Sara is a Spanish physiotherapist from Pamplona, the city known worldwide for the “Running of the bulls”. Physiotherapy has been her vocation ever since she was badly injured at the age of 12 while playing football. Sara graduated from the International University of Catalonia in Barcelona in 2004. In 2005, Sara decided to widen her knowledge as a therapist by doing a 5-year post-graduate course in Osteopathy (from the E.O.M. in Madrid). Sara has also trained in Dry needling and DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization).

After 9 years working in Musculoskeletal, Sports and Road Traffic Accident Rehabilitation in Pamplona, Sara moved to London with her partner with the aim of learning English and sharing knowledge with other professionals from all around the world. She spent 4 years working in busy and demanding clinics in the City of London and South Kensington (including Physical Edge), where she gained a great deal of valuable experience.

Sara is very excited about her move to Bristol and we are delighted that she is joining the team at Keith James Physiotherapy. Her wide range of therapeutic tools will quickly take the patient to a pain-free state. Sara believes treating the symptoms is only the first step in the rehabilitation process; tackling the problem at its root and involving the patient in their own recovery are also key factors to provide a more durable solution.

In her spare time, Sara likes running, climbing, playing tennis and also paddle tennis (a rather popular sport in Spain which combines the fun of tennis with the trickiness of being in an enclosed court).
