Benn Digweed

Benn first gained his BSc (hons) in Sport Science from Liverpool John Moores University, then achieved his pre-registration Masters in physiotherapy from Southampton University in 2009.

Benn initially worked in the NHS as a rotational junior therapist, during which time he worked part time in sports. The sport teams included; Chelsea FC academy, GB boxing, Hampshire Cricket Club and Southampton Solent University’s Talented athlete programme. From this work he gained the role as Head Physiotherapist at Solent University where he set up and ran a private clinic for staff, students and external customers. This service involved supporting Solent University’s scholarship athletes of their High Performance Academy.

During this last role Benn completed a part time PGdip in Neuromusculoskeleal physiotherapy at Brighton University to gain entry to the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapist (MACP). He has also completed many courses including cycle fitting, manual therapy, acupuncture, podiatry and running injury screening. Between his work at Keele University, Benn also works for Manchester City football Academy.

Outside of work Benn is a keen cyclist, runner and very average triathlete.

Vicky Pearsall

I qualified from The University of Birmingham in 2003. I undertook my junior rotations in multiple specialities in the NHS for 2 years then moved into private practice to pursue my love for Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. I completed my MSc in Manual Therapy at Coventry University in 2012 following my passion and interest in the hands on treatment used in Physiotherapy. During my time in clinical practice I specialised in treatment of spinal and shoulder conditions. I gained expertise in manual and manipulative therapy, sports, occupational health and rehabilitation post surgery. I managed a diverse team of therapists in private practice and helped to grow the practice during my treasured 9 years there.

I joined the School of Health and Rehabilitation full time in September 2014 as a Teaching Fellow in Physiotherapy. I achieved my PG certificate in Teaching and Learning in September 2015 and am currently pursuing my MA in Teaching and Learning due for completion in summer 2018. I took on the role as Programme Lead for the Undergraduate BSc Hons Physiotherapy course in June 2016.
