I really enjoy working at Advanced Physio for a number of reasons. Firstly, we have a brilliantly equipped environment that allows me to do everything I can and need to with my patients to ensure they have a safe and effective rehabilitation from injury. We also have a great team and I really enjoy being able to teach, learn and share information and ideas. You know you're in a great environment when you look forward to coming to work each day.

I am a qualified Personal Trainers and Reformer Pilates instructor. I also have qualifications in Functional Strength and Conditioning, and have certifications in the Lyn Watson shoulder approach, and the McKenzie approach to spinal pain.

I enjoy treating injuries related to the Pelvis, Hip, Knee and Ankle and a special interest in pregnancy and postnatal treatment, as well as prenatal/postnatal exercise. I like diagnosing and treating conditions such as sacroiliac joint pain, pubic symphysis pain and gluteal tendon problems.
