Training, qualifications & experience
Elizabeth Atherton Physiotherapist BSC (HONS) MCSP, AACP, MHPC
Liz is Director of Marple Physio, Lead Physiotherapist and owns the practice. She has a very broad skill set but particular expertise in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, from acute sports injuries to chronic painful conditions and post-operative rehabilitation.
Liz gradated from Salford University in 2007 with a First Class BSc Honours in Physiotherapy. Her early NHS work included rotations at Homerton University Hospital in London and East Lancashire Hospitals Trust. She specialised as a senior respiratory physiotherapist at Homerton (and still visits respiratory patients in the Marple community), then as a senior musculoskeletal physiotherapist at London’s Northwick Park Hospital, before moving to private practice at Marple Physio in January 2011.
Liz has trained with some of the leading lights in physiotherapy and has a wealth of post-graduate qualifications. These include acupuncture (she’s a member of Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapists), Pilates, advanced biomechanical assessment, advanced manual therapy and corrective retraining of movement dysfunctions. The latter is a system of assessment and treatment based on quality evidence (www.kineticcontrol.com). It looks at people’s movement faults and corrects them, thereby resolving problems in the long term and helping prevent their recurrence.
Liz has considerable experience working with rugby teams and has worked wonders on many a player, with everything from first aid to advanced rehabilitation and return to peak performance. With a specialist interest in treating musicians, she’s also a registered therapist with the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine.
