Nicola Rutherford

Physiotherapist BSc(Hons) MCSP MAACP

I graduated as a Physiotherapist back in 1999 from Sheffield Hallam University.

Having always been involved in sport, my formative years were reasonably competitive, starting out in gymnastics then switching across to diving as a relative veteran at the age of 14 and represented GB – I still have my tracksuit to prove it to the family!

My passions for my sports, physiotherapy and human movement are what drove me to get involved with professional sports. I’ve worked with Plymouth Albion, Plymouth Raiders in the past and more recently with British Diving.

Plym Physio started in a rented room back in 2006 and took the big step of moving into premises in 2016
and we’ve been steadily growing since then. I’ve had a daughter and this triggered the innovation of ‘Physi-go mum’. This class sits alongside the other classes I have developed at the clinic – Plym Pilates – rehab style movement efficiency pilates and latterly ‘Physi-go run’.
We feel there is much more to come from Plym Physio in the quest for helping people to get better so watch this space.

I hung up my swimsuit a long time ago but picked up some running shoes instead. Now a keen runner I have completed the London Marathon four times and also Boston in 2013, qualifying as a ‘good for age’ athlete.  More recently I got into triathlons before having my daughter and managed a relay half-ironman last year with the goal of going solo. Soon. Ish!!

I’ve recently joined the team at Plym Physio and am really excited about realising my dream of helping people recover from injury and rebuild lives. Having worked in the personal training sector for years I can bring exercise skills across to patients as well as proving another level of skill to help more people in our community.
