meet the physiocare team
Our aim is to give excellent care and service, and to treat each of our patients as individuals so you receive a unique, tailor-made programme for your specific needs. The PhysioCare Team is made up of five experienced Chartered Physiotherapists who have worked in both Private Practice and the NHS for many years and are all HCPC registered. They each have areas of special interest within physiotherapy and continue to develop in their work through study and professional courses. It is our pleasure to introduce them to you…
“I like to take a person-centred approach to my practice to help establish and achieve specific goals tailored to my individual client’s needs, providing engaging rehabilitation programmes with the aim of reducing pain and optimising function.
I also have a strong background in elite sport, having worked with the first teams at Middlesbrough and Portsmouth Football Clubs.
Through this experience I am able to offer Island athletes a specialist physiotherapy service to rehabilitate sporting injuries from amateur through to professional level.
My hobbies include travelling, reading, attending sporting events and spending time with my family.”

“My key role on Reception is to provide great customer service and I enjoy helping people, whether on the phone or in person. My previous experience helps me to make sure that all our patients are looked after in the best possible way, as I am able to identify and match a patient’s problem to the right Physiotherapist.
When I am not working, I really enjoy cycling and walking, which is a good antidote to sitting at my desk all day and keeps me fit.”
- Rachel has a strong administrative background having worked in healthcare and customer services since leaving school in 1987.
Based at our Ryde clinic, Rachel acts as a central point of contact for PhysioCare’s two clinics. She is the warm, friendly voice at the end of the phone providing help and information and ensuring there is a welcoming environment for our visiting patients
My Physiotherapist has a unique way of dealing with her patients. She first and foremost has the skill required to help solve their problems and has an interested, inquisitive and open mind. She also expresses a great deal of care.
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with my recovery from my knee ligament injury. I am now back playing football properly and have today been told I have been selected for the Island Games Ladies Football Squad, so after a long and difficult time out, all the hard work has paid off. My knee is feeling pretty good and I’m continuing with strengthening exercises all the time.
Due to having received an impeccable standard of treatment and professional service I would feel it wise for someone requiring a physiotherapist or help with pain to seriously consider visiting PhysioCare for assistance
I walked into the clinic in pain and bent over and emerged much more relaxed, standing and walking upright and in much less discomfort. Not only did my physiotherapist treat me with a great deal of care and understanding, she also restored my confidence.
