We just wanted to bring you all up to speed with where we are in terms of physiotherapy at the clinic. Jodie is still enjoying her well-earned Maternity leave and is looking at a graduated return to work around October, starting with a couple of half days initially, but don’t panic if you have an issue now! We are delighted to introduce our two new Physiotherapists, Kirk Proto and Elise Rawson. Both are excellent Physiotherapists in their own right with differing areas of expertise as you will see below.
Kirk qualified as a Physiotherapist at the University of Brighton following a career change having previously worked in the finance industry for a number of years. His decision to pursue a career in Physiotherapy was borne out of a passion to help others restore function and improve their quality of life. He has a strong interest in sports injury and rehabilitation being a keen sportsman himself. Kirk also enjoys working with people pre and post surgically, so if you are going to be having or have had any orthopaedic surgery recently get in touch as he will be able to help ensure you get the best result possible.
Elise qualified from the University of Brighton in 2011 with an MSc in Rehabilitation Science. Previous to this degree she completed a bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Chichester. Since qualifying Elise has worked in both the NHS and private settings and has specialised in neurological rehabilitation in both adults and children as well as vestibular pathologies. Neurologically this includes things like stroke rehabilitation, working with MS patients to maintain as much strength and function as possible, Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone Disease and so the list goes on. Vestibular pathologies include BPPV, Labyrinthitis, Meniere’s Disease, and Vestibular Migraines and many more. Alongside this, she also treats all the usual issues you would expect to see a Physio for, with her in-depth experience using posture and movement analysis, sports massage, therapeutic handling and functional strength training. Elise is also qualified separately in sports massage which she is also offering at the clinic and is currently completing her yoga teaching qualification, so watch this space!
So if you have been struggling with niggles since the lockdown has been lifted then please get in touch and we can get you booked in!
We look forward to seeing you soon,
The Health Hub Team
