about me

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 🙂

2020 has been a tough year for everyone. In March the clinic closed for 10 weeks and this effected my mental health. I was lucky that I was able to get support for my business and in June 2020 I was able to open the clinic for face to face consultations. 2021 has started to look brighter. Business is ticking along nicely and there are events to finally look forward to. I continue to push myself both in my personal and business life and am excited about the rest of 2021
