I qualified 40 years ago and am still excited by my job and love the fact that I can still make a difference.
I have worked in musculoskeletal clinics for over 18 years, using my expertise to treat both acute injuries and chronic conditions. Prior to that, I worked extensively as a domiciliary physiotherapist and with the elderly or disabled in various Care Homes.
Several years ago, I studied acupuncture in order to add to my clinical expertise and discovered the role that energies play in our health and our ability to maintain our recovery from musculoskeletal problems. This led me to study Tui Na, which is the use of massage and mobilisation techniques to influence the flows of energies around our bodies. Adding this to my physiotherapy skills, I am amazed by what it is possible to achieve.
Many of my patients have complex long-term problems and have been told that they have to live with and manage their pain. However it is always extremely rewarding to make a difference and improve patients’ quality of life.
I have been incredibly lucky. I chose a career that I love and also have the good fortune to work with a very talented team of physiotherapists at The Howard Clinic.
