A passion for helping others led me down the path of physiotherapy into a career that allows me to provide high quality healthcare for patients.
As a professional physiotherapist since 2014, I have gained masses of experience in the human field, mainly within neurological, orthopaedic and musculoskeletal settings.
In 2017 I studied the Veterinary Physiotherapy Masters degree at Hartpury University enabling me to transfer my human physiotherapy skills into animals. I have a keen interest in the rehabilitation of small animals, especially dogs.
Experience to Date
My love for dogs and passion for their well-being led me to studying Veterinary Physiotherapy, at Masters level. I love being part of small animal rehabilitation, engaging with animals and observing them progress. I have experience rehabilitating a variety of dogs from working or performing to pets. Also, dogs that present with a variety of diagnoses including back pain, orthopaedic and neurological conditions.
It definitely is the best of both worlds being able to treat human and animal patients!
Following graduation from physiotherapy (honours degree), I have worked in two major trauma centres. Working at both Derriford and St George's in South London, has given me a vast amount of experience in physiotherapy. I have mainly been involved with neurological and orthopaedic rehabilitation within the NHS. I am now working privately within the musculoskeletal setting in Cornwall. I have a varied caseload of patients, presenting with a variety of conditions from sports injuries, arthritis, nerve issues, joint pain and spinal problems.
