Your initial 45-minute appointment involves an assessment and treatment. We assess your pain and symptoms to determine the cause of these symptoms, then recommend a treatment plan for you and begin this treatment. Follow-up appointments are 30 minutes. Your physiotherapist will advise how many appointments you will need but you can stop treatment at any time.

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.

How can I help you improve your health?

I graduated from London’s Brunel University in 2012 with an Honours degree in Physiotherapy before working in the NHS for around 6 years. During this time, I completed my core rotations before specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I was fortunate to work in some of London’s leading hospitals as well as in community-based settings where I was able to progress my career, before moving back to Bristol.

I have completed further training in areas such as acupuncture, and in 2021 I am undertaking MSc level training in corticosteroid injection delivery. Outside of my physiotherapy role with Nuffield Heath, I am also involved in sport with the Bristol Rovers FC youth academy, as well as with the armed forces, which brings added insight to my practice.

My areas of clinical interest include trauma rehabilitation, particularly involving the knee. As I work across all of Nuffield Health’s Bristol sites, I enjoy being able to use the gym and exercise facilities as a treatment option. I also have experience in the management of persistent pain from previous roles, which helps when managing more complex presentations.

  • BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
