Pat O Brien
Chartered Physiotherapist - MCSP Grad.Dip Physiotherapy, PGDIP Ergonomics
My physiotherapy career has had many interesting twists and turns. I started on the rugby pitch as both player and physio for England women’s rugby team, and then specialised for a while in the treatment of amputees within a rehabilitation centre. I then took a long career break to start a family.
On my return to the workplace I became a Falls specialist, concentrating more on the needs of the elderly and frail, before moving to Cornwall where I worked for a while in a hospice setting and specialised in palliative care. I currently work in the field of rehabilitation across many of Cornwall’s nursing and care homes and have a lead role in the teaching of Moving and Handling skills to care staff.
I am a semi-finalist in the 2020 South West Care awards for innovation and enjoy problem solving. I now have 4 grown up daughters and enjoying walking around the Cornish Coast and sea-swimming whenever I can, although my main passion is dancing.
I believe in a holistic and creative approach to health and fitness
and try to thread as much enjoyment through therapy as possible, adding music wherever I can.
We look forward to seeing you
Pat didn’t just help me , she gave me the tools to help myself. Highly Recommended
