Special Interests: Women's Health (Obstetrics and Gynaecology), Acupuncture, Musculoskeletal
After becoming qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2003 Judy had the opportunity to develop a wealth of clinical knowledge and skills at The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, North London. During that time she specialised in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy, treating injuries and conditions which affect the muscles, joints and soft tissues. At senior level this included rotations in Women’s Health and Orthopaedics. She completed her Modified Pilates Matwork Instructor qualification during this time and set up an evening class in her local church hall. Judy now teach Pilates at a Rehabilitation studio in Welwyn Garden City. She also completed her Foundation Acupuncture Course and has found this a useful adjunct to her repertoire of treatments.
In the area of women's health physiotherapy Judy managed a busy outpatient and inpatient obstetric and gynaecology caseload and saw the hugely beneficial effects of timely physiotherapy in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain and pelvic floor issues in the antenatal and postnatal population and for women at all stages of life
Judy attends several courses a year to ensure that she keeps up with her Continuing Professional Development: ‘Pilates for Osteoporosis’ and ‘The Shoulder Theory and Practice’ by Dr Jeremy Lewis, an expert in this field. Most recently 'Physiotherapy assessment and management of pregnancy related musculoskeletal conditions'.
She has access to journals through her membership to the CSP (Charterted Society Physiotherapist), POGP (Pelvic and Obstetric Gynaecological Physiotherapy), AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists) and APPI (The Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute).
