Musculo-Skeletal Physiotherapist

Lynne qualified in 1988 from St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London. She then worked for a ski season in the French Alps before returning to the NHS in Slough, Hemel Hempstead and Manchester. She developed a specialism in Complex Spinal Problems while working at Trafford where she piloted a direct access Back Assessment Clinic and Back School to cut Consultant waiting lists. 

When she moved to Rochdale in 1994 as Superintendent Physiotherapist she developed close links with Mr Martin Knight, Consultant Spinal Surgeon, at The Spinal Foundation and has worked with him ever since. She began her private practice in 1996, initially in her own home, expanding into a high street clinic in 2001 and moving into Physio & Therapies new purpose designed clinic in November 2006. 

Her specialist interests are in treating the spine, pelvis and headaches and has been involved in research concerning the treatment of cervical headaches run by the University of Manchester. She loves the way Physio & Therapies has developed over the years and feels that working as part of such a holistic team has opened her eyes to her ability to heal. She spends her spare time with her wife Denny in their garden or walking the dogs and she still finds time to cook, swim, dance, sing and visit France!
