Welcome to Cathedral Physiotherapy, delivering excellence, experience, and enthusiasm in Exeter. Based in the leafy central location of Southernhay, Cathedral Physiotherapy is directed by the Exeter physio Sarah Moore, who has 20 years of experience, 17 of those specifically within the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Excellence is ensured by the post graduate skills obtained including an MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from Cardiff University, membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), the Musculoskeletal Association of Physiotherapists (MACP), the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) and PhysioFIrst, as well as being regulated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). This helps to maintain the practice at the pinnacle of Physiotherapy in Exeter.
Experience is guaranteed following 20 years working in the NHS and private sectors as a qualified Physiotherapist. Twelve in which she worked as clinical lead physiotherapist at the Royal Devon and Exeter (NHS) trust, prior to running Cathedral Physiotherapy. She has a wealth of experience having worked in, among other areas, Outpatients, Occupational Health, Accident and Emergency, Trauma, Orthopaedics, Pain clinic, Rheumatology, Hydrotherapy, Haemophilia, and post Cancer rehabilitation, and specialises in complex conditions which may have previously failed conservative treatment.
Enthusiasm motivates Sarah, who is absolutely passionate about providing the best possible care for your condition. She strongly believes that people should not allow their difficulties (pain, weakness, loss of function, previous diagnoses) to define them as individuals, and works with her clients in a friendly and positive way, to help them achieve their functional potential and goals.
