Jane West - physiotherapist

Over the past 10 years, I have worked as a Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapist in professional rugby, the NHS and in private practice. I am continually fascinated by just how intelligent the body is. It is our greatest asset and companion throughout life and it adapts and compensates to look after us in ways that we often don’t even realise. 

The experiences we have in life impact on our health and wellness in both positive and negative ways. Our experiences become our stories and they shape who we are on numerous levels. I have seen time and again how not only posture, accidents and sport, but also emotional trauma, stress and significant life events can cause patterns of injuries and pain. I am passionate about offering a more holistic and encompassing blend of therapy which goes beyond and looks at all the interconnections at play to truly get to the root of the problem. I believe that it is from this point that real and lasting change can occur and people can begin to realise their true potential.

Testimonials

Testimonial


'Jane revolutionised my life. I went to Jane with a calf injury which I initially thought I sustained from running. However, the thing that really stands out is that Jane treats the whole person and focuses not only on treating the injury but the cause as well, always looking at the bigger picture. After sessions with Jane, I not only left with the injury treated but a bigger understanding of my body and how to prevent things. Jane made everything make sense, often linking other symptoms together that otherwise would have been missed. Jane has a huge wealth of knowledge regarding a range of treatments including many 'alternative' strategies. Jane was always approachable, put you at ease and interested in you as a person. Nothing was too much trouble. It made physiotherapy sessions something to look forward to.'

Back Pain Client Testimonial


" I have been to see many physiotherapists over the past ten years after suffering from constant back pain. All the physiotherapists that treated me seemed to only be interested in treating the immediate symptoms and not particularly in the long term resolution, giving me generic exercises that didn't seem to work for me. I would be fine whilst being treated, then revert back to the same level of pain not long after treatment stopped.


Then I met Jane. 

Jane was interested in finding out about me as an individual, about my life as a whole and how that impacted the pain I was experiencing. She remembered everything I told her and focussed on my whole body rather than just the immediate area the pain was in. She was very knowledgeable on how the body works holistically and used this to test how each area of my body was impacting my back pain. We discovered the route cause of my pain was due to the stress and tension I was putting my body under on a daily basis and where I was 'holding' that stress.

I can honestly say that 8 months on since my treatment finished that I am experiencing far less pain and now know how to overcome it when I do experience it. The ultimate test of this was at Glastonbury this year when I did not experience any back pain until late on Sunday, whereas since the year 2000 it has been hurting from Wednesday night onwards, clouding each festival with pain from the start - she has literally changed my life!"
