About Estelle

Royal Air Force
I trained with the Royal Air Force (as a WRAF) and qualified in January 1978!
It was a brilliant way to train - unbeatable experience and a fantastic opportunity.

As well as the in-depth physio training that was provided, I had to do all the usual that the forces insist on i.e. square bashing, shoe "spit and polish", cleaning etc., etc.! This training (physio!) was invaluable and great fun with no expense being spared in getting fit boys fit again! As well as ALL aspects of physiotherapy, training also included time spent at Stoke Mandeville hospital and the RAF rehabilitation units and laterally I was the burns and plastic surgery specialist physiotherapist.


After moving to Jersey Channel Islands, I decided to set up my own physiotherapy practice and had eight wonderful years there. I am glad to say that during that time I met many, many lovely patients and was very pleased and proud to have had the support of many of the doctors and consultants, some becoming good friends. I enjoyed my work and will leave taking many memories and much valuable experience with me.


Work between the RAF and Jersey
On leaving the RAF, I did a wonderful spell with the UK National Health Service, a totally different organisation from the RAF (!) but very valuable none the less.

Estelle Mitchell Chartered PhysioSadly here on the "Costa" there are many so called physiotherpists, many of whom do not have a recognised qualification to their name. PLEASE ensure that any therapist that you may see for whatever treatment you need has a Colegio number. If they have not, ASK WHY!

My number with the Ilustre Colegio Profesional de Fisioterapeutas de Andalucia is 2070.


Whilst I am mainly a "hands-on" practitioner, I have and use some of the most up to date equipment available including ultrasound, interferential, low level laser, bio-feedback and the latest muscle teaching "tool", a stabiliser. I am also delighted to advise that I have been chosen to be the first in Mainland Europe to have the revolutionary and ground breaking FOOTMAXX Footmaxx Orthoticsorthotic system. More details can be found by visiting or clicking on their logo.



I am absolutely delighted to be working and treating patients here in Marbella and the support and response received has been very encouraging and positive.



The Future
I hope that I can continue to be able to see and treat my friends and patients both old and new. However and more importantly, I hope that all patients I treat go on to live healthy, mobile and more comfortable lives.

With more moving parts than any machine, it's not surprising your body occasionally cries out in pain or refuses to do what you tell it to. Physiotherapy is an effective way to treat many of the problems you can experience!
