PT Assistant, Hemel Hempstead General Hospital, Hertfordshire

(October 2001 to May 2002)

Throughout my professional career I have gained extensive experience in physiotherapy, in particular musculoskeletal physiotherapy. My working experience and post-graduate training has facilitated the integration of the advanced application of various manual therapy approaches and techniques. I have formal post-graduate MSc level training in:

 Acupuncture
 Maitland approach
 McKenzie approach
 Kaltenbourne approach
 Mulligans NAGS, SNAGS and MWMs
 Neurodynamics
 GD V Manipulations
 Muscle stability and Movement Dysfunction Retraining.  Norwegian Therapy Master System

My time at the above mentioned clinics has given me the opportunity to integrate my post-graduate training into practice through a continuous full caseload of musculoskeletal NHS, Private and Medical -Legal patients. The equipment available has been incredible in aiding my development, including a Norwegian red cord system, electrotherapy modalities and cordless EMG equipment, all of which I am fully conversant with. I am currently associated with a special interest group, the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Exercise Therapy (ACPET) and have been responsible for the care of a large number of sports injury clients. I have completed my MSc in neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy and thus gained full registration with the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP). I am a fully qualified Kinetic Control Movement Therapist.

EDUCATION AND TRAINING

MSc Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy with Commendation

University of Hertfordshire
(October 2007 to 2013)

Neuromusculoskeletal clinical placement 1; assessment and management of upper quadrant neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction; neuromusculoskeletal clinical placement 2; and independent research.

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy (2:1)

Keele University
(2002 to 2005)
My undergraduate dissertation was carried out in conjunction with Dr. John Buckley and involved investigating ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) in older adults with or without cardiac problems, with regards to resistance training, an area that is particularly close to my heart. The data gathered was consequently presented to Dr. G Borg at the Annual British Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation Conference in Glasgow in 2005 and is in the process of being published.
