Karen Black Physiotherapy
Eden Nail & Beauty
32 Station Road
I am a Chartered Physiotherapist with over 25 years of experience in musculoskeletal disorders.
I believe that helping my patients to understand their condition and empowering them to aid their own recovery is all important.
Following a detailed assessment, an explanation of the condition is given where possible.
I will usually give some exercises and advice in order for patients to help self manage their condition between treatment sessions and long term.
Each individual exercise program is put together using an online software program and can then be emailed to patients, where they can then view the exercises in video form, or exercises can be printed and posted out.
I also have a very hands on approach to treatment which can include soft tissue massage, joint and nerve mobilisations and acupuncture.
If a patient is unable to attend the clinic, I offer home visits or a full telephone consultation service.

Following 14 years working in the NHS including both inpatients and outpatients, I have spent the last 14 years working in private practice, also including working on two Physiotherapy telephone triage helplines. I spent a year working in an acute hospital in Calais, Maine, USA In the late 1990's.
I now work in my own private practice as well as working in two GP practices participating in the 'Physio First' initiative where a patient sees a Physio initially rather than a GP if they have a musculo-skeletal problem.
