Amy Cakebread

Since graduating from Brunel University in 2007 Amy has gained a wide range of experience in the NHS and private practice, specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy early in her career.  Keen to develop extensive knowledge in this area and to become a clinical specialist, she is starting a Masters degree in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Brighton University in January 2015.   

Her varied experience has resulted in a wealth of knowledge in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal problems in all age groups, with her areas of particular interest being spinal, lower limb and sporting injuries.  Amy believes in a holistic approach to care and utilises manual therapy techniques to get you back on track quickly.  However, she strongly advocates exercise therapy, education and self-management strategies to support the manual therapy for a long-term prevention.

Amy has a keen interest in sports having trained at a high level in gymnastics and gained a black belt in Karate.  This interest has continued professionally as she enjoys the challenge that sporting injuries provide.  In addition to private clinic work, she has previously provided services at Tonbridge School, Tunbridge Wells Hockey Club and Tunbridge Wells Rugby Club.

Outside of work in addition to sport, she enjoys travelling, dance, piano and attending Ballet performances.
