My philosophy when it comes to physio is that everybody is individual and requires a tailored experience. From our initial discussion, assessment and throughout treatment, exercise planning, advice and goal setting – I’ll do my all to ensure everything is optimal for you.
Having always been really interested in sports, immediately after A-levels I completed my Personal Training Diploma and trained clients within a gym. I continued my studies and qualified in 2017 with a first-class honours’ degree in Physiotherapy. Afterwards, I went straight into a master’s degree in Human Nutrition which I graduated from with distinction in 2018.
I am incredibly interested in treating all musculoskeletal issues, with my area of particular interest being knee issues including; osteoarthritis, patella dislocations, ACL rehabilitation and meniscal injuries.
Alongside clinical work I am also a tutor on the Sports Injury Management degree programme at Peter Symonds Higher Education College. I’ve been fortunate enough to be invited as a speaker at a number of conferences where I have lectured on knee injuries, osteoarthritis and the role of nutrition within physiotherapy.
Physiotherapist & Personal Trainer
I have been an active person all my life, and In 2002 I qualified as a Personal Trainer. I enjoy setting fitness goals with people and seeing them achieve these, from weight loss to beat their personal best times in races and events. I have always believed in the importance of health promotion and injury prevention and I wanted to build on my Personal Training skills to enable me to go one step further and so qualify to be a Physiotherapist.
Since qualifying as a Physiotherapist I set up The Physio, Fitness and Wellbeing Company which changed its name to Alan Law Physiotherapy some years ago. This combines all the aspects of health promotion that I feel passionately about. I am registered with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, the Health Professionals Council and have full Professional Indemnity insurance.
In my spare time, I am still enjoy running, playing cricket and cycling. My love of sport developed when in 1986 when I started playing for Horsham Cricket Club. During my 27 years with the Club, I have captained both the first and second team and I am currently a Vice President.
Hi my name is Sarah Fiddaman, and I’m the personal trainer here at Alan Law Physiotherapy.
As a REP certified level 3 personal trainer and studio cycle instructor I have been able to transfer my lifelong passion for sports and fitness into my job. I bring my enthusiasm and knowledge to each of my client’s sessions and truly get a buzz from helping people achieve their own personal fitness goals and challenges, whatever they may be.
Through my own personal journey as an athlete, I have gained a keen interest in helping people learn how to train with chronic injuries and even achieve new personal best. Listening to each client and treating them as the individuals they are.
As a working parent of two active children I know, life sometimes throws us curve balls and therefore flexibility with your fitness training is essential. I do my best to ensure effective, fun and achievable sessions that work with each client’s life.
