Senior Physiotherapist

After Completion of Bachelors in Physiotherapy in 2005 I worked in a wide range of physiotherapy departments. Working with MSK conditions and sports injuries my wider experience provides a broad understanding and appreciation of the body’s systems as a whole. My keen interest in MSK conditions and sports injuries drives me through my specialisation in MSK. In 2011 I achieved an MSc in Applying Physiotherapy (MSK) from Sheffield Hallam University with an additional module of Sports Injuries Management. My interest in MSK and sports medicine has involved me in the treatment of people at all levels and across many disciplines.This process is aided by the use of Acupuncture and Sports Massage techniques.
