I qualified as a Physiotherapist from the University of Malaga ( South of Spain) in 2004 and I spent some time during my clinical training in Finland (North Karelia Polytechnic). Since then, I worked in different private clinics in Spain, as well as with a football team, tennis national tournament, running competitions and in a thalassotherapy centre.
I believe a holistic approach is the best way to provide effective treatment and for that reason in 2007 I studied a postgraduate degree in Aquatherapy, Therapeutic Exercise Prescription and Hydrotherapy Services at the National School of Aquatherapy, in Spain. The following three years I studied a Masters in Osteopathy at the Madrid School of Osteopathy.
Other courses I have completed are: Propioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Knee Rehabilitation for Physiotherapy, Head and Upper Limb Rehabilitation, Ankle Rehabilitation, Syndromes and Rheumatic Illnesses; Spine, Thorax and Lower Limb Rehabilitation, Muscle-tendon Injuries, Prevention & Therapeutic Method, Major Sports injuries, Pilates for Physiotherapists.
In 2012 I moved to the UK ( Southampton) to start working for Physio&Therapy Sports Physiotherapy Clinic where I provided physiotherapy treatments and sports massage for one year, after which I decided to run my own clinic, The Physical Therapy which specialises in both sports injuries and everyday injuries. Runners, triathletes, footballers and rugby players are my most common customers though.
The main reason I studied as a health professional was to have the opportunity to help people through my work, which is very gratifying. Now I have the opportunity to help through The Physical Therapy Blog as well, which makes me enjoy a lot.
I have always been interested in sports such as running, cycling, swimming, rugby and basketball, but football has been my main sport as I was a footballer for 9 years.
Nowadays my interests are swimming, trekking, dancing and nature, as well as continuing to study to increase my knowledge and skills in my profession.
