With her background in sports physiotherapy and her personal interest in running and cycling, Jenny specialises in the treatment of sports injuries. She combines hands on physiotherapy techniques with Pilates based core stability work and education to enable the patient to take control of their condition. Jenny offers biomechanical assessments of walking, running and cycling to provide detailed video analysis of movement and identify any faults that might contribute to injury. This approach also works well for those with more chronic conditions including neck, back and pelvic pain as well as work related injuries, where analysis of work posture and movement can improve outcomes.
