Sally has a wide variety of skills and experience from working with both adults and children in the local hospital and community for the past 10 years. She has extensive knowledge across a wide variety of areas including musculoskeletal problems, neurology, paediatrics, respiratory and orthopaedics. Sally also has a lot of experience working with people who have complex, multi-factoral problems, helping prevent hospital admissions and working to reduce the risk of falls. Additional recent additional training includes Bobath Therapy which is widely used in the treatment of neurological problems, postural assessment/body symmetry and Moving and Handling trainer training.
Sally is a local girl having grown up in Bramhall. Outside of work she is kept busy looking after her young children and keeps fit by running, cycling and going to Pilates and Insanity classes.
In 2005, I graduated from The University of Manchester with a BSc in Physiotherapy. I started my career in Hope Hospital in Salford gaining experience in a wide range of areas such as orthopaedics, neurology rehabilitation, respiratory, and musculoskeletal out-patients. I also worked for a rugby club in my spare time and enjoyed the challenge of rehabilitating the players back to match fitness and managing acute injuries on the pitch during match days.
My main passion lay in musculo-skeletal (MSK) out-patients and I got a promotion and moved to work for Stockport NHS Foundation Trust. I wanted to further my knowledge and skills and have done courses such as acupuncture, shoulder rehabilitation course and the APPI pilates course. I am due to undertake my injection therapy course in 2019.
My greatest achievement was gaining a Masters in Manual Therapy. This has widened my knowledge of various conditions and treatment approaches and enabled me to become a member of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym and spending time with my family and two very energetic children.
