About Us

Joanne Houlbrook

My profession helps people achieve

their goals and at times makes what seems impossible a reality. Sometimes all a person needs is a guiding hand to take the first step.

Your Health In Our Hands

I qualified in 2004 from St Georges Hospital Medical School in London with a BSC Hons in physiotherapy. I began my career at the Lothian United Hospital trust in the New Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, which is a large teaching hospital. I gained invaluable experience in a range of specialities such as medicine of the elderly, cardiothoracic, acute stroke, department of clinical neuroscience and respiratory medicine as a junior physiotherapist. I progressed to be a senior by 2006 on a medical specialist rotation and consolidated my skills in medicine of the elderly, acute stroke, A&E, general medicine, neurosurgery and neuro medicine. Treating a wide range of complex conditions both for general rehab and chest care. 

In 2009 I moved back to Cheshire where I have worked in a range of hospitals in the area and gained more experience in my core area of speciality and gained skills in orthopaedics and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I have worked both in the community and acute settings and hope that the wealth of skills in rehab and respiratory physiotherapy that I have learned will allow me to help my patients achieve their very best.

I have supervised students and junior members of staff throughout my career which has been extremely rewarding and often thought provoking to hear new ideas come through 
the profession. I’m a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, CSP and registered with the Health and Care Professionals Councils, HCPC.

Physiotherapy is an unsung hero with some areas being relatively unknown outside of the medical world. Over my 14-year career I can honestly say I’ve helped to improve thousands of patients lives, which is an absolute joy. My profession helps people achieve their goals and at times makes what seems impossible a reality. Sometimes all a person needs is a guiding hand to take the first step.
