JO MEEK JOINS TAVISTOCK PHYSIO CLINICS
By James ArmstrongIt is with great excitment that we can introduce the wondeful Jo Meek to the Tavistock Physio Clinic's team! As a very active community Tavistock we Jo is going to fit right in. She is going to add so much to the team and give patients a specialist sports physio option. This is what Jo has to say.
" Very excitingly I am moving home- back to Devon! I have been living in Hampshire for the past 5years. My name is Jo Meek and I have been a physio for 10years. I am also a mad keen runner (known as the Running Squirrel https://jomeekblog.wordpress.com). I have been a runner for 20years who tried ultra- running in 2013 and have never looked back. I completed the Marathon des Sables and came 2nd and am still the highest placed British female. Since then I have become a SCOTT international sponsored athlete and gone on to represent GB in the World Trail and the 100km Road Championships amongst other races.
I love being a physio as much as I love running and can essentially combine them both. I have experienced most running injuries; fully appreciating their frustration and equally successfully rehabilitating from them. I do not just treat runners though. I have gained experience working for the military and within the English Institute of Sport (EIS) I have treated and travelled with a wide range of athletes from an Olympic champion to junior potentials within a variety of sports; GB Skeleton Bobsleigh, swimmers, pentathletes and rugby players to name a few. I am just finishing off a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy at the University of Bath where my thesis has been on Hampshire County Cricket so adding to the mix of my sports experience.
I am looking forward to bringing my skills and enthusiasm to Devon and the Tavistock Physio Clinic".
Welcome to the team Jo!
