am passionate about being a Sports Therapist, helping people back from injury and reach their goals in daily life or sport.  It is a rewarding career, to see patients improve throughout their treatment.

 

I graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a First Class Honours in Sports and Exercise Therapy, where I completed placements with Leeds Rhinos Rugby League and Bradford Bulls Academy.  During my time at Bradford Bulls RLFC, I received the ‘unsung hero’ award for my hard work and dedication.

 

I have experience treating both sporting injuries and musculoskeletal conditions in a private injury clinic setting since graduating. Due to this experience, I don’t underestimate the importance of returning to daily activities (or sport) pain free and I am able to adapt treatment and advice to each individual.

 

When I am not at work, I love exploring the outdoors with my two cocker spaniels. In addition, I find the gym an amazing way to destress, with strength and conditioning being an area I enjoy to research too. Each evening I fill in a journal where I reflect on my day, what I am grateful for and my goals going forward. This helps keeps me accountable, grateful and motivated. 

 

Additional qualifications:

  • Level 3 CPD Award in Pilates Training

  • World Rugby Level 3 AICIR (Advanced Immediate Care in Rugby)

  • World Rugby Concussion Management for Health Care Professionals

  • FIFA Diploma in Football Medicine

  • First Aid at Work with AED certificate
