Dan Elsigood

Hi, my name is Dan and I’ve been a sports therapist for over 11 years now. My journey started at The University of Chichester, with a 1st class honours degree in Sports Therapy back in 2012. I initially started working at a clinic in Swindon called Swindon Sports Therapy and have since become the clinic director there. Alongside this has been my work with Newbury RFC, providing treatment and rehabilitation whilst also being on the sidelines during gameday.

My journey started back when I was a teenager after having recurrent shoulder dislocations, which ultimately led to surgery. It was this experience that introduced me to the profession and drove me to study Sports Therapy.

In some ways my treatment approach is very simple, identify what’s not doing its job properly and put that right. I use predominantly a hands-on approach to treatment, with a focus on the muscles and fascia. Combining this with the correct rehab exercises to drive long term change.

Outside of work I have a growing young family and when I get chance, I stay active with regular gym training and playing badminton locally. I’ve either played or worked in most sports so I can appreciate the demands needed to perform at a high level.
