This week, Rachael Lowe of Physiopedia speaks to Rachel Young about her passion for increasing the use of exercise in the rehabilitation of neurology patients.
Rachel Young is a senior lecturer and neurology specialist from Sheffield Hallam University UK and has twenty years experience in the field. She has an evolving interest in exercise and physical activity and is active in developing exercise prescription skills amongst physiotherapists through developments within the under-graduate, post-graduate and CPD provision at SHU.
Rachel is currently a research assistant for a service evaluation focussed upon a physical activity programme for participants with long term musculoskeletal changes. Her planned doctoral study will involve the evaluation of accessible exercise equipment for people with MS.
Rachel was a presenter at Physiotherapy UK’s 2015 conference and where she spoke about enhancing exercise prescription in the physiotherapy curriculum at Sheffield Hallam University.
