My name is Robert Alexander and I’m the new physiotherapist working at the sports club. I thought I’d present to you a little information about myself, and what I can do to help the members of the club.

 

I was born in Broxbourne and attended the local JMI school. My parents moved to Ware where I continued my education at Christ Church JMI and then on to Richard Hale. Due to my sport I continued my education at Arizona State University where I studied Sports Science. I had the pleasure of working with Dan Landers, editor of “The American Journal of Sports Psychology” and Christine Wells who has done considerable research with women in sport. After my degree I remained in Arizona and worked at a physiotherapy clinic helping to run the exercise-testing program offered. On returning to the UK after six years, I started my physiotherapy degree at Salford University, a shock to the system after the experience that Arizona offered. Since completing my degree I have worked at The QEII, The Rivers and Princess Alexandra hospitals. Before setting up the practice in Broxbourne, I spent the final 4 years in the NHS working as an “Extended scope practitioner” working closely with the Spinal surgeon.

 

I have a keen interest in sport, both participation and watching. Swimming was my first sport in which I dedicated a significant amount of time to. I learnt to swim at Broxbourne School pool and the Spinny in Hoddesdon, sadly, both now closed. My competitive career started with Ware SC and then continued at Hatfield when I achieved a place on the county swim team. It was my swimming that took me to Arizona State University. Upon returning to the UK and starting my physiotherapy studies I took up rowing. Since then I have been an active member of Broxbourne rowing club, having success at Henley Royal regatta, Henley Masters regatta, National Masters, European and World Masters competitions. In recent years, I have enjoyed the challenges of numerous open water swimming competitions, and sprint triathlons. I would like to try a sensible triathlon distance, but find it difficult to get the training in.

Stay healthy
