Helen has been a physiotherapist for a long time! She qualified from Leeds Metropolitan University with a BSc (hons) degree in Physiotherapy in 1996. She started her physiotherapy career working in the NHS at the Freeman Hospital specialising in musculo-skeletal physiotherapy in 1999. Helen moved into the private sector full time in 2003, and founded Physio+ in 2007.
She has continued to develop her specialist physiotherapy skills through post graduate training most recently completing JEMS Movement ART level 2 which has taken her skills in movement analysis to the next level.
Helen has particular success in treating patients that may have had treatment elsewhere but symptoms still persist. She's seen a lot of patients in almost 30 years as a physio and with that extensive experience may approach your problem slightly differently.
Her particular areas of interest relate to rehabilitation of shoulder and knee injuries. She wants to help you be able to move with greater ease, confidence and control by treating the source of the problem, not the symptom.
Helen has also been heavily involved in treatment and management of sports injuries. She has worked with patients from grassroots level to high performance. She has helped many athletes return to the sport they love, be it running or triathlon to equestrian or martial arts.
In addition to her clinics at Physio Plus, Julie works in the hands burns and plastics team at the Royal Victoria Hospital and has a specialist interest in hand therapy. She is a member of the British Association of Hand therapists. She has continued to develop her specialist physiotherapy skills through a wealth of post graduate training and brings these valuable skills and experience into her private work at Physio Plus.
Julie treats patients with musculoskeletal injuries in any area of the body, but if it’s your hand you’ve injured – she’s the physio for you!
