Clinical Experience;
Three years initial NHS experience, before specialising in private practice musculoskeletal physiotherapy since 2012.

My Role As A Physiotherapist;
To educate, treat, & empower my patients, and to challenge them to make their health a priority in their daily lives. Understanding the details of an injury or condition is paramount in the recovery process, as in ones ability to manage their pain and symptoms. Ultimately, I strive to ensure people can live their daily lives fully, unrestricted by pain or physical limitation.

Chronic lower back pain, shoulder injuries, challenging patient perceptions of pain and formulating pain management strategies.

Advice Most Commonly Given To Patients;
1) The body is resilient, don’t be afraid to load and challenge it within your symptom tolerance

2) Vary the type of exercise you undertake, to gain a more rounded level of physical resilience

3) Pain isn’t always something to be scared of or worried about, it simply needs to be understood and managed correctly. Pain keeps us safe!

Sporting Interests;
Gym training, football, tennis, skiing
