Nora and Ruth have worked as a team for the last 12 years . We are assisted by other associate physiotherapists when needed.
Nora is the lead clinician and established the Wetherby Physiotherapy Practice in1996.
She has wide and varied experience starting with 15 years as a senior Physiotherapist in NHS hospitals in Sheffield, Darlington and Northampton, having also spent 5 years in psychiatric hospitals working with chronic and acute mental illness, Nora developed a particular interest in anxiety management. She has been in private practice since 1996. More recently Nora was proud to be selected to work in the Athletes Village for the duration of the London Olympics.
Her special interest is in the treatment of acute and chronic muscular -skeletal problems. Qualified in the use of acupuncture and trained in Clinical Pilates and the Alexander technique, Nora has great expertise in the diagnosing, relieving and treatment of back problems, sports injuries and neurological conditions. Motivated by a desire to continuously update and develop her skills, the ongoing development of the Wetherby Physiotherapy Practice is her key priority, and the delivery of high quality care for the benefit of her patients/ clients.
Ruth is the perfect “Woman Friday” every business needs. She takes care of business in every sense. Ruth is the person at the other end of the phone answering any queries, making the appointments or acting as a Sat Nav when needed.
Ruth deals with the accounts, invoicing and any problems concerning private health cover. She is the practice’s ‘go to’ woman.
Ruth’s background was in the financial services industry, following which she worked for a number of years as a medical receptionist in Boston Spa surgery. This experience is a perfect match for her present position. In addition she was born and brought up locally and as a result is a well known local figure. Without her organisational skills the practice wouldn’t run as smoothly. On top of which she makes a great cup of coffee! Ruth is a breath of fresh air…just don’t ask her to sing!
Mel is a fully qualified and insured reflexologist with a background in nursing.
She offers individually tailored reflexology treatments here at the practice at a cost of £35 a session.
