Rachael Barren

Specialist Chartered Physiotherapist

 

For the past 6 years I have had the chance to work as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist within an NHS setting and a private clinic based setting which has greatly developed my clinical and assessment skills in a range of musculoskeletal issues. This includes sports related injuries, fractures, osteoarthritis, persistent lower back pain and developmental issues.

I have a good experience of working with all ages. I especially enjoy working with younger clients as this can involve thinking out of the box with more creative exercise programs. Some of my private work has included work with developmental issues including one patient with cerebral palsy.  I was  involved in regular weekly physiotherapy exercise progressions, soft tissue massage and myofascial soft tissue massage. We did gym sessions at a local sports centre and sensory sessions in her home.
