Fysioterapeut i FYSIQ NørreportSend Email
I was born and raised in the UK and have been working as a physiotherapist there since 2005 with the last 8 years based in London. I started my career working at an NHS hospital gaining experience in a variety of areas and specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy 10 years ago. From my work in the private sector in London I have had a lot of experience in treating and managing postural pain, sports injuries and pregnancy related conditions. In this time, I completed a series of courses which taught me different treatment and assessment techniques as well as how to manage more complex conditions and look at the body more holistically. I have furthered my education by studying visceral manipulation a fascial release technique for treating restrictions of the deep connecting tissues around the body’s organs and skeleton. I have always had an interest in sports and exercise which developed from my own love of it from a young age. I have furthered my knowledge on this through experience treating patients, many short courses or training sessions with peers as well as podcasts and reading. I have played netball most of my life, was a keen cyclist in London as well as doing strength training which led me to take part in a fitness competition 2 years ago. Working in Canary Wharf in London a very busy and demanding business area I have successfully rehabilitated many sports people from occasional runners to amateur power lifters and triathletes. I have always had an interest in pre and post partum care and with my skill for treating the deep pelvic tissues I felt I had a unique skill set and wanted to develop this further. I have gone on to do a course on musculoskeletal pain in pregnancy and an introduction to pelvic pain covering pelvic floor treatment and managing incontinence/pelvic organ prolapse. In addition, I have studied the science behind pain which has further helped my understanding for managing chronic pain including how other life style factors can play a role i.e. sleep, stress, nutrition, exercise as well as patient cultural and experiential beliefs.

I came to Sara with a post-pregnancy condition. I had numb arms and pins and needles in my fingers due to carrying and feeding my baby which was causing me stiffness and pain. Since my baby wasn’t going to get any lighter, it was imperative that I understood the root cause; learn how to manage my condition and know how to heal myself moving forward. Having never used a physio before I wasn’t sure what to expect. Deep tissue massages were usually my go to answer. What I found was a very attuned and sensitive individual who was able to manipulate my body in ways that are like magic. Educating me and helping me understand the root of where my symptoms lie, helped me to appreciate how interconnected my body is and where I was out of balance. It took less than 30 mins to relieve my pain following the initial consultation. Subsequent sessions were used to help me learn and understand how to self manage – tips on how to be more conscious of my posture, how to hold my body with weight applied, the use of focused stretches and exercises was immensely helpful. Sara’s expertise is very holistic and thoughtful and she gave me great confidence moving forward.
