Her specialist interest is in the treatment and rehabilitation of shoulders but she particularly enjoys treating paediatrics, trauma and orthopaedics, post-operative conditions and sports injuries.

She uses a broad range of therapeutic techniques including joint mobilisations, massage, exercise prescription, electrotherapy and acupuncture.
