My name is Molly Powis and I am the Lead Sports Therapist at Faultless Fitness. I graduated from the University of Gloucestershire in 2018 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Therapy, whereby I had many exciting opportunities along the way. I have provided Sports Therapy services to a diverse range of sports, including football, rugby, American football, and CrossFit, which involved working with males and females, various ages, venues and different levels of competition. My foremost Sports Therapy experiences included working at Twickenham stadium, Gloucester Rugby, the London Marathon and Cinderford RFC. I am continuing to progress as a Sports Therapist within a sporting environment at Luctonians RFC, but I am extremely excited to adapt within a sport and exercise science environment here at Faultless!
My passion for sports and fitness, especially football and running, has been a huge part of my life since a young age, where I picked up different injuries over the years. I have always been fascinated by the extensive systems of the human body and sporting injuries, from how we start immediate treatment after an acute injury, or how to explore where chronic injuries may arise from. A combination of both aspects led me on to where I am now, which I want to develop through a Masters degree.
As with many others, I didn’t understand the difference between a Sports Therapist and a Physiotherapist. So, what is a Sports Therapist? My healthcare role specialises in musculoskeletal injuries. The Society of Sports Therapists state that,
‘Sports Therapy specifically concerns the prevention of injury and rehabilitation to regain optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability’.
I am extremely excited to bring a new service to Faultless Fitness, where I can help you with your aches and pains and succeed in your training to achieve any goals that you desire!
