Windsor resident Hugo Isaac, 35, is delighted to have been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the Central Medical Team at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This is the first time that osteopathy has been brought in as a core therapy for the Olympic athletes at the Games so it is a great honour for Hugo and the other osteopaths who fought off tough competition from hundreds of the country’s top practitioners. He will be working alongside the very best sport care doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors and sports massage practitioners.
The combined aim of the interdisciplinary team will be to heal, prepare and return athletes safely to the field of play in order to give the performance of their lifetimes after decades of intense training, focus and commitment.
Hugo is owner and principle osteopath of the Castle Clinic in Windsor, located at the Spire Windsor Clinic on Frances Road. He decided in 2001 to give up his hectic London life in the telecommunications industry to follow his passion as an osteopath. Hugo has always been interested in sports medicine as he represented his university (Bristol) at both squash and skeleton bobsleigh.
Hugo says: "This is a fabulous opportunity for me to work with elite athletes at the highest level of sport. It is even more exciting to be able to do this at the world’s most prestigious sporting event and to work with the country's best sports medicine clinicians”.
