An avid outdoor enthusiast, Jo gained an interest in sports injury from firsthand experience of how injuries can affect all aspects of life, having detrimental effects on training, competing and general wellbeing. Whilst representing Great Britain at international mountain biking events from 1997- 2003, Jo had personal experience of what professional sports medicine involves and has a true understanding that people (like herself) want to be fixed and back in training, ready for an event yesterday!Wanting to learn more and specialise in sports injuries, Jo undertook and gained a BSc (Hons) in Sports Therapy in 2004 whilst enjoying playing high level (BUSA) university volleyball. Upon graduation, Jo started Back on Track in 2004 from a patient list of zero from the Andover Leisure Centre.
Although no longer operating from Andover Leisure Centre, Back on Track continues to operate from a clinic at Andover Down Farm. Frustrated at some of the barriers of sports therapy, Jo continued her learning development gaining a physiotherapy degree with first class honours in 2012. Jo will continue her enthusiasm and sports medicine direction using the latest evidence to assess, rehabilitate and maintain athletes of all calibre efficiently and effectively.Jo enjoys treatment and rehabilitation of all sports injuries, but injuries from running and cycling are her particular favourite with rehabilitating post operative knees and shoulders a close second. Jo is a registered member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, Physiotherapists in Sport and Society of Sports Therapists and Health Professions Council.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS SAY?


I was adamant that pre op I wanted to keep up my exercise regime and Jo was very knowledgeable in terms of helping me understand what I could continue with and helped me explore some activities I had not considered.
I am now post op and well on the road to recovery using Jo now to regain my muscle mass and strengthen my leg.
I can’t recommend Jo highly enough she is extremely knowledgeable and there is nothing she does not know about how the body works. Her service is friendly and she makes you feel at ease completely in her fab centre.

Thank you so much for all your help over the last few weeks. It has been great to have effective treatment, advice and encouragement, as well as permission to ‘force the envelope’. I’ll endeavour to continue to work on mobility and proprioception.
