I qualified in 2008 from Teesside University with a 2:1 in Physiotherapy. I commenced my career in private practice in Australia. I developed a real interest in sports and work based injuries. I qualified in Western Acupuncture and Dry Needling and started using Pilates as a rehabilitation tool, especially effective for long term problems. Upon returning to the UK, I have worked in array of settings; private practice, hospitals, GP practices, gyms and within peoples homes. I use my knowledge in Pilates (DMA and APPI) and exercise rehabilitation to fully rehabilitate patients after injury or illness. I apply a 'whole body' approach and endeavour to solve a problem by finding the root cause. I'm a very 'hands on' practitioner and use a variety of mobilisations techniques, such as Maitland, Mulligans and some osteopathic techniques. I am also trained in sports massage and use a variety of massage techniques such as trigger point release, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques and deep tissue. In addition, Acupuncture/Dry needling can be used to target difficult areas. I also have a special interest in Parkinson's and I am a qualified PDWarrior Instructor; these are bespoke exercises designed to challenge neuromuscular system and therefore increase neuroplasticity (changes to the body and brain). This is especially beneficial for people just diagnosed with Parkinson's. I can help with assessing posture related problems and can provide a full workstation assessment too. More specific information can be found under services, or contact me if not listed and ill see if I can help in any way.
