I qualified as a Physiotherapist in Glasgow in 1985 and completed a post graduate MSc in Applied Biomechanics at Strathclyde University in Glasgow Scotland in 2005.I am also presently a visiting lecturer in Physiotherapy at GCU in Glasgow.
I spent 27 years working in hospitals in Wales and Scotland as a Physiotherapist gaining experience in a variety of clinical areas including Orthopaedics, A and E and Paediatrics,before retiring from the NHS to concentrate on my private Physiotherapy clinics.As well as working in the hospitals i have worked extensively in sport with the Celtic Academy, Scottish Football Association, Scottish Rugby Union and the Professional Jockeys Association.
Throughout the years I have written numerous Physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols with Glasgow Orthopaedic consultants.Patients can follow these protocols after Surgery, including knee replacement, hip impingement and anterior cruciate ligament (acl) reconstruction.I have also written Physiotherapy ex programmes following common injuries of the knee, hip, ankle, also for patients with kneecap pain and acute back pain.I also have a particular interest in the Physiotherapy management of patients following facial palsy (bells palsy).These programmes are available in the patient resources section on this website for each joint.
I am a Physiotherapist who strongly believes that patients attending for Physiotherapy should take responsibility for their own health, and my aim is to help in assisting them in achieving their maximum potential following injury or surgery.My Glasgow Physiotherapy clinics are located in Cardonald and presently at Hampden sports injury clinic.
I have close links with Physiotherapy clinics outwith Glasgow, and will happily recommend another Physiotherapist, if it is more suitable from a clinical or location perspective.
