Owner, Lead Physiotherapist

Vinita Sood

Vinita has 30 years experience in the assessment and treatment of back, neck and joint problems including arthritis and injuries as well as the management of pre and post-operative orthopaedic patients.

I became a Physiotherapist as I felt that a career spent in helping people by easing their pain and increasing movement would be both rewarding and challenging. Over the years I have derived great satisfaction from seeing patients benefit from my treatment and regain improved mobility, function and quality of life.
