I specialise in treating complex and long-term injuries, and I believe in addressing the cause of your problems, not just the symptoms. Everything in your body is connected, and my job is to be a detective, to work out not just which bit of you hurts or doesn’t work the way you want it to; but why this is happening, and then to work with you to begin your journey back to your best possible state.
As a physiotherapist, my job is to help people to enjoy living in their bodies – especially if you’ve had injuries or surgery, or if you live with a chronic health condition.
When you come to see me, we’ll start with a thorough assessment session, during which I’ll use my unique Health & Performance Pyramid to analyse you holistically. We’ll discuss how you already manage your health, and then I’ll assess your whole body, looking for structural and mechanical issues.
I really do mean I’m going to look at your whole body, and that’s irrespective of where your symptoms are. You see, everything in your body is connected; and that means that while your tennis elbow might be coming from an issue with your elbow, equally it could be sore because it’s compensating for a problem in your neck or your pelvis. I’ve seen people whose ankle tendinitis originated in their neck, whose knee pain came from their feet, and whose hip pain followed on from a shoulder injury – and all sorts of combinations besides.
I will identify the right treatment for you, and we will create a plan together to deliver it. If the right treatment isn’t physiotherapy, I will help you to find the right expert: I work closely with some of London’s top orthopaedic consultants, sports doctors and pain specialists.
