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 ( Southamptonto 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.

I am member of the Health and Care Professions Council and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

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.
