Susan Pattison

Chartered Physiotherapist and Director


I am a highly experienced neurological physiotherapist with a passion for the rehabilitation of patients living with neurological conditions including stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy but with a special focus on head injury. The depth and breadth of my experience in adult head injury is from intensive care to community rehabilitation.

It was my awareness of the lack of community services that lead me to set up private practice in 1998 to meet this need. I describe myself as a people magpie and have evolved a team of talented therapists who share my passion and enthusiasm.

I am an enthusiastic supporter of UKABIF and in 2019 was awarded the Chair’s Certificate of Merit.

SP Therapy Services will celebrate its 25th year in 2023, and I am proud of our reputation for clinical excellence.

I strive to actively support my clinical team to be the best they possibly can and to share their clinical expertise by presenting posters at relevant conferences.

  • How can physiotherapy help adults living with Acquired Brain Injury?

    Although every individual with an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury) is different, the main focus of physiotherapy is to improve a persons ability to move and maximise their independence. To achieve this a physiotherapist will work to:

    • Improve posture and walking;
      Improve balance and reduce the risk of falls;
    • Strengthen muscles, and reduce muscle stiffness;
    • Mobilise joints and improve the quality of movement;
    • Improve respiratory function and challenge the cardiovascular system;
    • Provide education and training to support teams and families.
  • How can physiotherapy help children living with Acquired Brain Injury?

    Children with ABI differ from adults in that their brains (their movement control centre) and their musculoskeletal system (bones and muscles) are not yet fully developed. ABI impacts on a child’s ability to control movement making muscles floppy (low toned or flaccidity), stiff (high toned or spasticity) or uncoordinated (dystonia and ataxia). Children learn through movement they explore play and learn about, depth, shape, texture, volume distance and harm by moving through their environment. When moving is difficult learning becomes a greater challenge.

    Stiff, floppy or uncoordinated muscles pull on the immature and growing skeleton and this can cause developmental problems such as scoliosis, contractures and joint problems especially in the hips.

    Physiotherapists work to re-educate more normal movement patterns and treat and manage the muscles to maximise the child’s opportunity to learn through movement, and reduce the impact of the pull on growing bones

    Our physiotherapists can work with a child at school or at home, we have physiotherapists working in our Greater Manchester, Lancashire and  Yorkshire communities.
