Chartered & Registered Physiotherapist.
I trained at the Oswestry & North Staffs school of Physiotherapy and have 20 years experience in the NHS and 14 years as a private practitioner.
My Special interest is in all musculo-skeletal problems including back & neck pains, sports injuries, sciatica & nerve pain, headaches, joint and muscular pains and fibromyalgia etc.
I worked for 20 years in the NHS in South Wales and Herefordshire hospitals and became a Clinical Specialist and Extended Scope Practitioner. I worked alongside the Orthopaedic Surgeons in their clinics. I provided training to other physiotherapists and health professionals and triaged patients sent from the GP for Orthopaedic opinion. I also helped to trouble shoot patients who presented with problematic and often chronic pain syndromes.
I use all hands on techniques, including Myofascial release, Positional release, Muscle energy techniques and Acupuncture. I also use Proprioceptive sports taping and tailored exercises to enhance recovery.
I always look for the source of problem which is often located away from the actual site of pain and if this is left untreated the problem will continue to reoccur. I check alignment of the body and use techniques to correct this issue with specific strengthening and stretching to maintain the change. Correct alignment allows for more efficient functioning of the body and the ability to resolve adaptive pain patterns.
In 1996 after travelling around the world I studied Myofascial Release which in turn led on to a Diploma in Craniosacral Therapy. I combine all the specialist skills of Physiotherapy with the soft tissue techniques to enhance treatment and hence recovery. As my appointments last generally 1 hour I am able to spend time assessing the body thoroughly to find the main issues which lead on to a persons symptoms. Treatments are comprehensive and tailored to the individual needs of the client.
