Pocklington Physiotherapist Picked for Olympics
12:00am 11th April 2012
Pocklington physiotherapist Lisa Wiles is celebrating after receiving confirmation that she will be a squad physiotherapist at both the Olympics and Paralympics after 70,000 people applied for prestigious roles in the medical services team.
A delighted Lisa said:
"I've been allocated football at Newcastle and wheelchair basketball at the O2 in London and I can't wait! It's an amazing opportunity to work on elite athletes and I'm looking forward to working with some of the best sports doctors, physios, osteopaths, and chiropractors in the country."
"The Olympic call up came on the back of an invitation to treat athletes at two Olympic test events in Boxing and Taekwondo last year. I'm delighted to have been chosen as 70,000 people applied for just 1,800 medical services places for the Olympics and 1,200 places for the Paralympics."
25 year old Lisa Wiles will be on hand to assess and treat injuries with soft tissue release, trigger points, acupuncture, ultrasound and exercise therapy for the duration of the Olympics (27th July to 12th August) and the Paralympics (29th August to 9th September) and will be covered at her Pocklington and South Cave clinics by Chartered Physiotherapist, trained fitness instructor and former semi professional squash player Chris Rusling from York.
