katie1For me, being a physiotherapist is such a rewarding role, meeting and getting to the root cause of my clients’ pain, putting them at ease and helping them to achieve their goals and reach their full physical.

I’m lucky enough to meet a range of people with different physiotherapy needs, from sports injuries to problems with general balance and mobility, work related disorders and trauma. It makes every day interesting and a challenge!

I treat acute injuries and long term biomechanical problems in clinic, and I offer home visits to those who can’t get to the clinic or who wish to remain as independent as possible around the house. We’re certainly not just a sports injuries clinic!

People tell me my enthusiasm spurs them on to achieve their goals with renewed vigour – that’s the greatest reward for me – I couldn’t have chosen a more enjoyable career.

In my sporting life
Keeping fit is a major part of my life, and I’m pushing my fitness to the limit by entering the Tough Mudder this year – looking forward to raising a bit of money for Help the Heroes at the same time, and fingers crossed I make it around the course in one piece!
I’m an occasional horse rider and badminton player, currently attempting to reach the club standard that I achieved as a teenager.

Some of my qualifications
I hold a First class BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy and have undertaken the following training, so I can offer the best service to my clients:

  • BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, First class honours
  • The UK 2013 Discover Physio Series – finding the underlying cause of acute and longer term problems.
  • David Butlers ‘Explain Pain’ – supporting long term and chronic pain disorders.
  • 2012 Physio First Conference – When is it appropriate for athletes to return to sport, treatment and sports rehabilitation.
