about me

KHPhysiotherapy is owned and run by me….Kerstine.

I qualified as a sports injury and rehabilitation therapist in 2009 after studying for 2 years at The Midlands School of Massage in Nottingham. Prior to this I was a serving Fire Fighter with Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service. I continued on to train as a physiotherapist at the University of Nottingham after working for the NHS in a busy, local community NeuroRehabilitation team. After working within a local respiratory team and for a private company dealing with mainly whiplash patients I realised I wanted to offer my patients a much more personalised, hands on experience so I set up KHPhysiotherapy.

My goals for every patient are to provide them with a comfortable, welcoming environment and give them the support, education and advice for them to be able to take ownership of their condition and move forwards along their road to recovery. Setting up my business in my community means I can support local people and hopefully continue to develop links between local GPs, groups and businesses. This year in addition to providing physiotherapy services, I also hope to see the seated exercise group take off, to bring the running workshops and couch to 5k course to the James Street clinic (see the Other Services Tab for more details). From a personal point of view I also have new running goals to aim for this year. To read more about these goals please see the news section

This June I completed one of the oldest and most challenging ultra runs in the world. The West Highland Way Race see’s entrants take on the might of the Scottish Highlands across 95 miles of some of the most stunning scenery in the UK. Weather conditions were absolutely horrendous and sapped every last drop of strength and mental focus from me. It really was the hardest thing I have ever done but I soldiered on to complete it in 30 hours 27 mins and step up at the prize ceremony to claim my beautiful, exclusive cut glass goblet. The mind and body are stronger than we give them credit for and for most of us the biggest hurdle is often the mind. Tame that and you can tame anything.
