Ms Brigette Higinbottom

Physiotherapist

I have been working as a Physiotherapist for over 15years. I have completed my Masters in Health Practice in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and currently work part-time, being in the clinic 9am-3pm on Monday's and Thursdays as I have three young girls. I enjoy working alongside my patients to reach their rehabiitation goals, I like educating and empowering individuals to understand their injuries and therefore take control of their management as much as they can. I enjoy a tricky challenge and delving to the bottom of some longer-term injuries. I teach a Pilates class at the clinic once per week and enjoy bringing some Pilates principles into my Physiotherapy management. I also do some vocational rehabilitation and like seeing individuals making a successful return to work. » View details
