Pro-Am Sports Injury Clinic is run and owned by Sports Therapist
Jenna Wheatman BSc(Hons)MSST
Jenna graduated as a Sports Therapist from the University of Teeside in 2005 and joined the UK’s leading professional body in this field “The Society of Sports Therapists”. She gained a wide skill base in various fields, particularly musculoskeletal work and sports injuries, her approach is very practical.
Jenna’s interests have always been directed to sport. Athletics is Jenna’s main passion, competing for over 20 years at various events, the last 10 years specialising in the hammer throw. In summer 2019 it came to that hard decision of retiring and finding something new to explore. If not in the clinic you will see her out and about training with her new running buddy (Castor an English Springer Spaniel) in their new venture into canicross.
Her involvement in sport instilled a passion to learn more about performance particularly injuries and why they occur. Jenna started her journey by studying Sports Science at Yorkshire Coast College, in her second year she also completed an advanced Body Massage Diploma and setup as a massage therapist in this same year.
Most of Jenna’s work is with Scarborough Athletics Club helping the runners when injury occurs and giving guidance about injury prevention methods and training. This also includes a conditioning session held every Wednesday which is open to non members as well.
In addition to running and athletics Jenna has experience with a variety of sports supporting many athletes in tennis, football, swimming, rowing, rugby, cycling and many more.
Jenna’s work in Scarborough is about keeping people active no matter what age or ability. She also deals with many non sporting related injuries like neck and back pain.
