Emma Bonilla

My name is Emma, I’ve been based at the Wrightington clinic since 2012 and after seeing a variety of injuries over my time with Summit, I would still say my main interest and success is knees!

This dates back to my final year of university, where I focused my dissertation on training plans to help prevent Cruciate Ligament damage in the knee. I have expanded this understanding and experience over the years in assessing, treating and taking clients through rehabilitation back to function (both conservative or pre/post operation e.g. arthroscopy or knee replacements).

We see many triathletes at our clinic in Wrightington, and although I am not a runner myself, I have learnt through experience how lost clients can feel when injury affects their training and performance – or worse their pain has forced them to stop running altogether! I am determined with all of my patients to educate and support them to return back to their full fitness. However, we don’t just see sporting injuries. We have clients of all ages and abilities.


Having two kids to keep me busy at home, I am fully aware how hectic life can be. When pain or restriction affects these day-to-day tasks, these are just as important to them as to an athlete trying to cross the finishing line. It is important to me to build a trusting relationship with each patient and provide the best clinical service I can – no matter what the injury or goal is.

Over the years, I’ve had experience with tennis, football and rugby clubs but primarily my experience is in private practice. I love this job as much today as I did when I first qualified. I enjoy working with people and treat each case as a puzzle that needs solving. Recovering from an injury requires teamwork between you and I so I look forward to working with you.
