About Carolyn Kent MSc MCSP SRP BSc (Hons)
Senior Chartered Physiotherapist and Sport Scientist
Carolyn is our Senior Physiotherapist and is an experienced clinician working with athletes and the general public.
A former Under 16 and Under 20 international football player; Carolyn’s ability and love of football earned her a place with W-League semi-professional side The New Jersey Wildcats and then a 4 year scholarship to the College of Charleston in South Carolina. During this time she qualified as a sports scientist. Carolyn’s path into physiotherapy was in part guided by her own experience of injury when she broke her leg. After recovering from this and unfortunately in her first competitive game back she ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament and underwent surgery and 12 months of rehabilitation. A 2 year total absence from the game gave her a unique insight of the patient’s experience of rehabilitation. It is this experience which drives her to ensure her patients’ are treated holistically and with the highest quality care available.
Since qualifying in 2009 Carolyn has remained heavily involved in many sports especially football. She was the 1st team physiotherapist for junior club Bonnyrigg Rose and also ran clinics at Heart of Midlothian’s Academy and Lasswade Rugby Club. She is currently the physiotherapist for Scotland Under 15,16 and 17 Women’s football teams. She is a member of many organisations including the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sport and Exercise Medicine and the Association of Orthopaedic Chartered Physiotherapists.
When she’s not involved in physiotherapy Carolyn is a keen surfer, snowboarder and mountain biker.
