Since graduating, CATHY has worked in a variety of clinical settings, both within the NHS and private sector, specialising in musculoskeletal injuries, particularly lower limb disorders. Whilst working at Leeds General Infirmary, Cathy ran the physiotherapy rehabilitation gym service, working alongside two specialist knee surgeons, and was fundamental in establishing the current A&E Acute Knee Service.
Cathy specialises in the knee area, and often works with childrens back pain and sports injuries.cathy also helps adolescents with disc problems. The leeds back and foot centre has worked with cathy for a number of years,having her working at the clinic is extremely advantagious for the running of our physiotherapy department,Cathy has the added interest in trauma cases and also has the BOND SALON acceptance for medical legal work.
Post-graduate courses have included ACUPUNCTURE, manual therapy, muscle imbalance/kinetic control, McKenzie techniques and biomechanical analysis of the lower quadrant, ensuring up-to-date, evidence-based practice.
Her particular interest in lower limb injuries and biomechanical problems, has stemmed from her love of running and Thai boxing (sustaining most of the injuries herself along the way!), together with her previous work with lower limb rehabilitation in the NHS.
She now specialises in this area, working closely with a specialist biomechanical podiatrist.
Cathy divides her time professionally between business development and practice management, and a clinical case load. Outside of work, aside from sport, Cathy is at her happiest in her wellies messing in her garden and 'attempting' to grow vegetables (moderately-edible we are told). She loves escaping to the Lakes where she is working her way through the many peaks (despite her fear of heights!).
