Dr Charlie Winward, Specialist Physiotherapist

Charlie qualified from the Middlesex School of Physiotherapy, London and is one of a small number of physiotherapists delivering Graded Exercise Therapy for CFS/ME. Charlie has worked in Oxfordshire for over 20 years, particularly with adults with long-term conditions. Charlie was the first clinical specialist physiotherapist at the Oxford Centre for Enablement, and she has a wealth of experience working with patients with neurological conditions. She has published a number of papers in peer-reviewed journals on exercise, altered sensation and fatigue.

Charlie delivers one-to-one treatment sessions for each of her patients, which can either be face-to-face, via telephone or internet web technology. She understands the fluctuating nature of CFS/ME symptoms and aims to help her patients find the best route to communication and treatment that will support and help them.

She is dedicated to helping patients with CFS/ME and is actively involved in research in this condition. In addition, she is particularly keen on helping patients to understand activity versus exercise, and how newer wrist worn activity monitors can help patients with their daily lives.
