In the early part of Jane’s career she spent time working in America and then as a veterinary physio on her return the the UK. For 3 years she was a split human/animal physio until 2005 where she returned to human physiotherapy practice full time.
Over the past 10 years Jane’s specialism in the foot and ankle has grown. She now works in a specialist clinic alongside podiatrists and osteopaths who work as a team to manage complex conditions.
Jane was kind enough to contribute to the foot and ankle course so make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to learn from her wealth of experience. Watch this video to really appreciate the complexities of the foot. It is amazing how small problems such as a painful corn can create a long standing secondary issue.
