I am the physiotherapist for the first female hockey team at the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona.

I have a background in physiotherapy and sports therapy for a wide range of age groups. I have covered positions at the Joaquim Blume Residence in Barcelona, where I worked with teenage athletes from various disciplines. I’m also a physiotherapist for the Spanish veteran hockey team.

My specialisation is injury prevention, with the aim of identifying risk factors for specific age group and for the particular sport being practiced. I am particularly interested in new technology and collecting data on athletes and their motor abilities to create an optimal, personalised physiotherapy plan.
