Biography

Sophie initially worked in professional sport for two years before moving into the private sector, specialising in the management of musculoskeletal pain.

Over these four years she developed experience in particular in occupational physiotherapy, assessing and treating patients then assisting them to remain in or return to work. It was here that she developed a deeper interest in the long-term management of persistent pain. This began when running smaller pain management programmes, specifically designed to assist people with chronic pain in returning to work. During this time she also delivered training to large companies and their employees on how to stay healthy and reduce the risks of injury in the workplace, through lifestyle changes, exercise advice, health and safety. It was during her time at this company when she was nominated nationally and in the top four for the 'Young Achiever of the Year' Award at the Rehabilitation First Awards 2014.

In her current role she is lead physiotherapist for the Compassion in Pain Group and has an interest in treating people with hypermobility syndrome and low back pain.

Sophie has also completed postgraduate courses in psychological approaches to managing pain, musculoskeletal examination and Foundation Level Aquatic Therapy, and she delivers hydrotherapy classes in our service. She is currently studying towards an MSc in Advanced Practice.

Sophie is a member of the British Pain Society and Physiotherapy Pain Association.
