Ms Ruth Cockerill
Job Title: Physiotherapist
Ruth Cockerill qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2004 and pursued a career working in sports, treating a variety of sports people from Netball, Football, Rugby, Boxing, Running, Cycling, Race Walking, Cricket, Golf and Weight Lifting to name a few. She has developed extremely effective hands on skills and rehabilitation prescription to return people to normal function and their training as soon as possible.
As well as having experience in treating elite athletes within Great Britain Squads she enjoys treating recreational and non athletes and believes everyone deserves to be treated as important as the next.
Ruth is an Ex International athlete who represented the England Netball National Team and is currently representing the Yorkshire Jets. She is our Netball Specialist Physio, understanding the types of injuries that occur, demands of the game and level of rehabilitation required to return to the sport.
She is now a mother of a little boy and balances work, motherhood and Netball. Due to this she has developed an interest in pre and post natal conditions/treatment/recovery.
Ruth says “People always tell me your body will never be the same again after having a baby but I don’t agree, you just need to know what you’re doing and commit to treatment/exercises. It’s hard work but it can be done!”
