Nicki Bolingbroke

Nicki trained at Brunel University, qualified in 1992 and arrived in Guernsey in 1994.

Since arriving, she developed a keen interest in shoulder rehabilitation and sports injuries and more recently, has become passionate about cycling and related lower limb pathologies.  Nicki is also a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.  This is a Western Medicine approach to acupuncture which she finds is a superb adjunct to be manual therapy she offers.  In 2013 Nicki trained in London to become a BikeFit Pro.  She has been performing her clinical BikeFits locally, helping everyone from the novice cyclist to the professionals.

Shotokan karate is one of Nicki’s other interests.  She is a third Dan black belt and can teach it which affords her a deep understanding of Martial Arts-related injuries.

During her time time on Guernsey, Nicki has undertaken a lot of voluntary work including several Island Games -particularly with women’s football.  She spent 3 years with Guernsey Rugby Club and more recently gave physiotherapy support for the very successful Guernsey’s Strongest Competition.

Joining Avenue Clinic at the Indoor Sports Centre is a very exciting prospect for Nicki as, with access to the gym and working as part of a multi-disciplinary progressive clinic, she feels she has the best facilities to make the most of the skills she can offer her patients.
