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
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.
Posts held included:
working at the Woodhall Spa rheumatology clinic in the hydrotherapy
pool with lots of plaster of paris splinting experience.
a senior physiotherapist position at Newark General Hospital Outpatient
a private physio clinic in Ipswich specialising
in orthopaedics and rheumatology -
worked at Shrubland Hall Health Farm -
started "Kids Physicals" exercises for 3 - 5 year olds
(a forerunner to "Tumble Tots"!) -
remedial exercises for the elderly working for the Suffolk County
Senior physiotherapist for the Purley Hospital outpatient department
Senior physiotherapist for the community trust, pioneering outpatient
facilities in GP surgeries.
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
system. More details can be found by visiting www.footmaxx.com
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

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!
