Kirsty Harper

Pain + Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist

Based in Sheffield, S11.

“My approach is evidence based and holistic, using a variety of techniques to explore your pain, and provide you with a bespoke treatment package”.

 

My Passion

I’m highly trained as a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist with over 10 years’ experience working within the NHS and sport sectors. Now I’m offering private physiotherapy Sheffield in heart of Sharrowvale (S11).

I graduated in 2011 with a First Class Honours Degree in Physiotherapy, and have since gained MSc level training in advanced practice and musculoskeletal management. I am also a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council.

Clinically, I have a proven success in rehabilitating injury, pain and dysfunction in order to improve the musculoskeletal health and overall wellbeing of clients.

My approach is evidence based and holistic, using a variety of techniques to explore your pain, and provide you with a bespoke treatment package that considers your individual goals and lifestyle.

I have a special clinical interest in back pain management, running related pain, and workplace/occupation related injury. PLUS,  I work with my patients on the management of long term conditions such as osteoarthritis, encouraging patients to achieve their goals and remain active.

My Approach

I am a holistic practitioner. I understand that behind every pain or injury is a different personal experience and individual goals. My focus always includes the overall health and wellbeing of my client, as well as managing symptoms.

I am very evidence based, but I like ‘thinking outside the box’ and using different approaches to ensure treatment fully bespoke to you. Sometimes rehab can seem like a chore, but I always try to make your rehab as simple as possible, and fit easily into your routines and lifestyle. This will help you to make positive lasting changes to your health and wellbeing.

I have MSc level training in advanced musculoskeletal practice and pain management. I have worked in primary care as a first contact practitioner, ensuring a high level of diagnostic accuracy and experience. I have also worked in professional sport, assessing injury and managing rehab of elite athletes. I have gained advanced training in managing complex hand and wrist conditions, and have specialist experience working within Occupational Health and wellbeing.
