Anna Jenkins

Anna has many years’ experience in musculoskeletal and sports injuries with a special interest in endurance sport, particularly rowing, cycling, running and triathlon.

Anna qualified with a BSc (hons) in Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham in 2002, and gained distinction in a Masters in Advanced Sports Physiotherapy at University College London in 2007, passing  the MACP exams to become a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).

Anna has worked for many years in both the NHS in Oxford and in elite sport including with GB rowing and as the physiotherapist to the Oxford University Boat Club. As a rower herself, she spent many years doing weight training and developed an interest in strength and conditioning for performance as well as return from injury.

Personal experience with various injuries over the years has given her insight which she uses on a daily basis with patients whether for return to elite sport or everyday life.

Anna's Master's project investigating the female athlete triad (RED-S) in female lightweight rowers was published in Medicine and Science and Sports and Exercise and in the BMJ Open.

Anna presented this research at the American College of Sports Medicine annual conference in Indianapolis in 2008 and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine annual conference in Belfast in November 2008.

Anna rowed competitively for many years, trialling for the GB rowing team and in 2012 she won the senior single scull's event at Henley Women's Regatta. She then turned to triathlon and competed in the GB age-group triathlon team at the triathlon World Championships in Auckland in 2012 coming 9th in her age-group (30-34 sprint distance) and London 2013 coming 10th (Olympic distance) whilst also cycling competitively with the Zappi's women’s cycling team.

After a break to have children, she moved to long-distance, winning her age-group at Ironman Wales in 2018. A stress fracture nearly prevented her from racing but she completed Ironman World Championship, Kona in 2019.
