Chris Dumbrell

My experience spans across various settings, including professional football clubs and private practice, allowing me to work effectively both in group environments and one-on-one with clients. 

In my previous roles, I have gained extensive experience in post-surgery rehabilitation, helping clients get back on their feet and regain full functionality. This includes designing and implementing individualised rehabilitation programs that address the specific needs of each client, ensuring a safe and effective recovery process.

As a qualified sports massage therapist, I am skilled in soft tissue therapy, which is essential for complementing injury rehabilitation and enhancing recovery. My approach combines hands-on treatment with personalised exercise programs to promote healing and prevent future injuries.

At Brighton and Hove Albion FC Women’s Academy, I provided comprehensive medical care, from pitch-side first aid to injury assessment and rehabilitation for young athletes. My role within a multidisciplinary team has honed my communication skills and ability to deliver tailored treatment plans that ensure optimal recovery and performance.

My academic background, with a distinction-awarded MSci in Sports Therapy from Chichester University, complements my practical experience, equipping me with the knowledge and skills to deliver high-quality care.
