Since qualifying as a physiotherapist in 1997 I have had a passion for musculoskeletal or sports injury type conditions. Working in the NHS for 13 years allowed me to develop a good knowledge base and become an experienced practitioner in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I also hold a diploma from the Cyriax Organisation in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic conditions and am trained in Maitland mobilisations and Mackenzie techniques.
It is my firm belief that many of our aches and pains may be attributed to postural changes and faulty movement patterns. I therefore use a combination of hands on techniques along with posture correction and exercises. The interaction between therapist and patient is vital in order to achieve and maintain a positive outcome.
Pilates is a great adjunct to physiotherapy; a mind-body centring technique concentrating on precision and quality of movement with breath control. In 2010 I completed the APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) Pilates Instructor training in General Matwork and Ante and Postnatal Pilates.
I offer one-to-one Physiotherapy and/or Pilates sessions plus Pilates classes for back pain or ante/post natal. One-to-one sessions are 1 hour for an initial assessment and treatment with follow up varying between 30 mins and 1 hour depending on need. Pilates classes are for 1 hour and run for 6 consecutive weeks; classes are kept small to allow all participants individual attention.
