UCLan PaST adds more experience to the team

New staff member David Rhodes brings a wealth of experience to the UCLan PaST team.

Following a successful career as a secondary school PE Teacher and a Head of Department, David retrained in Sports Therapy in 2008, enrolling onto the MSc programme at UCLan.

He subsequently spent four years as a Senior Lecturer at Edge Hill University and has worked in a variety of elite, professional and semi-professional sports including football, rugby league and boxing.

David has also worked within private practice treating a variety of patients from sedentary individuals, recreational sports people and professional athletes.

He has a keen research interest in preventative strategies, conditioning and rehabilitation in sport.

In 2012 he enrolled to complete a PhD, titled Localised and Soccer Specific Fatigue and the 72 hour Temporal Pattern, which he is hoping to complete in 2016. David is a full member of the Society of Sports Therapy, GTC member and a HEA fellow.


  1. Congratulations on adding another skilled worker to your team. How long does it normally take to become a skilled physiotherapist? I want to take some internships this year to gain some experience for the physical therapy graduate programs I am applying for. My plan is to become a skilled physiotherapist like the rest of you. Are there any tips that you wouldn't mind sharing to help someone get to that level of skill?
