Maryke qualified as a physiotherapist in 2003. She has an MSc in Sports Injury Management and is currently based at one of the UK’s leading centres for sports medicine. While Maryke is a specialist sports physiotherapist, she also treats a wide variety of regular injuries.
She is also a ICF registered Health Coach and has a passion for helping people live healthy, active lives!
She takes an evidence-based approach to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries. Her Master’s Degree dissertation is on the causes of Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITB) – the bane of so many runners. In her daily practice she continues to apply this academic rigour by staying on top of the latest research.
Maryke was a member of the medical team at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the 2015 European Games in Baku, the IAAF World Championships London 2017 and the World Para Athletics Championships London 2017.
She has also provided pitch-side support for various sports teams in East Sussex, including Brighton and Hove Albion FC’s Academy and has been fortunate enough to work with elite distance runners in Ethiopia. This earned her a Silver Accreditation with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports and Exercise Medicine (ACPSEM).
As a marathon runner and triathlete Maryke is also familiar with the everyday challenges that active people face when trying to recover from an injury. “I love all sports but much prefer to exercise outside and off-road. These days I swim, bike and run.”
