MEET LOUIS JONES
Shoreham sports physiotherapist
As one of the leading sports physiotherapists in Shoreham (and indeed the south-east) Louis Jones is evolving the concept of body health to one of holistic wellbeing. His mission is not just to treat injuries once they occur, but to inspire people to maintain and improve their overall fitness, thereby preventing damage in the first place.
Through his private practice in the heart of Shoreham, Louis treats sporting injuries and provides effective pain relief through both targeted physiotherapy and acupuncture. His vision is to expand into a holistic practice that encompasses all aspects of health, to inspire change and promote better living.
BSc Honours Degree in Physiotherapy
Louis has over 14 years’ practical experience, having qualified from the University of Brighton in 2001 with a BSc Honours Degree in Physiotherapy.
Practical knowledge of sports specific injuries
As a sportsman himself, Louis has first-hand knowledge of the aches, pains and more serious injuries that affect sporting professionals.
Passionate about prevention as well as treatment
Louis’ vision is to inspire fitness and wellbeing and to educate people about good posture and injury prevention.
The journey from sportsman to sports physiotherapist
Louis’ passion for sports and fitness began at an early age – at just 12 years old he was competing at national level in track and field athletics, cross country and road running and was playing football at Sunday league level. During this time he developed his first sporting injury, which led him to Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club physio, Malcolm Stuart at the Goldstone Ground. This early experience ignited an interest in Louis about not just the enjoyment and competitive side of sport, but about the impact that sports could have on your body. Ultimately, this is what inspired his career in treating and preventing sports injuries, and his dream to work as a physiotherapist in professional sport.
As Louis grew in age, he also grew in ability. Despite this early injury, he joined Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club in 2002, working with both the 1st team and Reserve team. In 2005 Louis left his role to pursue his main passion; running. He travelled to Colorado to undertake intensive high-altitude training and in 2008 he won National Gold Team medals at both Half Marathon distance and in the National 12-stage Road Relay Championships for Newham & Essex Beagles, alongside none other than Olympic Gold Medalist, Mo Farah.
Louis’ sporting experience eventually led him back to Shoreham, where after working in two private practices, he established his own business, Louis Jones Physiotherapy, in 2011. His mission is to build a holistic practice that encompasses all aspects of health and that inspires change and promotes better living. In the meantime, he is certainly not sitting still – in between working and spending time with his family, Louis’ long-term goal is to complete an Ironman distance triathlon and to break 2h.30m for a Marathon.
