Dan Sambrook
Dan Sambrook
Dan qualified from Salford School of Physiotherapy in 1995, after spending sometime within the NHS he quickly moved to the private practice sector where he has spent the last 20 years practicing within the North West of England, The Highlands of Scotland and Aberdeen.

During his time within the profession he has gained a wealth of experience in all areas of physiotherapy, including management and treatment of post surgical conditions and spinal rehabilitation as well as acute and chronic orthopaedic injuries especially rheumatoid arthritis.

Due to his love of rock climbing, mountain biking and sea kayaking, he has also specialised in the treatment of sports related injuries, this has ranged from amateur athletes, club level sports professionals, rugby league players, international show jumpers and Olympic gymnasts.

Eilidh Dewar
Eilidh Dewar
Eilidh studied at Queen Margaret University gaining a BSc Hons in Physiotherapy in 2011. Since graduation she has been in private practice working with and learning from several experienced and highly skilled physiotherapists and osteopaths. She has also undertaken various courses including soft tissue massage and acupuncture furthering her knowledge and skills in the musculoskeletal field.

Eilidh has a particular interest in running and running related injuries. This interest developed at a young age when she competed at national level in both cross country and track events. Throughout her degree, she was manager of a specialist marathon running and fitness store where she gained an in depth knowledge of running. During this time, gait analysis became a passion as the biomechanics involved in running hold the key to many common running related injuries (for example ITB syndrome, shin splints, knee pain, hip pain and foot pain). Since graduating, she has gained much experience in treating sports related injuries including amateur and semi-professional runners, cyclists, golfers and rugby players.

Eilidh always adopts a holistic approach to her assessments in order to get to the bottom of the problem and ensure an effective treatment plan.

Lauren is a sport and exercise science student at Abertay University. Having completed her 3rd year, she will begin her final year of her degree September 2016 and subsequently complete a Master’s (MSc) degree in Physiotherapy allowing her to become a chartered and registered physiotherapist by 2019.

From a young age Lauren has been involved in sport; having played in teams from age 7, she was involved in the science of sport through playing regional level football. Latterly Lauren found herself at Kinross Physiotherapy due to a badminton injury. This experience sparked her interest in physiotherapy and she spoke to Dan and Eilidh about doing physiotherapy on completion of the sports science degree, from there the opportunity to do observation with them arose. Lauren works with Dan and Eilidh completing tasks such as phone calls, filing and helping with treatments when appropriate.

Recently Lauren has completed a diploma in Swedish Relaxation Massage and Sport Massage to improve her knowledge and skills in this area. Due to her background in sport science and her involvement in sport she is particularly interested in physiology, biomechanics and injury prevention training.

Lauren is a keen badminton player and competes for Abertay University and Kinross alongside enjoying going to the gym, tennis, football and golf.
