What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a profession whose aim is to encourage and support the return to normal following illness, surgery, disease or trauma. It can be effective in the treatment of a range of muscle, joint and nerve conditions.

Physiotherapists use a wide range of techniques such as manual therapy and exercise prescription to maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

We can offer expertise in upper limb and hand rehabilitation, pain management programmes and post-surgical recovery. Many of our therapists are also trained in Pilates, Acupuncture and Joint Manipulation, carrying out thorough biomechanical assessments to enhance and optimize function.

We have strong links with many orthopaedic consultants and have an excellent track record in the rehabilitation of upper and lower limb sports injuries. In addition we can offer pre and post natal treatment and advice as well as vertigo and balance rehabilitation with our vestibular specialist.

How can I help you improve your health?

I completed my Physiotherapy degree at Cardiff University in 2000. In 2006 I completed a two year post-graduate certificate in manual therapy at Curtin University in Australia and I also became a full member of the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine (SOM).

During my Physiotherapy career I have worked extensively within the NHS and the private sector. I have a wealth of experience in the treatment of both sports specific and non-sporting injuries, including spinal pain.

Previous roles have included working at a specialist knee injury clinic, the Jonathan Webb Clinic. There, I developed a breadth of experience in the assessment and rehabilitation of both routine and complex knee injuries. In addition during another previous post I gained significant experience in the treatment of whiplash related disorders and I was involved in the creation of a successful telephone triage service for musculoskeletal injuries.

My treatment approach is tailored to each individual with particular attention given to functional goals. I use a combination of techniques in my patient management, which include mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue release, specific exercise rehabilitation and acupuncture. Outside of Physiotherapy I enjoy running, playing football and squash. I am also a keen snowboarder and a coffee fanatic!’

How can I help you improve your health?

I graduated from the University of the West of England in 2007 and have worked for the NHS over the last 7 years. I have specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy for the last 5 years treating multiple body dysfunctions and complex injuries.

I use a mixture of manual physiotherapy techniques including Maitland joint mobilisations and Mulligan movement facilitation and have been on McKenzie courses for spinal pain which allows me to teach my patients self-management techniques that can reduce future episodes of pain and promote long term back care.

I have experience with Hydrotherapy and found the use of water based exercises most effective in the rehabilitation of orthopaedic injuries and rheumatological disorders. I really enjoy the variety of conditions that patients can present with and I am constantly using the latest medical research to deliver the most effective treatment techniques.
