During this time Adam was responsible for the treatment and care of a variety of patient types. Work here involved the treatment and return to sport of elite athletes, post operative patients, the busy active professional, and the patient with everyday neck and back pain.

For 12 months Adam was employed by the British Army and was responsible for keeping 1500 soldiers fit and ready for deployment.

Since graduating in 2012, she has gained valuable orthopedic experience working in a variety of musculoskeletal private practice clinics.
