Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity. — Hippocrates
Dr Sarah Davies is currently re-deployed to the NHS to help manage the critically ill during this Covid-19 crisis. Around her new schedule, she is available for telephone consultations regarding all musculoskeletal injuries.
Dr Sarah Davies has expertise in all types of musculoskeletal injuries, including sporting, dance and occupational trauma. She became interested in understanding movement whilst undertaking a Masters degree in Classical Acting at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. She subsequently completed specialist medical training in Sport and Exercise Medicine in 2012, by which time her interest was well and truly focussed on joint and musculoskeletal preservation.
As a Consultant, Sarah has worked with British Athletics, and both the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics and Paralympic Games. From 2012 to 2017, she was based at the English Institute of Sport, where she enjoyed her roles as Chief Medical Officer for ParaShooting and Paralympic Medical Officer for British Athletics. In 2017, she added to the scope of her practice, joining the Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden, London, looking after dancers between the ages of 14 and 19 years. In 2019, she has also been working with the Royal Ballet Company. She aims for all her dancers to optimise their performance despite stress and strain injuries and illnesses.
Dr Sarah has published work within the field of SEM and is an examiner for the membership exam for the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM UK). She enjoys maintaining her fitness in the gym, focussing on strength and conditioning and yoga, as well as triathlon and winter sports.
