My name is Emma Johnson. I qualified as a physiotherapist from Coventry University in 2008 and began my career in the NHS one month after graduating.
My first post was at Loughborough Hospital in the musculoskeletal outpatient department and I worked there until March 2011. I decided during this time that musculoskeletal physiotherapy was the area of physiotherapy that I wanted to continue working in and have therefore specialised in this area ever since.
From Loughborough I moved to South Gloucestershire Community Health Services, based in Bristol, and again worked in musculoskeletal outpatients. During this time I also worked at a private physiotherapy clinic and covered some injury clinics for a football team.
After longing for a return to the Midlands, in September 2013 I started working at Queen’s Hospital, Burton-on-Trent as a Senior Musculoskeletal Outpatient Physiotherapist. Within this role I have worked in different specialist teams including Upper Limb, Lower Limb, Spinal and Rheumatology so have a wide range of skills in treating a variety of conditions.
I started my own practice to allow me to continue working in the career that I am passionate about whilst also caring for my young family. I also continue to work one day a week in my NHS post at Queen’s Hospital.
As a family we love being active and outdoors and enjoy walking the dog, bouncing on the trampoline in the garden and seaside holidays. We hope to return to skiing holidays when the children are a bit bigger!
