Qualifications & Current Practice

Claire Gardner is a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist.

Claire qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1992, graduating from Cardiff School of Physiotherapy.  Once qualified, Claire worked in the NHS and in private practice around the Midlands before going to work as a physiotherapist in New Zealand.

On returning to the UK, Claire gained a Masters Degree from Coventry University in Manipulative Therapy in 2001.  Since 2000, Claire has worked at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester and now works part-time as an Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioner in the therapy out-patient department at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GHNHSFT) assessing and managing complex spinal, hip, knee and shoulder conditions, working closely with medical colleagues.

Specialised Treatments

Claire is trained in Pilates rehabilitation which helps to improve body awareness, posture, flexibility and strength and is used extensively in the management of low back pain and spinal pain.

Claire uses acupuncture in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions providing pain relief when deemed medically appropriate.  This is particularly helpful for those who cannot use or choose not to use pain relief medication.  A course of acupuncture is necessary for best effect with a minimum of 4 treatments required qualifying for a discounted rate when booked and paid for in advance.

Flexible daytime and evening appointments are available, usually within 24-48 hours of contacting me or at your convenience. If your call cannot be answered, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.
