Amy first started her career across the severn bridge in Cardiff, where she qualified in 2012 with her BSc (hons) in Physiotherapy. After working in a few different areas she found her passion lay in treating musculoskeletal conditions and specialised in this within the NHS. This also allowed scope to develop a special interest in women’s health working in the University Hospital of Wales, encompassing treating people during and after pregnancy, and with pelvic floor dysfunction.
Amy moved to Bristol at the beginning of 2019 following a further qualification in Veterinary Physiotherapy (PG Dip) in June 2018 which allowed her to chase her dream of treating not just people, but their animals too! (Sorry we don’t offer this at our clinic though!!)
Amy has worked in the Cardiff UHW women’s health team treating patients with antenatal discomfort, providing invaluable advice on how to be kind to your pelvic floor and aids and modifications to help you on your way to due date. Amy is also experienced in the after care to enable to you carefully rehabilitate your body and get back to previous levels of fitness and function! Pilates based exercise and gentle manual therapy can be an important part of this process and we encourage you to make time to look after yourself so that you can look after baby.”
Other experience includes working on both trauma and orthopaedic wards and leading class based pilates for postnatal women. Amy also works in a domiciliary setting in South Bristol, treating people in their homes.
Outside of work Amy spends her time exploring the city, keeping fit and playing tag rugby.
