My name is Becca Schinagl and I am really excited to be the first female physiotherapist at Oakwood.
I graduated from the Masters Physiotherapy course at Northumbria University. I was given some amazing opportunities throughout my placements, gaining experience in Paediatrics, Women’s Health, and Critical Care, as well as a research-based placement in Neuromuscular Diseases.
Prior, I completed a BSc undergraduate degree in Sports and Exercise Sciences, which is where my interest in the anatomy of the body grew, understanding how it can be affected and treated in many different ways.
As a qualified Sports Masseuse, my understanding of management and treatment developed, and I am delighted to be offering Sports Massage alongside Physiotherapy at Oakwood.
Sam Mellor MCSP, Chartered Physiotherapist, HCPC
My name is Sam Mellor and I am a Chartered Physiotherapist working at Oakwood Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre. I completed my BSc Physiotherapy degree from University of Nottingham and since then have worked within the private sector, the NHS and elite sport. These variety of roles have helped me gain a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience in treating many musculoskeletal conditions.
Working alongside you, I want to restore your movement and function to get you back to your normal daily activities. Utilising hands-on physiotherapy techniques and exercise prescription, I aim to not only improve your symptoms, but tackle the root cause of your problem. I am passionate about empowering patients’ health and wellbeing and keen to keep people fit and active.
My special interest is the treatment and management of shoulder and ankle injuries.
I am a Chartered Physiotherapist at Oakwood Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre. I joined Oakwood in 2022, gaining a vast variety of skills to treat all musculoskeletal complaints.
Previously I played as a professional footballer for Aston Villa Football Club, but sadly my career ended due to a broken leg and compartment syndrome. After this I made it my ambition to help and care for others. Funnily enough many years ago I was treated by Ian for my injuries which finally led to me pursuing a career in Physiotherapy.
I was a Healthcare assistant throughout the pandemic and progressed my role to Therapy Assistant in the NHS. I am a qualified Personal Trainer, Sports Masseur and Physiotherapist.
During my training I was fortunate to gain experience in Acute Stroke Rehabilitation, Community Stroke Rehabilitation, Community MSK rehabilitation and Respiratory.
I care about every patient I treat and make it my aim to help them live a better life and achieve goals, whether that is by decreasing pain or
increasing movement. I hope to be a valuable addition to the team and the community, providing my skills and knowledge. I aim to learn from different patients and Physiotherapists.
Using the wide range of cutting-edge technology to support my treatment methods, I am to achieve the best outcomes for patients.
At Oakwood Physiotherapy, our goal is to help you be free from pain as soon as possible and enable an easy, pain-free return to normal daily activities. I am ready to support you on your journey to becoming injury free.
