New Specialist Physiotherapists Join Ruddington Clinic

Rushcliffe Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic is pleased to announce that its team is growing once again with the addition of a new Pelvic Health Physiotherapist and a Paediatric Physiotherapist.

Beginning in October, Carrie Martin {pictured top left} is joining the Ruddington based clinic to provide specialist Pelvic Health Physiotherapy services. She qualified as a Physiotherapist from The University of Nottingham in 2012. She also has a degree in sport and exercise science.

Since qualifying Carrie has worked within the NHS treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including sports injuries, trauma and orthopaedics, back pain, acute injuries, and long term muscular problems. Her specialist area of interest is Pelvic Health, where Carrie has built 4 years of experience treating women with antenatal/postnatal aches and pains, incontinence, prolapse, painful sex, tummy muscle separation, staying active whilst pregnant and returning to fitness post baby. During her time in this field she has attended various seminars and courses, to extend her knowledge and further drive her passion. She has also been a guest lecturer at The University of Nottingham, teaching on the pelvic health module to the undergraduate physiotherapists.

Carrie has an 11 month old daughter and likes competing in long distance running events. She understands that post natal recovery is a tricky path to navigate, and she is keen to help all women through this journey; whether that’s returning to day to day life without incontinence, or having the strength to run a marathon.

The clinic also has another recent arrival, Amanda Mckenzie {pictured top right}, who is a specialist in providing paediatric physiotherapy services.

Amanda qualified from The Middlesex Hospital, London in 1988 and has worked for 30 years in the NHS (all clinical areas) and in the private sector (sports injuries). Having worked in adult rehabilitation in the community, shehas specialised in babies, children and young people with neurodevelopmental conditions for 15 years in Cambridgeshire, London and here in Nottingham.

Amanda says: “I offer a thorough assessment and will work with you to develop a plan towards achieving your goals. The use of hands-on positioning, therapeutic handling to minimise any unwanted movement and support to carry out exercise programmes. I have a particular interest in orthotics and the orthotic/footwear combination to fine tune and optimise gait. I have worked and run joint clinics with orthotists and senior clinicians analysing gait.”

She reveals: “Outside work, my main passion is gardening, whether indoor plants or outdoor, my own garden or at a community garden.”
