Sports Injury Therapy

Charlotte Voss - BSc (Hons), Dip ST, MSST

Charlotte VossCharlotte graduated from the University of Hertfordshire with a 1st class honours degree in Sports Therapy. She is currently head of the medical team at Hertford RFC and when she has time , is a visiting lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire. After working for a variety of sports teams and at private clinics she started Active Body in 2008 in order to provide people with a center that specialises and excels in the treatment of sports injuries.

I wanted to create a clinic that focuses on returning clients to the sport they love. I noticed there are so many cases where peoples specific requirements are not met because to often generic programs are given to all patients and treatment plans are not tailored to take into account the individual or the demands of the sport. This unfortunately often results in re-injury and more time off.

Charlotte is passionate about rugby, especially the Wales side and her specialist interests clinically include shoulder injuries and proprioceptive rehabilitation in knee injury.
