Kerri Surman is a sports physiotherapist with over 10 years’ experience of treating sports related injuries. Kerri graduated as a Sports Therapist in 2005, running her own business and working in Women’s football for 3 years before working in the NHS whilst studying for her physiotherapy qualification.
After graduating with a 1st class honours degree, Kerri worked as a physiotherapist in the NHS for 4 years, specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, working in a sports and orthopaedics department running high level rehab classes, initiating a shoulder rehab pathway and leading the hydrotherapy provision.
Kerri left the NHS to run the Academy Sports Science and Medical department at a League 1 football club and has gained great experience of treating lower limb injuries in 13-18 year olds. She now balances a caseload of amateur and professional sports people, victims of road traffic accidents and everybody in between!
Kerri is trained in sports & remedial massage, acupuncture and one-to-one Pilates. Having worked in sport she has developed skills in strength and conditioning, fitness programming and high level rehabilitation. She describes herself as a physiotherapist with a varied bag of tricks, believing individual people require an individually tailored approach to their treatment.
Kerri has a personal interest in treating running related injuries since completing the London Marathon in 2013 and 2016. This sparked Kerri’s scientific interest and so naturally she read extensively about all facets of running. Kerri utilises video and movement analysis to help diagnose and treat biomechanical running injuries as well as giving training and programming advice.
Kerri is currently studying via the University of Bath to further her knowledge and skills in Sports Physiotherapy.
