Sakshi Rai


Chartered Physiotherapist – MSc BSc HCPC MCSP

I graduated from DIBNS in India in 2019 with a Bachelor in Physiotherapy and moved to the UK to further my studies, graduating with a Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine from the University of Nottingham. I am a member of The Health and Care Professions Council and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

I currently work in the NHS and regularly see patients with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and diseases. I enjoy utilising my clinical reasoning skills and manual assessment procedures to formulate and deliver individual physiotherapy treatment programmes. These are based on sound knowledge of evidence-based practice and treatment options. I am also very capable of forming well-founded prognoses and recommending best courses of action, as well as creating negotiated goals that lead to thorough discharge plans.

My MSc studies enhanced my clinical history-taking and examination skills to enable accurate diagnoses in individuals with musculoskeletal injuries or illness, and for those who would like to exercise, or for whom exercise would be beneficial. I take a holistic approach to patient care and understand the specific physical attributes required to participate in a variety of sports. I promote the highest level of ethical standards within sport by contributing to sporting organisations and teams, and have covered several county football matches, including Nottinghamshire U18 Vs Derbyshire U18 T20. I have also worked as part of the Medical Team in The Montane Lakeland 50 & 100.

I enjoy promoting improvements in public health through encouraging physical activity and exercise in the general population and my interest in sport led me to achieve the Football Association (FA) Intermediate Trauma Medical Management in Football (ITMMiF) in July 2021.

I have worked regularly in private practice during my masters studies and thoroughly enjoyed getting the experience of working with private patients. My aim has always been to work hard and watch patients and athletes healing physically and mentally. I am extremely grateful to be a part of the Square One Team, which gives me the opportunity to provide help and service to the local community, and to the best of my ability.

What our patients say

I've been going to Square One for treatment of my own injuries for several years and I've always ben amazed at how quickly they can get me going again. I've been prompted to write a review today though having been to see Jennie at Square One with my 11 year old son, who has pains in his knee. The way she spoke to him, treated him and helped him was exceptional. She spoke directly to him the whole time, in a language he could relate to and made him feel comfortable, and confident they can help him get better. I've always know these guys were very very good. Today showed me they're the best. Thank you Jennie, Jenine and team.

What our patients say

I have had a long-standing issue with severe sciatica for more than 12 months due to a prolapsed disc. It had got to the point where I needed some professional help and advice so as to move forward with the injury. The improvement in a matter of weeks has been amazing. I will totally recommend this company to anyone that needs physiotherapy. Great value for money based on the profound effect made to my everyday life.

What our patients say

I saw Laura today after suffering from severe back pain, since Saturday afternoon, I have been unable to walk without pain. Laura assessed, diagnosed and treated me with such professionalism and expertise. I am now able to walk with much more ease and I have been given exercises to do before she sees me again on Friday. I am so grateful that you are remaining open throughout this difficult time. Thank you.

Karl Elliott

What our patients say

I have been to Laura twice with severe back pains caused by a problem hip. She has sorted out the pain with the minimum fuss. I would strongly recommend the clinic, the booking system is easy and everyone is charming and friendly, not to mention a super physio.

Humphrey Spaight

What our patients say

I have been suffering with tension headaches on and off for a couple of years now. I tried everything to get them to go away to the point where I thought they would never go and it was really taking over my life. I saw Jenine on a recommendation and I finally have them under control. Jenine is really friendly, easy to talk to and a great professional who really knows her stuff, I would not hesitate in recommending to anyone who needs help.
