Elisabeth Briggs MCSP SRP

Liz qualified in 1997, becoming a chartered and state registered physiotherapist. She gained general experience at the University Hospitals of Wales and then Southampton University Hospitals NHS trust before specialising in Neurological rehabilitation.

For the following 10 years she worked for the Wolverhampton community trust where she worked in all areas of neurological rehab. This included outpatients which enabled her to treat a wide and varied caseload of conditions including Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Head Injury and Peripheral Neuropathy which are just some of the examples. Liz also developed a community service for patients with neurological deficit.

She is trained in the Bobath concept, which aims to restore function and regain normal movement in the neurologically impaired. The Bobath concept is widely accepted as the front line treatment for stroke victims.

In 2004 Liz helped in the development of the SB Sports Injury & Physiotherapy Clinic and has continued to assess and rehabilitate patients in the community through the clinic.

In 2009 as part of the clinic Liz also joined the Huntercombe Private Hospital working in adolescent mental health, specialising in the rehabilitation of young people with eating disorders. As part of her role she has developed classes in relaxation, massage and tai chi to help manage anxiety and stress.
