Sarah Shaw

Lecturer in Sports Therapy

Applied Sport and Exercise Sciences

I am an energetic hardworking multidisciplinary team player. I am passionate about teaching and learning and sharing my knowledge with students to inspire them to achieve and progress into a well-rounded clinician.


I have always taken a keen interest in musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation and thoroughly enjoyed working with both the general public and amateur and elite level athletes to get them back to activities of daily living and sport. I hope to disseminate my experiences alongside evidence based practice to grow the future generation of sports therapists.

To maintain my clinical skills I have worked within the sporting and private sector with teams such as New Zealand Rugby League, Hull FC, North Ferriby United and athletes from The British Open Squash Championships.
