Michelle has always been involved in competitive sports including athletics, netball and gymnastics representing at national level in her younger years. This initially led her to undertake a degree in Sports Science at Brunel University in 2009 which sparked her fascination in biomechanics and rehabilitation for optimal performance and she went straight on to study Physiotherapy at Kings College London.
Michelle has worked as a physiotherapist both nationally and internationally in Singapore, Ghana and England, in a variety of settings including in-patient orthopaedics, musculoskeletal and sports settings with the opportunity to work with international athletes. She has many years’ experience treating people from all different backgrounds and believes in treating with a goal orientated holistic approach. She has a passion for musculoskeletal physiotherapy with a special interest in posture correction and orthopaedic injuries.
Michelle strongly believes where possible prevention is better than cure; incorporating personal training, clinical Pilates, functional strength training and manual therapy including massage and acupuncture where indicated. She believes that this skill set allows for enhanced recovery and improved treatment outcomes. She anticipates that in the future she will train in diagnostic ultrasound and injection therapy to further her scope of practice.
When not treating patient’s Michelle loves to travel and her favourite food is Thai. Interestingly Michelle once worked for a turner prize winning artist where she was a piece of live art and had to sprint through Tate Britain Duveen galleries. Her top three all-time movies include ‘The pursuit of happiness’, ‘Remember the Titans’, and ‘The Lion King’ and her favourite colour is turquoise!
