We are now working in partnership with Rachel Nakash a Chartered and State Registered Physiotherapist. Rachel graduated from Coventry University in 1991 with an honour’s degree in Physiotherapy. After completing numerous post graduate courses, Rachels interest in research and evidence based practice led to her completing a PhD in Health Sciences at Warwick University in 2007. Having worked over the years at various private physiotherapy clinics in the area, including a 10 year stretch at Witty Pask and Buckingham in Northampton, Rachel now has her own private practice and also offers domiciliary visits where she ‘brings her clinic into your home or workplace’. Rachel is very much a ‘hands on’ therapist whose clinical interests lie in manual therapies such as deep soft tissue massage and myofascial release for musculo-skeletal problems – be they as a result of a sports injury, overuse, posture or surgery. She is also qualified to administer acupuncture for pain relief. Rachel is also a firm believer in the power of communication and places a big emphasis during treatment sessions on explaining the possible causes of the patient’s symptoms to them as well as discussing the patient’s own beliefs about their symptoms. As Rachel explains; ‘De-mystifying the cause of a patient’s pain can have a huge positive effect on their whole pain perception and recovery experience’. We are looking forward to working together with Rachel to give our clients an even more ‘complete’ service in their journey to health and fitness.
