KHPhysiotherapy is owned and run by me….Kerstine.
I qualified as a sports injury and rehabilitation therapist in 2009 after studying for 2 years at The Midlands School of Massage in Nottingham. Prior to this I was a serving Fire Fighter with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. I continued on to train as a physiotherapist at the University of Nottingham after working for the NHS in a busy, local community NeuroRehabilitation team. After working within a local respiratory team and for a private company dealing with mainly whiplash patients I realised I wanted to offer my patients a much more personalized, hands on experience so I set up KHPhysiotherapy.
My goals for every patient are to provide them with a comfortable, welcoming environment and give them the support, education and advice for them to be able to take ownership of their condition and move forwards along their road to recovery. Setting up my business in my community means I can support local people and hopefully continue to develop links between local GPs, groups and businesses. I have a good relationship with Kimberley Leisure Centre and several local PTs and trainers. I have invested in my own development so I can add an extra dimension to my knowledge.
Personally I like to keep fit and active and hopefully inspire others to be more active. I am a regular at Kimberley Leisure Centre and love working out with weights in the gym. I love to run, and run long distances. I am a 2 time finisher of the grueling West Highland Way Race, and have completed various ultra distance events. 2020 was a tough year for everybody and it was hard to stay focused. In May I completed 75km by running laps of my local cricket club to raise money for the stroke association.
This year I did my Maggies 50 in one go to raise money for their amazing charity.
I love a challenge and lets hope 2021 allows us to get some races in.
I have a level 4 Strength and Conditioning Qualification and the clinic is well equipped to be able to observe and coach. A treadmill also allows me to do Gait Analysis which can be really useful when coaching runners to change/improve their from.
Through 2020 myself and my partner took on 3 allotments so we are currently busy getting them set up. I love life and don’t see exercises as a chore. Life is for living, and keeping my mind and body healthy means I’m ready to handle the adventures it throws at us 🙂
Physiotherapy helps people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement, exercises, manual therapy, education and advice. It is both an active and a passive therapy whereby your physiotherapist will collect detailed information from you to build up a subjective history, set out a detailed rehabilitation programme and allow you as the patient to take control of your recovery.Read more
Gait analysis involves recording your whole body movement and style whilst travelling at different speeds on a treadmill (or outside). Digital technology is used to record and analyse this movement and from there a detailed programme is formulated to address any problem areas. It can benefit patients who are suffering from injuries or who wish to improve their running efficiencyRead more
Runners Workshops- a 2 hour session designed to inform runners on how to reduce their risk of picking up running injuries, how to manage injuries and tips on how to improve their running form. The workshops can be tailored for specific groups or running abilities. Breast Health/Sports Bra Clinics- information for ladies on the importance of looking after our breasts. The session covers information on the breast structure, damage that can be sustained from inadequate support and why sports bra’s are a vital piece of kit. As a shock absorber stockist there is then an opportunity to try on the latest Shock Absorber bra’s and have a run on the treadmill.Read more
She not only looked at the running side of things but also my other hobbies to find out what was causing the issues and preventing the healing process. She really did go above and beyond to help me and I wouldn’t have achieved what I have done this year without her help and support!
Having found a new love in running I was devastated to get a hip injury. With Kerstine’s assessment, treatment, positive words and encouragement I am finally back running again
Always hugely helpful, supportive, knowledgeable AND realistic about running injuries and their owners.
