The Back in Action Wakefield Physiotherapy Team
Sean Latimer MSc Advancing Physiotherapy, BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, MSc.
I studied my undergraduate degree in Cape Town, graduating in 1999. I worked in a private clinic for 2 years in Cape Town before coming to the UK. I worked in private and NHS hospital orthopaedic and musculoskeletal outpatient clinics for four years before starting at Back in Action Rehabilitation in 2006. I have gained a great deal of experience from working in a wide range of settings and departments and enjoyed working with a variety of health professionals. I believe in a patient centred approach and enjoy the challenge of treating a spectrum of patients from day-to-day aches and pains to high-level athletes. I feel patient specific education, treatment and rehabilitation programmes are what best facilitate optimal progress.
Ongoing professional development is core to the Back-In-Action philosophy. I have continued to develop my physiotherapy skills by attending postgraduate courses, reviewing current literature and in-service training sessions. I have completed a MSc in Advancing Physiotherapy at Sheffield Hallam University in 2017.
I have a personal interest in a wide range of sports but especially a passion for rugby, cricket and football. I still enjoy playing cricket (in the summer) and chasing after my children (all year round!). I have worked at a variety of events including the Argus Cycle Race and Ironman South Africa (in Cape Town) and worked with a rugby team at the University of Cape Town.
Alison Cadman, BSc Physiotherapy
I have been employed by Back in Action for 10 years and have been qualified as a physiotherapist since 1996 from The Robert Gordon University,Aberdeen.
I have worked at several NHS organisations and been specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy for over 18 years. I have worked in the private sector gaining experience in sporting injuries (through my employment at Wakefield Rugby) but also in ergonomics and in treatment of more complex pathologies.
I have gained post graduate training in acupuncture, have a diploma in McKenzie Mechanical Therapy and Cyriax. I am a dynamic clinician always striving to enhance my continuing professional development through attending courses, reading literature and reflection of my clinical practise on a daily basis.
I have broad range experience in the management of chronic pain and continue to further develop as a clinician with a variety of post graduate training including the commencement of a master’s module.
Within my NHS practise I regularly supervise students and lesser-qualified staff ensuring that clinical competencies are met in keeping with our professional bodies and policies. At Back in Action we strive to ensure our patients receive the quality care through ensuring our physiotherapy practise is evidence based and in keeping with National Institute of Clinical Excellence current guidelines.
My specialist area is spinal and I enjoy rehabilitation patients back to functional levels, using my broad base of clinical expertise incorporating pain management, core stability work, manual techniques and with a strong emphasis on ongoing self management as supported by current research.
I live in Wakefield, enjoy gardening and keeping healthy and active by cycling and running with my family.
Jaclyn Coleman MSc Sports Injury Rehabilitation,BSc(Hons) Physiotherapy, BSc (Hons) Sports Rehabilitation
I started my studies in Sports rehabilitation and then onto Physiotherapy from which I graduated in 2008 from the University of Salford. I have worked in the NHS for many years whilst completing my training and also after graduation gaining lots of knowledge skills and experiences treating a wide range of conditions from neurological, respiratory, paediatrics, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal. Whilst working in this environment I further studied for a Masters degree in sports injury and rehabilitation.
Outside of the NHS I also spent much of my time working in many different sporting environments including gymnastics / trampolining, judo, rugby, tennis, golf, rowing, karate to name a few. I regularly work now for British Gymnastics in all disciplines and as Chief Physiotherapist for the domestic program for British University sport. During my sports work I have worked at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and also the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing in 2014. Working in this wide variety of environments has only improved my practice to give high quality patient care.
I regularly attend training courses to keep up to date with latest research and gain other skills to enhance my practice and thus improve patient experiences such as manual therapy, manipulations, massage, taping skills and acupuncture.
