Helen has worked extensively in the NHS and private practice and was one of the first physios in the UK to complete a Masters degree. Experience in premiership Cricket, Rugby and Football informed her specialist subject - the management of knee pathologies.

She relocated to Cambridge having sold her practice, Excellence Physiotherapy, in Oakham formally known as The Greetham Physiotherapy Clinic.

Following a year with the victorious Cambridge University Women’s Rowing Squad, her practice in Cambridge is well equipped for specialist rehabilitation including Shock Wave Therapy and Complex muscle Stimulation and hydrotherapy.
