Vicente Garcia

Physiotherapist

Qualifications and Experience

Vicente studied Physiotherapy at Jaen University (Spain) for 4 years, and then moved to Madrid to study his Master’s degree in Sports injuries. During this time, he had the chance to meet some of the best Physiotherapists in Spain including Sebas Truyols (former Physiotherapist at Atletico de Madrid), Per Tesch (creator of Yo-yo Technology) and Fernando Galan (current Physiotherapist of the Spanish football team) just to name some.

After that, he moved back to his hometown where he worked for some private clinics and football teams, doing pitch-side Physiotherapy, before deciding to move to England and further his career. In Bournemouth, he’s been working in private practice, alongside Phoenix handball.

Skills

Sports injuries management and treatment, repetitive strain injuries, dry needling, Shockwave therapy, taping and sports massage.

Passions

Vicente loves football and has been playing for more than 20 years in many different teams. Currently, he plays for a team of 1st division in the Bournemouth’s Church League. He also likes padel tennis, but only gets to play when he goes to Spain, as this sport is not well known across the UK yet.

Why did you become a Physiotherapist?

I became a Physiotherapist because I suffered myself from many injuries when I was younger, and spending time with Physiotherapists created my interest in this field. I wanted to learn how to improve my muscular health, and this eventually became my passion and career.
Where would we find you in your spare time?

When I’m not working, I enjoy playing Xbox or just watching Netflix series. I love continuing to advance my knowledge of the English language, so I spend a lot of time listening to it.
