Emma McCabe qualified in 2008 from Teesside University with a 2:1 in Physiotherapy. She commenced her career in private practice in Australia, where developed a real interest in sports and work based injuries. She qualified in Western Acupuncture and Dry Needling and started using Pilates as a rehabilitation tool, especially effective for long term problems. Upon returning to the UK, she has worked in array of settings; private practice, hospitals, GP practices, gyms and within peoples homes. Emma uses her knowledge in Pilates (DMA and APPI) and exercise rehabilitation to fully rehabilitate patients after injury or illness. She applies a ‘whole body’ approach and endeavours to solve a problem by finding the root cause. She is a very ‘hands on’ practitioner and uses a variety of mobilisation techniques, such as Maitland, Mulligans and some osteopathic techniques. Emma is also trained in sports massage and uses a variety of massage techniques such as trigger point release, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques and deep tissue. In addition, Acupuncture/Dry needling can be used to target difficult areas. Emma also has a special interest in Parkinson’s and is a qualified PDWarrior Instructor; these are bespoke exercises designed to challenge the neuromuscular system and therefore increase neuroplasticity (changes to the body and brain). This is especially beneficial for people just diagnosed with Parkinson’s. Emma can help with assessing posture related problems and can provide a full workstation assessment too.
