I am vocationally registered as a Musculoskeletal Medicine Specialist. I previously worked for many years in General Practice whilst raising three children. I completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2006 and Specialist Training in 2017. The field of musculoskeletal and pain medicine is fascinating and important. My interest is mainly in diagnosis, manual therapy and working with people to provide knowledge and self-management, believing we should avoid complex, costly and more risky treatments unless necessary. My interest in research and evidence allows me to inform you about the choices you have if referral is needed.
