Grad Dip Phys

Musculo-skeletal & sports physiotherapist

Since qualifying from The Middlesex School of Physiotherapy in 1992, Karen has had a successful career working in busy NHS hospitals, GP clinics and private practice.

She started working within sports physiotherapy in 1992. Karen and Jo were joint-lead physiotherapists at Westcombe Park RFC for 15 seasons. Over this time they developed a valued multidisciplinary medical team for the club, during which time Westcombe achieved National League 1 status. Karen and Jo embarked on their next joint venture establishing PhysioForward in 2000, which has grown and grown on the back of their clinical reputation. It has been located at The Parklangley Club since 2003.

Karen and Jo have also worked as physiotherapists at County levels in both rugby and tennis. From this wealth of experience and exposure to the rigours of training and competing, they recognised the need for injury prevention screening programmes, which have been developed within the clinic services. These can be applied to individual training schedules.

Karen has completed post-graduate qualifications in Acupuncture and has a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy. She has a particular interest in sports injuries and shoulder surgery. She is a member of EUSSER (European Society for Shoulder and Elbow Rehabilitation) along with various other special interest groups including Association of Chartered Physiotherapist in Sports and exercise medicine (ACPESM) and Acupuncture Association of Charted physiotherapists (AACP).

When not in the clinic, Karen may be seen in the park playing with her son and walking her dog, or on a yoga mat.
