Sports Injury Therapist

Kirsty Atter

Before university Kirsty originally worked within the care sector as a carer and support worker for various clientele ranging from elderly ex-servicemen to young adults with learning disabilities. She now has over 6 years’ experience in this field.

In 2018 she went to the University of Chichester and graduated in 2021 with a Sports Therapy degree, which allowed her to specialise in musculoskeletal injuries and conditions and their treatment and rehabilitation process.

During her time working at the university clinic she gained experience treating a variety of patients and also got to work pitch side with the medical team of Chichester RFC.

Since graduating Kirsty has treated a range of patients including athletes, dancers, healthcare professionals, tradesmen and desk workers and furthered her pitch side experience by becoming Lead Therapist at Sandown & Shanklin RFC.

Kirsty has always been involved in sports from a young age including netball, athletics and ice skating. She was a competitive figure skater for 15 years, competing as an individual and in a synchro team, the Wight Jewels. They had many successes including becoming national champions on multiple occasions and representing Team GB at the 2012 World Championships in Sweden.

With Kirsty’s experience in competitive sport and the care sector she hopes to use this knowledge to her advantage when treating her patients.
