My role as a Clinical Coordinator at SPTS is to ensure that the clinical and professional practice within our team are upheld to the highest of standards.
I am an experienced neurological physiotherapist with a passion forneurological pilates.
My specialism is working with clients in the community, I strongly believe this is where we can make the most positive difference to an individuals quality of life.
My work within the community gives me the opportunity to challenge and progress patients beyond their capabilities at hospital discharge. I have taken patients skiing, adapted cycling, aqua aerobics and horse therapy. Treating clients in real-world environments gives patients the motivation for rehabilitation.
I am a specialist in neurological pilates, incorporating not only the benefits of increased strength, endurance, mobility and balance, but also integrating mindfulness which I know to be such a vital element in successful brain injury rehabilitation.

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.
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.
