I am a private physiotherapist practising in Glasgow and I am available for appointments either at my clinic in Cardonald or at Hampden Physiotherapy Clinic.
I 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. I have a particular interest in helping patients to avoid surgery for as long as possible, through simple exercises and advice. I also specialise in preparing patients if they require hip or knee joint replacement and provide a comprehensive aftercare plan so that they make as full a recovery as possible.
I have very close links with numerous Surgeons and Physiotherapy clinics through out Scotland and I will happily recommend another physiotherapist if it is more suitable for you from a clinical or location perspective.
Career and Experience
I qualified as a Physiotherapist in Glasgow in 1985 and completed a post graduate MSc in Applied Biomechanics at Strathclyde University, Glasgow in 2005. I am presently a visiting physiotherapy lecturer at GCU in Glasgow and I also work very closely with many of the orthopaedic specialists in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Furthermore, I am currently an advisor to the Glasgow Sports Surgery Service (GSSS).
I spent 27 years working in the NHS as a Physiotherapist gaining experience in a variety of clinical areas including Orthopaedics, A & E and Paediatrics, before retiring from the NHS to concentrate on looking after my four lovely children. As well as working in the hospitals, I have worked extensively in sport with the SFA, SRU and the Professional Jockeys Association.
Throughout the years I have written numerous physiotherapy post-op exercise protocols with orthopaedic consultants based in Glasgow. Many patients will follow these protocols after surgery. These protocols include knee replacement, hip impingement and anterior cruciate ligament (acl) reconstruction. I have also written Physio ex programmes following common injuries of the knee, hip, ankle, also for patients with kneecap pain and acute back pain. I have a particular interest in the Physiotherapy management of patients following facial palsy (bells palsy).
