Born and bred in Norfolk, Katy first embarked on her physiotherapy career in Liverpool where she commenced her BSc Honours in physiotherapy, graduating with first class honours. Firstly working within the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital; rehabilitating patients after complex heart and chest surgery and within critical care. She then went on to continue work for the NHS in the Aintree university teaching hospital and major trauma centre.
Upon embarking on a senior role within musculoskeletal physiotherapy, Katy begun to specialise within orthopaedic rehabilitation, movement analysis, sports injury and injury prevention. This involved treating every day recreational gym goers and sports enthusiasts through to competitive athletes, as well as a broad spectrum of common musculoskeletal disorders. Being a keen gym attender herself with a personal and professional interest in body composition and development, Katy also dedicated some of her time to working in a high performance personal training gym as one of the lead assessing physiotherapists.
Embarking on her MSc as an advanced practitioner physiotherapist, Katy has completed masters modules in diagnoses and triage of the upper limb, clinical research, and differential diagnosis and management of temporomandibular disorders- giving her a specialist knowledge in this field (working closely with dentists and maxillofacial consultants within elective clinics and trauma).Returning to her roots in North Norfolk, Katy has accepted a role moving beyond this level of senior physiotherapist, now helping to lead and teach a team of physiotherapists within the NHS.
Katy offers a wide variety of treatment including electrotherapy, acupuncture and dry needling, movement and gait analysis, manual therapy and manipulation, and tailor made rehabilitation programmes.
