About:

I am a physiotherapist with 26 years clinical experience graduating from Kings College London in
1995 with a BSC (Hons) Degree in Physiotherapy. I have worked in many NHS London teaching
hospitals and have over 17years experience in the private sports injury/ rehabilitation sector.

I set up my own company Physiorhythm in 2014 to enable me to practice holistically and have sufficient time with clients to assess accurately and comprehensively to offer a structured rehab plan.

My Past Sports include Triathlon where I also qualified as a swim coach. I have done a few marathons and enjoy training towards events. I also love surfing, Kayaking and wild swimming!

My specialities include Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation (spinal, head-toe!), Orthopaedics and post- operative rehab as well as Chronic pain. I have first-hand experience of the need to strengthen when returning to fitness after having children, so also specialise in running injuries and postnatal rehabilitation.

 I am passionate about Sports Injury Prevention, so my Assessments include looking at Posture, Core strength and flexibility plus Biomechanics. If you have pain which doesn’t resolve with stretching/massage you need an accurate diagnosis, so it does not become chronic (anything over 12 weeks). I give sports specific exercises in my rehab programmes and use tape to facilitate or inhibit muscle groups or purely to improve Posture awareness/ Proprioception.

Acupuncture is extremely beneficial for pain relief (acute and chronic) plus trigger point release, wellbeing and stress management. I have been practising Acupuncture for over 14 years and it enables me to offer an holistic approach focusing on the whole body and not just a body part.

Functional Recruitment of your core is also essential, so I give advice on the right balance of exercise to do incorporating work, leisure, and lifestyle postures/routines.
