Susie graduated with a first class degree from Coventry University in 2005 and gained extensive experience working in all areas of physiotherapy. She found her niche in targeting areas of movement restriction and consequent resolution of pain with a winning and evidenced based combination of soft tissue release work and individualised exercise plans. Having an extensive background of knowledge in rehabilitation of injuries by achieving a Bsc (Hons) degree in Sports Rehabilitation from St Mary’s University College, Twickenham she has had the opportunity to rehabilitate local multi sport team players. Susie considers one of the most effective skills taught on this course was how specific and directed soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques and deep tissue massage can ease both joint and muscle pain facilitating a quicker recovery to full fitness. Susie has a specialist interest in pelvic health “the movement centre of the body” and is an affiliated member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Women’s Health (ACPHW) and a member of the Pelvic, Obstetric, Gynaecology & Physiotherapy group (POGP). Susie has been working in the Centre for Excellence in Women’s Health for over ten years and continues to work as part of a multi-disciplinary and consultant led team. Over the years she has gained a deeper understanding of the complexities of treating pelvic pain, gynaecological and continence conditions that can prevent freedom of movement, restrict lifestyle and return to exercise. Susie considers evidence based treatment as key to a successful outcome and understands that giving a person the skills to help themselves and guidance to use them effectively is essential in beating chronic and persistent problems.
Apart from being passionate about physiotherapy in her spare time Susie is an enthusiastic club player for the Devon & Exeter Squash and Racketball ladies teams and plays competitive league games against other Devon clubs. To keep fit for the sport you can often find her on Exmouth beach chasing and playing ball with her two little girls, Sophie and Mollie!
