Kate Yeoman is a physiotherapist at Sheffield Sports Medicine. She graduated from York St John’s university with a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Science & Injury management and as part of her degree she also obtained a Level 3 in Sports Massage. Kate has experience with working with Huddersfield Giants Rugby League first team and York City Ladies Football team. Her enjoyment of working and learning alongside the sports medicine team resulted in her completing a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy, resulting with a chartered status.
Kate had a 9-year career as a competitive swimmer with the City of Sheffield Swimming Squad which fuelled her ambition to understand how to treat, rehabilitate and train athletes. Her swimming career taught her the physical and psychological demands of competing and training at an elite level and the devastating impact an injury can have. She believes that you can overcome any injury or psychological barrier with dedication, a positive attitude and most importantly a great team with the knowledge to support you.
For this reason Kate has dedicated the past 6 years of her life to develop an understanding of how to optimise the neuromusculoskeletal system and improve performance and prevent the risk of injury. Kate has been taught by Dr Michael Lee and has a passion to help individuals in ways that were not available to her during her swimming career. Throughout her her training, Kate has come to understand that treating the area of injury only acts as a temporary solution and investigating the cause of the injury is the key to reducing further risk of injury, improving health and optimising performance. Kate holds a strong belief that continuous learning, evidence-based practice, hard work and the support of a great team anything can be achieved.
