Sue Kortum

 

Following qualification at the Middlesex Hospital, London in 1976, Sue spent the subsequent 12 years working in both Great Ormond Street and Guys Hospital. During this time she developed a wealth of clinical experience with a variety of patients and elected to further her knowledge and interest in physiotherapy by pursuing the specialties of Paediatrics; Sports Injuries; Cardio–thoracic/Intensive Care and treatment of Amputees and Neurological cases in further depth.

In order to work nearer her home, Sue began working in private practice in the Sevenoaks area. Over the following 20 years, she has become well known in the community and has continued to broaden her clinical knowledge and experience, establishing herself as an amiable physiotherapist with a wealth of clinical talents.

Sue currently continues to practise on a full-time basis, treating all types of out-patient problems, and in addition provides a domiciliary service for patients requiring rehabilitation or palliative care in their home environment. Her continuing interest and commitment to physiotherapy is reflected in the wide range of clinical specialities which Sue chooses to pursue. Her current areas of interest include the following:

  • Treatment and Management of acute & chronic back pain
  • Rehabilitation post surgery – including Anterior Cruciate Reconstruction.
  • Treatment of female continence problems, namely women’s health
  • Work/posturally related pain – spinal or otherwise
  • Palliative care / Elderly Care

Since the departure of her son for university in 2006, Sue has further increased her attendance and participation in nationwide courses and prides herself in remaining up to date with advances in physiotherapy. Her commitment, interest and expertise are best reflected by her completion of the requirements for membership of the Manipulation Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in 2002. The MACP is a select group of around 1000 physiotherapists who, in addition to their undergraduate training, have all undertaken extensive postgraduate study and reached a recognised standard of excellence in neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy.
