Linsey Swinburne BSc SRP MCSP
Lead Neurological Physiotherapist and Director
I am the Lead Physiotherapist at Complete Neuro Physio. I qualified in 2004 at the University of Hertfordshire. I have worked in the National Health Service at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, Walsall teaching PCT, Moseley Hall Hospital, and West Midlands Rehabilitation Centre. I have gained experience treating a wide range of neurological conditions including Stroke, Acquired Brain Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Injury and other long term neurological conditions such as MS and Parkinson’s Disease. I now work independently, providing a service to patients in clinic locations, therapy centres or in their own homes.
My experience includes working in inpatient neurological rehabilitation, FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) clinics, Specialist Orthotic clinics, and treating patients in their own homes. I am trained to deliver manual handling training.
I am passionate about neurological rehabilitation and thoroughly enjoy working with patients to help them achieve their full potential. Since I chose to specialise in neurology, I have focussed my continuing professional development on spasticity management, rehabilitation technologies, splinting (serial casting) and manual therapy skills to help in treatment of long term conditions. I am also accredited to carry out acupuncture for pain relief.
I work closely with family members and support workers, I offer advice and recommendations to optimise rehabilitation over the 24 hour period. This may be in the form of posture and positioning advice, home exercise programmes, stretches, splinting and mobility advice.
I am able to provide assessment for rehabilitation technologies such as SaeboFlex, SaeboReach and SaeboStretch, Bioness L300 and H200, and Odstock drop foot stimulators (PACE).
In my personal life I enjoy taking part in endurance events such as cycling and marathon running, I recently completed the Mont Blanc Marathon in France for the charity Different Strokes. I also enjoy spending time with my husband and two young daughters.
