Ms Christine Eatwell
Job Title: Physiotherapist
BSc(hons) MCSP HCPC (Physiotherapy/ Shiatsu) My career initially began as a professional dancer, which gradually expanded to incorporate teaching and facilitating creative approaches to movement with all ages and many styles of dance. I also worked in dance administration, promotion, managing a community dance programme, funding, choreography and advising on dance within the national curriculum. Eventually I found myself specialising in dance with and for people with disabilities, and older people. This latter work led to a career development resulting in a BSc in Physiotherapy, in order that I could understand more of the science behind movement to enhance the creative perspective, and work more effectively with movement disorders and injuries. I have worked as a general rotational physiotherapist covering medical, orthopaedic, surgical, A&E, musculoskeletal and neurological problems. It was the neurological caseload which I found most rewarding, and as a result I now work as a specialist neuro physiotherapist within a Stroke rehabilitation unit.
