Career Experience

Having qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1988 her first full-time jobs were based in London at the West Middlesex Hospital, Westminster Hospital, Westminster and Chelsea and the Clementine Churchill Hospital. Within this hospital environment Diane worked with various patients covering musculoskeletal (in and outpatients), orthopaedics, paediatrics, respiratory and intensive care, neurology (in and out patients), burns units, HIV/Aids wards, community/out patients, general surgery and maternity.

She also supplemented this work in the evenings running a sports injury clinic at a local sports centre as well as providing physiotherapy cover for the semi-professional football team.

Her career then took her back up to the North West of England as lead Chartered physiotherapist for the Blackburn Rovers Sports Injury Clinic which was based in Lancaster and Blackburn, before opening up the Physio-4u practice in 3 centres at Carnforth, Preston and Blackpool. This has now been consolidated into 1 unit at the Broughton Physiotherapy Clinic. Alongside her clinic duties, she has also helped provide physiotherapy cover for various Professional Football Association (PFA)seniors tournaments based in Barbados and Tobago.

In relation to her continuous professional development, she went onto supplement her clinical work with further education and completed her Master’s Degree in Exercise and Rehabilitation at the University of Central Lancashire in 2008. She regularly attends various courses throughout the year, with a specialisation in vestibular rehabilitation and acupuncture, skills which she puts to full use in the clinic environment.

She has always had a special interest in mountaineering activities, such as rock/ice climbing to now walking and skiing and is an active gym member. Diane has found her enjoyment for an active lifestyle helps to give her an even greater understanding of the mechanics in the initial injury process and the rehabilitation pathway to full recovery.
