As a keen netball player, Joanna knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist from an early age after requiring the expert knowledge and care of a physio following several sporting injuries that occurred during her time at secondary school.
After graduating with a BSc Hons from the University of Liverpool in 2008 she worked for the NHS for 3 years gaining experience in a wide variety of clinical settings. During this time she also worked at Rochdale Rugby Union Football Club covering match days and training sessions for the mini, junior and senior players.
In 2009 she began working for Bradley Physio, a role which now involves training and mentoring student and junior physiotherapists and working as a Clinical Lead Physiotherapist. Joanna has a special interest in Acupuncture treating a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, migraines and sports injuries. In 2011 she undertook a comprehensive training programme with the Society of Orthopaedic Musculoskeletal Medicine (SOMM) providing her with a detailed knowledge of examination, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Having completed her APPI Pilates training in 2010 Joanna is also part of the team of physios providing assessments, one to one sessions and weekly Pilates classes at Bradley Physio.
Outside of work Jo has recently become a Mum and enjoys a busy social life with her family and friends.
