Chartered Physiotherapist, HCPC Registered
I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2008 from the University of Plymouth, I have worked in the NHS full time since but moved around a little before settling in Kings Lynn!
I now work as a Senior Physio in Rheumatology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn where I manage some specialty clinics and a caseload of patients with Rheumatology conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis and Hypermobility Syndrome. I also work with a large number of people with persistent pain and I have a keen interest in managing all these conditions.
In my spare time I am part of The Physio Matters Podcast Team. This is a free podcast providing continuing professional development to Physiotherapists from around the world. Through this I have been privileged to meet and learn from a number of world leaders in research and clinical practice as well as making connections with fantastic therapists whom I am able to discuss clinical scenarios with.
I have a hectic family life trying to balance my two sons who are perpetually active and my favorite hobby, cycling. I am particularly partial to a pint of ale and I combine these two hobbies together as often as possible!
I always aim to work in collaboration with the people who see me for Physiotherapy, the self management of conditions long and short term is essential to maintaining function and the reduction of pain.
Exercise and activity management is a mainstay of my therapeutic approach, with the ultimate goal of regaining function and managing pain. General health advice and education around a condition are also extremely important in the management of any condition and I pride myself on providing this as required by each individual in a personalized and meaningful way.
