I qualified in 1994 from Leeds University with a degree in physiotherapy. In 1996, I trained in Woman’s Health physiotherapy and achieved an advanced certificate in the treatment of the pelvic floor.I have worked at Spire for the last 18 years is and am an experienced woman’s Health Physiotherapist, running training sessions for GP’s and other allied health professionals. I have a particular interest in treating the post-partum lady and identifying any early issues that may potentially cause long term problems.I cover all areas of woman’s health; including post-operative breast and gynaecological surgery, pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions and abdominal separation (Diastasis Rectus abdominis), vulval pain (vulvodynia), all kinds of bladder and bowel dysfunction and pelvic floor disorders.I work closely with specialist consultants in my field and regularly attend multi-disciplinary meetings. I am currently training in urodynamics. Over the past 20 years I have gained a wealth of hands on experience; including working in a trauma unit in Minneapolis USA, managing a consultant lead pain management team and teaching ante and post-natal classes.After I qualified, I worked for Northampton Saints rugby club while working towards a certificate in orthopaedic medicine and a post graduate diploma in Sports physiotherapy. I was a clinical educator at the University of Hertfordshire until 2001 and have also worked extensively in hydrotherapy and post-operative rehabilitation.
