Our Physiotherapy Team
I qualified in 2000 from Salford University. I have worked in private practice now for Sixteen years and my time is now split between Saddleworth Physio Clinic and my position as a Clinical Specialist Physio for Pennine Musuloskeletal Partnership.
Post Graduate training has involved a diploma in Society of Orthopaedic Medicine and injection therapy.
I am a credentialed Mckenzie Therapist for spinal diagnosis and rehabilitation, and provide Caudal Epidural injections for sciatica within the MSK service. I have an MSc module in Advanced Physiotherapist practice as well as Acupuncture. I recently have researched and developed all the Musculoskeletal Orthopaedic pathways utilised by Pennine MSK for all the Oldham Orthopaedic patients.
I have previous experience working for Oldham Athletic FC and Stockport County FC and personally have an avid interest in health and fitness and long distance running.
I attended Manchester Metropolitan University and Graduated with a First-Class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy in 2016. I Began my career working at Manchester Royal infirmary in a rotational post which involved working across several specialities including; intensive care, acute medical and trauma and orthopaedics, before I went on to specialise in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
Currently I am working as a specialist MSK physiotherapist in a community MSK clinic in central Manchester, seeing a wide range of patients with varying conditions including; lumbar and cervical spine pain, ligament injuries of the knees and ankles and osteoarthritis and tendinopathies of both the upper and lower body.
Alongside my NHS work I am also the Physiotherapist for Saddleworth Rangers Rugby club, which involves me assessing a range of acute and at times serious injuries, which requires me to have quick decision-making skills. These injuries have included; head trauma and concussion, fractures, dislocations and torn ligaments and muscles.
In my leisure time i enjoy partaking in exercise and playing golf. I have a specialist interest in sporting injuries and I plan on developing my MSK knowledge further in the future by completing additional specialist courses.
