About Me

Career history of Karen McLaughlin

I qualified as a chartered physiotherapist from Manchester University in 1996 with a BSc (hons) degree in physiotherapy.

For the first 8 years of my career I gained extensive experience working in local NHS hospitals. I worked in many areas of physiotherapy but developed a specialist interest in treating musculoskeletal, rheumatological and orthopaedic conditions.

I became a senior physiotherapist in an outpatient department where I worked alongside orthopaedic consultants and gained my diploma in injection therapy.

I was the physiotherapist to Cheshire and the North of England hockey squads and also participated in physiotherapy screening programmes at the North West academy for the England U21 male and female hockey players.

This led to an invitation by the Great Britain Olympic Hockey Board to provide physiotherapy for the Great Britain under 21 hockey team which was an amazing experience working alongside such elite young athletes.

In 2005 I became an associate physiotherapist in a local private physiotherapy and sports injury clinic. I was a member of a very dynamic team where we treated all musculoskeletal conditions and all age groups from 5-95 years old.

In 2015 I set up my own physiotherapy practice which is situated in Wilmslow. I treat all musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions including post surgery/trauma. I can also offer domiciliary visits if appropriate.

In 2022 I completed my Pilates teacher training in all 3 Matwork Levels at The Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute (APPI) in London. APPI is a modified form of the traditional Pilates exercises developed by 2 Australian physiotherapists. These exercises are designed to promote core stability, flexibility, endurance, postural and body awareness and to correct muscle imbalances. Pilates has become a valuable adjunct to my physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation programmes.

I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Physio First.
