About me

Having qualified in 1999, I commenced my Physiotherapy career in the NHS based at The Lister Hospital, in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, gaining broad-based experience working within Musculoskeletal Outpatient, Orthopaedic, Elderly Care, Respiratory (including Intensive Care and High Dependency Units), Medical, and Community Paediatric Physiotherapy teams.

I then chose to specialise in Neuro-Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy within the hospital, namely Physiotherapy relating to bones, joints, nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. I treated a wide range of conditions affecting children and adults, ranging from neck and back, joint and soft tissue problems to post trauma rehabilitation (including fractures and whiplash), post orthopaedic surgery, and sports injuries.

I also established and ran exercise classes for people with back problems and osteoarthritis of the knee, and provided the Physiotherapy input to a ‘Falls Clinic’ for the elderly, which included an exercise class to improve balance, strength and mobility.

I then began undertaking work in the private sector, treating people with a variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, such as those referred to above, in private clinic and occupational health settings, treating a wide range of people, from school age to the elderly, and patients have included professional and high level amateur sportsmen.

This eventually progressed to my establishing and running my own Physiotherapy Practice, ACHIEVEPHYSIO, based in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire, treating private individuals, whether self-funded or insurance funded.

In addition, Physiotherapy services are provided to the Occupational Health Department of a major national retailer covering a number of its sites working with individuals engaged in retail, distribution (including warehouse and delivery), office, catering, and vehicle maintenance activities.

Finally, court/pitchside cover has been provided to youth basketball and rugby teams and at a youth international tennis tournament.
