I have worked as a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 20 years, and joined The Cloisters in 1993. Early in my career I began to specialise in treating spinal pain, eventually spending 4 years teaching part-time on an MACP course at Nottingham University. I now concentrate on my clinical work at The Cloisters, and continue to specialise in problems associated with the spine, including work related upper limb disorders, which often have a spinal element. I have also developed expertise in the treatment of conditions not often associated with Physiotherapy; headaches, dizziness and Bell’s Palsy are all conditions that can respond well to Physiotherapy.
I have worked as a physiotherapist at The Cloisters since 1997, and have a special interest in spinal problems and I have a Post Graduate diploma in manipulative therapy. Many of the patients I treat have neck or back pain, together with associated shoulder, arm, hip and lower leg symptoms. I also have an interest in RSI (Repetitive Strain Injuries). Whilst treatment at the clinic will often include ergonomic advice, I also visit homes and places of employment to offer more specialised advice. Other areas of interest include the treatment of dizziness, facial pain with associated postural problems and headaches, and post fracture treatment. I am also registered with the Acupuncture Association of Chartered physiotherapists and can offer acupuncture for pain relief.
I have been qualified for over twenty years and spent ten years working in the NHS before joining The Cloisters. Whilst working as a Senior Physiotherapist in Coventry, I began to specialise in lower limb injuries, biomechanics and rehabilitation. I now have a special interest in treating lower limb injuries, and in particular sports injuries resulting from overuse. I also have experience in treating patients following hip, knee and ankle surgery. From 2004 to 2010 I worked for the English Women’s Golf Association looking at performance enhancement, injury prevention and sports screening. Having gained a great deal of golf related experience whilst working with one of the England Golf Coaches, I am happy to treat golf related injuries and offer a Golf Screening Service at the Clinic.
Having qualified in Coventry in 1986 I initially worked in the NHS in London, specialising in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. After taking a postgraduate diploma in manipulative therapy, I moved to Reading in 1995 where I took a senior position in the outpatients department. Whilst working alongside shoulder consultants in the orthopaedic clinic, I developed a special interest and gained expertise in the treatment of shoulder problems. I then moved into private practice in the Reading area. Since moving to Leamington Spa in 2008 I have worked at The Cloisters, where my main areas of interest are the treatment of shoulder problems, and back and neck pain. I have also taken a course in acupuncture for musculoskeletal problems. I enjoy teaching and have a part time position at Coventry University as a visiting tutor, where I assist physiotherapy students and their supervisors on clinical placements.
I graduated from Coventry University with a first class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy. I then worked in a major NHS hospital in a wide variety of physiotherapy disciplines – from orthopaedics to neurology. I subsequently joined a busy and well-respected private physiotherapy practice in Berkshire. During my time there I have been able to help hundreds of satisfied patients. I have a hands-on approach, and use a variety of techniques including mobilisations, soft tissue therapy and manipulations. It is often important to supplement this with exercises for my patients to do between treatment sessions. In addition, I am fully trained in acupuncture, which I can use as an adjunct to my treatments, and I am registered with the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. In addition to being trained in the latest physiotherapy techniques, I am also trained in Pilates and have an interest in postural correction and education. Furthermore, I have worked successfully with consultants and doctors in rehabilitating patients post-operatively.
I graduated from Coventry University with a first class honours degree in 2008. From there I began working in a busy NHS hospital gaining experience within a variety of different physiotherapy settings including orthopaedics, neurology and cardiology. During this time I was also responsible for providing physiotherapy for a semiprofessional football team which included pitchside assessment and rehabilitating players back to full match fitness. Since then I have worked in both GP clinics and hospital settings gaining vast experience in assessing and treating spinal, upper and lower limb conditions. I also have significant experience in rehabilitating patients post orthopaedic surgery. I am experienced in teaching Pilates, both on a 1:1 basis and in a class environment. Prior to starting at the Cloisters, I developed an interest in treating patients with chronic low back pain.
I graduated from Brunel University with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy in 1995. Following this, I worked in the NHS in Suffolk and then Warwickshire developing my interest and expertise in Neurology and elderly care. I had a change of direction in 2004 by becoming a Clinical Tutor at The University of Birmingham. Whilst at the University I successfully completed an MSc in Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation and a PGCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher education. I continued part time clinical work alongside University employment. Last year I took the opportunity to return to a clinical career and have since started my Pilates training through APPI. I am Bobath trained and trained in the use of Functional Electrical Stimulation. Hence I am now, teaching Modified Pilates Classes, including a seated class. My specific area of development with the Cloisters is in the Community setting, providing assessment and treatment of clients within their own environment, including residential and nursing homes.
I qualified in 1985 and worked initially for the NHS in a number of hospitals in the West Midlands, where I developed an interest in the treatment of neurological disorders, both in hospitals and in the local community. During this time I treated patients with a variety of neurological disorders, including strokes, multiple sclerosis, head and spinal injuries and Parkinson’s disease. Leaving the NHS, I became the Physiotherapy Manager at the Helen Ley Care Centre in Leamington Spa, where I developed the physiotherapy service. I joined The Cloisters in 2006, where I assess and treat patients at the clinic, or, when appropriate, at their home. I am qualified to assess and provide Functional Electrical Stimulation to help people with a dropped foot to walk. I am also a Bobath trained therapist with a special interest in the treatment of Strokes and Multiple Sclerosis.
I qualified in Manchester in 1984 and worked for the NHS until 1991. During this time I developed my special interest in Neurophysiotherapy and worked as a Senior Physiotherapist alongside consultants treating a wide variety of patients following brain surgery, spinal surgery and with other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), stroke, head injury and spinal injury. I joined the team at the Cloisters in 1997 and assess and treat patients with neurological conditions at the clinic or, if more appropriate, on a domiciliary basis in their own homes. I have also worked at Helen Ley Care Centre, the Amanda Bevan Head Injury Unit in Coventry, and Myton Hospice. I still work in the NHS in a local specialist community neuro-rehabilitation team and have a good knowledge of local services and links with other health care professionals. I am a Bobath trained therapist and a member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists Interested in Neurology (ACPIN).
