Mrs Lorraine Aitken


BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy

Specialises in

I qualified as a Physiotherapist with a BSc (Hons) in 1995. I started out working in a large hospital gaining experience in many different areas of Physiotherapy. In more recent years I have worked in Occupational Health which involved treating musculoskeletal conditions including many back and neck problems. This role also involved assessing workplaces and advising on work practices.

At Spire I am involved in the Back and Neck Rehabilitation service. We have excellent facilities at Shawfair in the purpose built gym with specialist equipment.

I am also a member of the Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapists and use acupuncture regularly as part of treatment programmes.

Personal profile

In my spare time I enjoy long walks with my two dogs and spending time with family. I am also a beekeeper looking after 5-10 hives. I am heavily involved in my local beekeeping association where I am a trustee and mentor.

To answer the most common questions – yes you do get stung sometimes and the amount of honey you get is variable depending on the weather and how good you are at stopping your bees from swarming!
