What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy aims to reduce or eliminate pain and maximise the overall health and wellbeing of a person. As a physiotherapist I understand that you want to get better quickly and back to doing the things you love.

The skill of a physiotherapist lies in analysing how you move, sit, walk or run; through this we identify abnormalities which may lead to pain or injury. By conducting a thorough assessment of your problem I aim to treat your symptoms whilst also identifying the underlying cause, getting you on the right track to recovery.

What do I treat?

Sports injuries
Back and neck problems
Post surgery rehabilitation
Joint pains and arthritis
Repetitive strain injuries
Antenatal and postnatal back and pelvic pain
Biomechanical problems

What can you expect at your appointment?

I will initially carry out a thorough assessment which will involve discussing your symptoms as well as an examination of the problem area. It is best to dress in loose comfortable clothing for this.

I will always explain what the problem is and what treatment options are available so that we can agree an appropriate course of physiotherapy that fits around you and your lifestyle.
Treatments offered may be a combination of hands on therapy (including joint and soft tissue mobilisation), electrotherapy, exercise therapy and lifestyle advice.

Anne Saunders BSC(Hons) Physiotherapy
HCPC registered
Member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy

I qualified as a chartered physiotherapist from Sheffield Hallam University in 2001. Since then I have worked in both the NHS and private practice specialising in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries. Over the years I have developed a wealth of hands on experience in treating all manner of pain conditions. I have a particular interest in the treatment of antenatal and postnatal back and pelvic girdle pain.


I am also an accredited matwork pilates instructor. I find pilates to be an excellent and very enjoyable form of exercise, both for rehabilitation and fitness. The nature of pilates exercises makes it accessible and appropriate for almost all ages and fitness levels. I am available for 1:1 pilates sessions as well as classes and use pilates exercises where appropriate as part of a treatment programme.  csp logo
