Sarah graduated in 2007 from Derby University having studied Sports Science and continued studying, gaining her MSc in Sport Injury from Sheffield Hallam in 2009.  Most recently Sarah gained an MSc in Physiotherapy in 2013.

Alongside this, Sarah works closely with her Netball team who compete up to Northern League level and has a keen interest in shoulder and knee injuries.

In her spare time Sarah enjoys cycling, skiing and takes part in competitive netball having played at National level over the years.


Sarah was very good, she really put me at ease she was very friendly and good at her job, certainly benefited from her treatment.

Mrs R

I received fantastic treatment at Sano Physiotherapy (North Shields) where all three members of staff that I received treatment from (Joe, Sarah and Sinead) were all very knowledgeable on the issues that I was having. Within a matter of weeks they helped reduce my pain level and assisted me in the process of recovery. The pain is now self managed and well on the way to a full recovery, hard to imagine that this would have been possible without these three within a matter of weeks. Thanks for the great service. Would recommend to anyone.


Very pleased with the treatment and advice recieved by Sarah at the North Shields branch for a back injury, her friendly and chatty manor helped distract during uncomfortable parts of the treatment and the progress made has been fantastic! So pleased to go from major discomfort with no sleep and constant pain relief to mild symptoms that can be self managed with the appropriate exercises feels great to feel normal again. Would highly recommend


I have known Sarah for a number of years throughout this time I have always been able to call on her for advice, support and guidance to keep me playing netball and basketball. Injured areas include knees, foot and more recently my back. Problems diagnosed very quickly and following treatment/specific exercise I am back on the court. A first class service!
