I graduated in 1994 with a BSc (Hons) degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Ulster. I worked in several hospitals and clinics before arriving in Basingstoke in 1997 to work at the North Hampshire Hospital. In 2001 I joined The Hampshire Clinic and am proud to have spent nearly 15 years there as Clinical Lead/Deputy Manager. Now, after more than 25 years as a Physiotherapist, almost entirely based in Basingstoke, ‘PK Physio’ is my first solo venture. I hope to use the experience I have gained to provide patients with the services they expect and deserve.
My speciality is musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy which can involve anything from headaches to toe pain and anything in between. I completed an MSc in Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2001 which involved clinical placements and examination by some of the most renowned clinicians of the time. I have been a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapist (MACP) since 1998 – a group promoting excellence in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy. In 2015 I was awarded an MA in Applied Professional Research for my study into the treatment of ‘Frozen Shoulder’.
Outside Physiotherapy, I have competed at senior international level in Basketball, the highlight being a Commonwealth Championship bronze medal in 1991.
My personal sporting experience certainly helps me to understand the frustration of being limited by pain or injury.
