About Martin Davies
MSc, BSc, PgDip
From the very beginning I was always interested in the human body and how it worked and my dream job was to become a sports physio. However, at age 17 a physiotherapist at a careers evening told me that I wouldn’t be able to be a sports physio as “those jobs don’t exist” (thanks for the encouragement whoever you were). So, I changed my goals and studied BSc Sport & Exercise Science.
Completing a Sports Injury module in my first degree, I decided I still wanted to be a physiotherapist. I enrolled as a student physiotherapist on the MSc Rehabilitation Science at Glasgow Caledonian University.
After graduating I worked as a physiotherapist in the NHS. I was surrounded by amazing physios who mentored me and my passion for physiotherapy grew. In deciding I wanted to become as good as I could, I headed back to university to complete a PgDip in Manual Therapy.
I have worked in the NHS and now work in private practice while being heavily involved in elite sport. The sports physiotherapy has given me some amazing experiences. Below are just a few examples
2012 Olympic Games
2014 Commonwealth Games
2015 European Games
2016 World Athletics Championships
2017 World Indoor Athletics Championships
2018 British Sailing Team
These days, I get to split my time between working in my private physiotherapy clinic and traveling the world as part of the British Sailing Teams Sports Science/Sports Medicine team.
My passion for being a physio has never wavered. I started Teach Me Physio to provide online physiotherapy courses to help physiotherapy students during their studies. I wanted to give you the access to learn anatomy, understand how the body works, how to assess the body and how to treat it.
I have created tutorial videos so you can learn from me now, what I have learned over many years. I’ll give you my clinical hints and tips to help you become a confident, effective physiotherapist and start on the path to your dream job, whatever that may be.
