Physiotherapy, Sports Rehabilitation, and Acupuncture
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession with a foundation in science. The range of work is varied and involves working with people to promote their own health and well-being. Physiotherapists help to restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability and also aim to relieve pain.
Treatment commonly involves soft tissue massage and release, joint mobilisation, rehabilitation/ exercise/ pilates programmes, postural correction, kinesiotaping techniques, functional movement analysis, laser therapy and dry needling.
In addition we provide personalised exercise programmes, ergonomic advice and further injury prevention strategies.
Sports Rehabilitation involves postural analysis combined with extensive knowledge of sport-specific biomechanics. Treatment includes soft tissue and spinal techniques, laser, taping and individualised exercise programmes.
Acupuncture is becoming an accepted treatment in hospitals and pain clinics for a wide range of health problems and the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE) recommends considering acupuncture as a treatment option for persistant lower back pain, chronic tension-type headaches and migraines. Other common uses include the treatment of arthritic joint pain and postoperative pain.
MSC. MCSP SRP.
After qualifying at the Royal London Hospital Liz had the opportunity to move to Australia to work as a physiotherapist for 3 years in both the outback and coastal hospitals.
On returning to London she worked in private practice in London specialising in musicians and sports and the problems associated with intensive practice and performance.
In 2000 she gained an MSc in Human Ergonomics from the University of Surrey and with this qualification she worked as an Occupational Physiotherapist in the field of Health and Safety in both London and Melbourne.
In 2010 she started 1066physio and now treats a wide range of conditions and injuries with manual therapies and acupuncture. She also enjoys teaching pilates on a one to one basis or classes as she feels that the exercises are the best way to maintain muscle strength and soft tissue flexibility whilst minimising strain to joints.
