Director and Clinical Lead

Musculoskeletal, Sports Injuries, Pilates, Acupuncture

Julie graduated from the Cambridge School of Physiotherapy in 1991. She worked for 1 year at Watford General Hospital before moving to Canada for a year to work in a busy outpatient clinic outside of Toronto. Whilst there, she also worked with a local ice hockey team, starting her passion for sports medicine.

On her return to England, Julie studied for a Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy and worked for 7 years at the BUPA Hospital Bushey, setting up the Sports Injuries Clinic, and supervised physiotherapy students from the University of Hertfordshire on their clinical placements. During this time, she worked with various football, rugby, and hockey teams, which involved international tours, including a trip to the Maccabiah Games in Israel as physio to the rugby and hockey squads.

Julie has since gained post-grad qualifications in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, acupuncture, and Pilates, and has completed an MSc in Physiotherapy from the University of East London.

Julie started Radlett Physiotherapy Ltd (formerly known as Peak Physio) at the Gingerbread House, Shenley in 2001 which built in to a busy practice. It moved in 2011 to larger premises in Radlett, where it continues to thrive.

Julie is the Clinical Lead at the practice and specialises in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and sports medicine treating a wide range of spinal, joint, and muscular complaints, as well as chronic pain and acute injuries. She also teaches Pilates classes from the practice.

Julie teaches and lectures part-time. She has taught on the MSc Physiotherapy programme at the University of Birmingham and has supervised students on clinical placements. She has lectured to a variety of sports clubs on Injury Prevention, and to school children on Posture and Back Care.
