- Lisa O’Hara
I am a physiotherapist with 24 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 15 years experience in the private sports injury/ rehabilitation sector.
I set up my own company Physiorhythm in 2014 to enable me to practice holistically and ensure I keep up to
date with current clinical reasoning by doing regular CPD/Courses . An ex Triathlete and swim coach, I started running as part of Ellie’s Buggy Runners over 11 years ago and have since done a few marathons.
My specialities include Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation (spinal, head-toe!) especially running injuries
and postnatal clients. I have first-hand experience of the need to strengthen when returning to
fitness after having children. 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
does not go away with stretching/massage you need an accurate diagnosis so it does not become
chronic. I give sports specific exercises in my rehab programmes and use tape to facilitate or inhibit
muscle groups or purely to improve Posture awareness.
Acupuncture is so beneficial for pain relief (acute and chronic) plus trigger point release , well-being
and stress management. I have been practising Acupuncture for over 12 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 key so I give advice on the right balance of exercise to do
incorporating work, leisure and lifestyle postures/routines.
