Mrs Helen Taylor
BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy
I am a Senior Physiotherapist working in outpatients at Spire Manchester Hospital. My specialist interests include: ante and post-natal physiotherapy, pelvic floor rehabilitation, clinical Pilates, post-operative physiotherapy, acupuncture and shockwave therapy.
After qualifying in 2003, I initially worked in the NHS and gained a broad range of experience in musculoskeletal, neurological, respiratory and paediatric physiotherapy. I joined the physiotherapy team at Spire Manchester Hospital in 2008 working across both the inpatient and outpatient departments.
Following the birth of my children, I developed a keen interest in ante and post-natal and pelvic floor physiotherapy. I have completed many post graduate courses in these areas.
In 2013 I began my Pilates training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI). I am now a fully certified APPI Pilates instructor and have completed additional training in ante and post-natal Pilates. I teach clinical Pilates and post-natal Pilates classes at Spire Manchester Hospital each week.
I am a certified Mummy MOT® practitioner.
I am also qualified in the application of Acupuncture for pain relief and in the use of shockwave.
