Cathy studied physiotherapy at Coventry University, graduating with a First Class Honours degree. She also has a background in sports massage therapy and sports injury treatment. She is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP), is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and also holds membership with Physio First and the Federation on Holistic Therapists (FHT).
Cathy now works as a private musculoskeletal physiotherapist, being the owner/practitioner of Platform Physio treating all age groups and abilities, not just sports personnel.
With an interest in sports, Cathy has worked closely with many runners and triatheletes in particular, but has also delved into the world of dance, motor racing and scuba diving. Her primary focus however, is to maximise her patient’s function whatever their lifestyle. She takes an holistic approach which looks not only at the immediate problem, but also how to prevent or minimise it’s impact in the future.
As a particular fan of ‘hand-on’ physiotherapy techniques, Cathy believes that soft tissue work plays an important role in facilitating the healing process - after all, we are so much more than just bones!
