Cintia Low-Gameiro

Chartered Physiotherapist

MSc, BSc (hons), MCSP, HCPC reg, ACPAT. A.

Cintia has been involved with horses from a young age. Prior to her physiotherapy training Cintia trained and worked with dressage riders in the U.K, France and Portugal. She competed her own Lusitano stallion at Advanced Medium level dressage and enjoys all equestrian disciplines. Cintia has had experience schooling a variety of horses from youngsters to schoolmasters, completing a British Dressage Apprenticeship in 2006.

Following her interests in human and equine movement, Cintia qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2010 from the University of Brighton and then specialised as a senior musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. Having worked full time in both the NHS and private sector, she has experience in musculoskeletal disorders, orthopaedics and sports injuries.

Pursuing a life-long ambition, Cintia went on to complete an MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy at the University of Liverpool. Her Masters dissertation investigated equine spinal movement and symmetry, with the aid of inertial sensors, during aqua treadmill exercise.

Since completing her MSc Cintia has worked for a busy practice of ACPAT Physiotherapists based in Surrey, assessing and treating horses from all disciplines, including race horses, international eventers, show jumpers, dressage horses and family pets. By further developing her skills in human physiotherapy and sports injuries, while working at a private clinic, Cintia has become well qualified to treat horse and rider as a combination. She gained post graduate training from the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute) and has run classes for horse riders. She also trained in Acupuncture for human athletes with the AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists).

In 2017 Cintia re located to Oxfordshire, where she established CLG Physiotherapy, treating horses and riders, principally in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. She also works as a senior Physiotherapist at Progressive Physiotherapy in Wantage, treating a range of musculoskeletal disorders and sports injuries.
