The Movement Works: About Us

Sarah Mottram MSc MCSP

Sarah is the founding  Director of The Movement Works. The clinic was set up to provide a centre of excellence for movement assessment and training. Sarah's expertise in this field comes from 25 years of clinical practice, teaching and research. Sarah is an educator, clinician and researcher who has principally focussed upon the influence of uncontrolled movement on the recurrence of pain and deficits in performance.

Sarah trained as a physiotherapist and in 1995 studied for a Masters of Science at University College London. She is a Director of Movement Performance Solutions, which through innovative evidence based solutions educates and trains sports, health and fitness professionals to better understand, prevent and manage musculoskeletal injury and pain that can impair movement and compromise performance in their patients, players and clients. She lectures internationally for Kinetic Control and has developed The Performance Matrix with Mark Comerford.

Sarah is particularly interested in the integration of differing movement therapies as a means of retraining uncontrolled movement, something evident through her certification in Pilates, GYROTONIC® and the highly contemporary discipline ‘Garuda’. 

As a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton she is actively involved in research on the shoulder and evaluating the assessment and retraining of uncontrolled movement. Sarah is the author of the text "Kinetic Control: The Management of Uncontrolled Movement" (Comerford & Mottram, 2012) - published by Elsevier and has published a range of papers. 


Sarah is a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
