Emma Levy is a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist who has worked as a physiotherapist in a variety of hospital, private practice and sport settings. She has spent the last few years working with elite athletes and various British Olympic teams, and worked with many of the Team GB athletes in helping them to achieve medals at the Rio 2016 Olympics. She is now a physiotherapist for the British Canoe Slalom team and is working closely with them in the build-up to Tokyo 2020.
Emma is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP) and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports and Exercise Medicine (ACPSEM). Emma qualified from the University of Birmingham in 2006 and obtained her MSc in Advanced Neuro-musculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 2016. She is now a member of the prestigious Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP).
Emma has experience of treating a range of injuries, from acute ankle sprains to chronic lower back pain and will adapt her treatment strategies dependent on whether your goal is to participate in a Triathlon or being able to walk the dog with less pain.
Emma has a holistic approach to her physiotherapy treatment and will consider the health and wellbeing of the whole person rather than just the injured body site. She will therefore provide plenty of advice and education on how to improve your wellbeing through the use of exercise, posture and nutrition, amongst other things.
Emma works closely with a range of other local health practitioners including consultants, sports massage therapists, nutritionists, personal trainers and pilates and yoga instructors and will be happy to suggest onward referral if appropriate.
