Q: What's an area of special interest?

A: My area of special interest is the pelvic floor/pelvis - such a vital structure in so many ways and affected by childbirth , lifestyle, menopause, sport and so much more - it can be the missing link within other problems eg back pain. I have worked within MSK for most of my working life and have found with this back ground I am able to see the link between pelvic floor disfunction and other issues in many cases. I have 3 children of my own I also have a special interest in Ankylosing Spondylitis and have a background training in pilates mat work which I find very helpful in exercise prescription together with more recent evidence on strength training and resistance

Q: Where did you study?

A: I studied at Birmingham University over 25 years ago where she qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist .  I started my career working within large London Teaching hospitals before moving to Northamptonshire with my family I continued to work within the NHS and privately. I'm a specialist in pelvic health but have years of experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy (back/shoulder/chronic pain, trauma etc) so can offer a holistic approach. It was because of my many back pain patients who confided in me about their pelvic issues that I chose to become an expert in this field of physiotherapy in order to help the silent sufferers. I'm an affiliate member of POGP (pelvic obstetric and gynaecological physiotherapy) and part of a growing group of specialist interest physiotherapists in Northamptonshire, who regularly meet as part of a continuing education programme learning about any new developments and ways of helping patients manage dysfunctions which arise within the pelvic floor and back complex.

Q: Why have you joined Back and Body?

A: I have joined the back and body to enable me to help more patients suffering with pelvic health issues - an area of treatment I have chosen to specialise in as there is so much physiotherapy can help with and patients who are affected by problems have such an impact on their life . I am pleased to be able to do this within a very professional practice

Q: What's your greatest achievement?

A: I have three children who are my proudest achievement and I love to support them. I am often called upon for my professional skills as two of them are extreme runners and all enjoy a variety of sport - which has created quite a selection of injuries!

Q: What's 1 Item you'd take to a desert Island?

A: My desert island luxury would be a massive swing i could sit or lie on and some paper and pencils to draw the tree
