Chloe Greenwood
BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy

From people to ponies

Chloe Greenwood added horses to her list of potential clients after graduation, and is now applying her specialist knowledge of soft tissue injury and rehabilitation to her dual role as a Human and Equine Sports Therapist.

While most Sports Therapy graduates go on to work exclusively with humans in clinical settings, Chloe decided use the knowledge and skills she learned on her course to benefit both humans and animals. While at University, she broadened her experience, through industry placements and work related learning activities with organisations including Wigan Warriors Academy Rugby Club, St Helens Rugby Football Club, Preston North End Ladies Football Club and Umbro International Soccer Cup, and also worked within the University’s sports rehabilitation clinic and massage clinic. After graduating, Chloe completed a diploma in Equine Sports Massage Therapy, and now runs her own business treating both horses and humans.

“The placement opportunities at Edge Hill were vital in advancing my skills as a therapist as I was able to put theory into practice and everything I had learnt started to come together. I was able to work with a range of sports clubs and really enjoyed travelling with the teams and being a member of the club.”
