To inspire my clients to enjoy life to the fullest in a pain free and healthy fashion.
Craig Hardingham, Founder and Director
I believe a healthier you is a happier you and good health can be achieved through many facets. I get to see the detrimental effects pain or injury have on people daily, which can range from not being able to exercise to not being able to walk. I also get to see the transformations people make when they start to live a life vacant of pain and injury.
I am a big believer in our unique treatment method here at Injury Active, which has constantly evolved since opening our first clinic back in 2013. It is a system built on treating you as an individual, listening intently, educating, honest conversations and hard work.
I try to lead by example by being the best version of myself I can be. I love running, weightlifting and all things fitness related and can’t wait to get involved in some more sporting events in the coming years that challenge me. It makes me feel energised and I love taking control of my own health. When I pick up injuries, I understand the profound effect it has and it’s why I am always so empathetic towards people in pain. I will never stop treating because I love seeing people improve.
I strongly believe that a great sports therapist has a passion for fitness, has the ability to coach and loves to learn.
To forever learn and keep you lovely people smiling by helping you return to do what you love pain free.
Jessica Woodhouse, Director
Our bodies are designed to move. Movement is a key to a lot of things such as our physical and mental well being. Over the years I have developed my practice in clinic to focusing on movements not just as part of rehab but as part of treatment too. Moving makes us feel good and it’s interesting to see how much our injuries love movement too. I believe that moving efficiently in anything we do, pain can be decreased. Creating that happy environment for our bodies is what I strive to do in clinic.
My role at IAC is to look after my lovely patients at the Bishops Stortford and Cambridge clinics and to help develop the IAC team. We are a team focused on learning. I love learning, I love a question and I’m an absolute problem solving geek. I’ve always been a huge lover of pretty much any exercise and have tried out many sports throughout my life, from competing in dancing from a young age to now focusing on hockey and running. I play division 1 hockey for Cambridge South Hockey club and run 20+ miles a week with an aim to get a sub 1hour 45 half marathon time.
I am a huge people person , I love painting, watching NFL and travelling the world. Life is about experiences and I like to help my patient’s injury experience become more of a way of learning about their bodies and allowing themselves to be the best person they can be pain free. I learn a lot from my patients and as I continue in clinic to help my patients everyday I learn more about how to treat different injuries individualised to the person to meet their own individual needs.
To play football this year while continuing developing my skills and knowledge as a therapist.
I believe the most valuable thing anyone can take away from a session is education regarding training and injury. Therefore, I strive to give you as much information as I can to help you overcome injury and reduce the risk of sustaining one in the future. In order to continue improving my skills I carry out CPD by attending courses and refreshing current knowledge with the IAC team to ensure you get the best level of care.
My hobbies include football and spending time with friends and family. I love listening to music and exploring new foods.
Going forward I would like to continue building my skills, which will enable me to treat a wide range of injuries.
To give people the power to move better, move more and do the things they love.
I strongly believe movement is the best medicine and an effective way to manage and improve pain. I am passionate about giving people the tools to become stronger, move better and with more confidence to allow them to live healthy and pain free lives. Taking an individualised, task-specific approach to assessments and treatments is hugely effective.
As a therapist there are constantly things to learn and I love to do this with the IAC team, sharing, discussing and challenging ideas with each other.
A bit about me – I love to run and nearly went stir crazy whilst rehabbing an ankle injury through lockdown. I’ve ran a couple of half marathons, Cambridge 2020 being my favourite, a few more and then the next challenge will be a full marathon.
I am grateful to be in such a rewarding job surrounded by wonderful clients and patients. I look forward to developing my clinical skills and client relationships further at Injury Active and aim to keep spreading my enthusiasm for movement and exercise.
