Jenny Moore – Sports and Spinal Physiotherapist
I am excited to be joining the Balance team as a spinal and sports physiotherapist and am here to treat any issue you may come in with. I will always take time to understand all the factors relevant to your recovery, to help you feel better, move better, and know how to help yourself.
I was a keen dancer and gymnast, but began to take an interest in injury and recovery after sustaining a stubborn hamstring injury in my teens. I started to practice yoga and pilates aged 18, completed a three year course in shiatsu massage, and later undertook a BSc course in acupuncture. I have extensive experience in working with all of these treatment approaches.
I realised that to ensure a really solid understanding of pain and rehabilitation physiotherapy was the obvious career choice, and graduated from the physiotherapy MSc course at King’s College London in 2010.
I have since worked in NHS trusts up to team lead level as well as the private sector, treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions of all types however “simple” or complex, pre, and post- operative orthopaedic care, and sports and running injuries. I completed APPI pilates training and have taught matwork pilates in various settings. I also love to work with antenatal MSK conditions and will be happy to help you through the childbearing year and beyond. I have spent some time in the corporate sector and have a good understanding of workplace ergonomics.
In addition, I have experience with chronic pain management programmes. These are really valuable in helping everyone to understand how pain is processed in the nervous system, I always like to emphasise how this can help us to actually recover from chronic pain or injury. This is really important in spinal conditions where the road to getting better is not always predictable.
I bring this mix of experience to my physiotherapy practice, and will work with you to identify the treatment approaches you will find most beneficial and get you fully to where you want to be.
In my spare time you may find me in the gym, garden, on the dancefloor, or endlessly and over-optimistically trying to get my teenage children to tidy up after themselves.
