Helping you back to health

I am a Totnes based Physiotherapist with 26 years experience working in hospitals, clinics and home settings.

What I do

More than physiotherapy, I will take the time to learn about who you are, what you want and the best approach to help you towards better health.
  • Treatment at home
  • Recovery following a hospital admission, accident or illness including longer term disabilities such as stroke
  • Skilled advice and treatment options for all range of ailments or pain related conditions
  • A wider approach (if requested) looking into nutrition, emotional influences and general well-being.
A client during hydrotherapy – I use a wide variety of approaches to suit your needs.

I recently had 5 intensive treatments with Carolina for a long term back problem which has affected my walking for years. The sessions plus exercises she recommended have vastly improved my mobility. I am thrilled with the result.

How I work

Physiotherapy is a hands-on, all-round management of symptoms. Treatment may include mobilisation, gentle adjustments, soft tissue work, acupuncture and massage.
  • Inadequate rehab / post- hospital discharge
  • Stroke and neurological conditions
  • Falls or difficulties with mobility / balance
  • Joint, muscle or ligament issues / pain
  • Exercise plans aimed at getting you where you want to be
  • Options of hydrotherapy, gym or sports centre based sessions

I had been suffering with dizziness and headaches on and off for years. I have been having sessions with Carolina in my home for 8 months now and I can honestly say I feel like a different person. She’s wonderful!

I couldn’t believe that Physiotherapy would benefit me four years after a stroke that left me with severe balance problems. I was wrong. Carolina patiently and effectively worked with me in my home setting in both floor, standing and walking routines. I am now able to walk without holding onto somebody and I feel fantastic.

I wish to express my sincere thanks for all the treatment you have given me since my accident last year. First rate treatment I call it. I am certain that without your skill and dedication I would be wheelchair bound by now.
