Elizabeth is a Chartered Physiotherapist graduating with distinction from King’s College London. Elizabeth has an interest in a range of musculoskeletal injuries, with a special interest in running related biomechanical issues and injuries. Since graduation, she has worked with a number of specialties including high level sports injuries, occupation and lifestyle related pain, pre- and post- natal women (pregnancy related pain and/or continence issues) as well as running a specialist headache and migraine clinic (with a focus on acupuncture).
She has a wealth of experience working both in the NHS, currently working for St Georges University Hospital, the major trauma centre of the South West of England, rehabilitating patients following a variety of complex surgeries, as well as the private sector utilising a range of treatment modalities. Whilst Elizabeth is trained and makes frequent use of treatments such as deep tissue massage and trigger point release, electrotherapy, acupuncture/dry needling, taping, Maitland and Mulligan mobilisation techniques, she is a firm believer in therapist led strength and conditioning of a client where appropriate. This ensures optimal and efficient recovery, be that return to sport or pain management. She is Pilates trained and includes it in her treatment plan with nearly all patients.
She has ingrained compassion towards a person’s wellbeing, from a holistic viewpoint, which is evident from her BSc in Human Nutrition from University of Dublin in 2012. She believes that this gives her a unique multi-angled approach to the management of clients, that focus’ not only on the client’s current injury, but the prevention of any ill-health in future, where possible.
