This month we’re delighted to welcome chartered physiotherapist Beverley Berns to the Archway team. Beverley joins us with over three decades in private and NHS practice, most of which has been spent specialising in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy (MSK). This area of physiotherapy focuses on conditions affecting the joints muscles and soft tissues.Physiotherapist Beverley Berns

Treating illness and injury with MSK physiotherapy

Beverley combines her professional expertise with a caring and empathetic approach to treating patients for a wide range of conditions including arthritis, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, whiplash, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, joint injuries, muscle strains, ligament sprains, repetitive strain injuries and ligament reconstruction. Beverley can also design effective rehabilitation programmes for those in recovery following a fracture. As well as alleviating the symptoms and pain associated with these kinds of conditions, physiotherapy can effectively protect against many of them returning in the future.

A ‘whole body’ approach to treatment

As she has gained her extensive experience in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, Beverley has worked closely with a wide range of GPs and hospital practitioners and is registered with several private health insurance companies including BUPA. Beverley’s ‘whole person’ approach to physiotherapy involves treating injuries, illnesses and disabilities through a combination of manual therapy, movement, exercise and lifestyle advice.

Physiotherapy in the workplace

Beverley has a strong background in workplace assessments. From a physiotherapy point of view, workplace ergonomics is designed to identify and get rid of any risk factors in the working environment such as repetitive or sustained awkward postures or task repetition that could lead to musculoskeletal conditions such as repetitive strain injury. This preventative approach lessens the chance of problems developing and leads to increased performance and productivity in the workforce by improving conditions and reducing days off taken due to workplace-related conditions.

Equine physiotherapy

Beverley’s interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy is complemented by a more unusual interest in equine physiotherapy, which arose through her passion for horse riding. Equine physiotherapy is beneficial for rider and horse alike. Riders find physiotherapy effective in treating the musculoskeletal issues that can arise through riding and it can be used to aid rehabilitation in horses in a range of conditions including osteoarthritis and ligament and tendon damage.
