Mrs Jill Mackenzie
Highly Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist
Grad Diploma Physiotherapy MCSP HPC
I qualified in Physiotherapy from The Queen’s College, Glasgow in 1984. I worked at Glasgow Royal Infirmary for 7 years in various rotational positions achieving Senior I in Rheumatology. In 1991 I immigrated to Florida, USA and spent 6 years working in both a hospital and an out- patient private setting.
I attended many courses which allowed me to travel and gain experience in musculoskeletal conditions. In 1997 I returned to the UK and I started working at Spire Manchester Hospital in 1998. I have spent the last 15 years in my current role, growing professionally and watching our department develop and grow into a fantastic facility now at our new Didsbury site. We can now provide more services than ever before. Our gym is extensive for rehab, we offer a variety of pilate classes and are able to provide hydrotherapy to assist and improve recovery in a variety of conditions.
For the last 10 years I have successfully developed and provided a physiotherapy service at Spire’s satellite clinic in Hale. This clinic is open on a Thursday between 8.00 and 2pm. Many of our consultants at Didsbury have clinics at Hale and it gives patients another option of where they wish to receive their treatment.
I have a keen interest in musculoskeletal conditions particularly in neck and lower back pain, sports injuries and post-surgical conditions.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Jill Mackenzie at Spire include:
I practice at Spire Manchester Hospital as well as their clinic in Hale, Cheshire.
