Working Background:

After qualifying as a physio Carolyn specialised in the treatment of Sports injuries and at the same time moved into the private sector. She settled in Sevenoaks where she was one of the founder partners of Manor Clinic.

Her specialist clinical interest is in the treatment and rehabilitation of knee injuries and in conjunction with this the study of lower limb biomechanics, gait assessment and running re-education.

She has conducted research into knee ligament reconstructions and knee cap dysfunction, presenting her findings at the International Federation of Orthopædic Manipulative Therapists (IFOMT) Conference in Cape Town in 2004, and in the same year the Chartered Physiotherapy Congress.

She believes in the dynamic treatment of clients that is reflected by her postgraduate studies that include Pilates on equipment, Late Stage Rehabilitation, Run Coaching and Directional Movement Skills (DMS) and Strength and Conditioning. 

Six years ago Carolyn set up the 'Sports Specific Rehabilitation Class' that enables her to work with any clients referred to her to take them through the final stages of their recovery and re-integrate them into sport.
