Paediatric Neuromuscular Physiotherapist

I work at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital as a Specialist Neuromuscular Physiotherapist in the Regional Paediatric Neuromuscular Clinic. I undertake assessments and support the local physiotherapy teams with the treatment of our patients.  I am involved in a number of national and international research studies for the treatment of DMD and SMA. 

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1992 and commenced work at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital as a junior physiotherapist undertaking a variety of rotations.  I have worked in paediatrics since 1996 and started specialising in paediatric neuromuscular conditions in 1998.  During this time the management of neuromuscular conditions has improved significantly, I have enjoyed being part of this development, and I am looking forward to the advances.
