Mrs Clare Johnston


Pink Ribbon Post Rehab

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.
