Gillian Brooks, PTA
General Physical Therapy, Physical & Occupational Therapy
I always feel honored to work with each individual who entrusts their body to my care. When patients come to physical therapy it is often at a low point, feeling vulnerable, having lost a degree of independence or the ability to fulfill previous roles and functions . As your PTA I will do my best to address your concerns and questions with respect and sensitivity. You and I will set targets together and we will work to achieve your maximum potential taking in to account your own goals and lifestyle. As a former Occupational Therapist and Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist, I bring a holistic approach to your rehabilitation. And hopefully an element of fun too! I look forward to meeting you!
General musculoskeletal injuries, orthopedics, soft tissue work
We moved to the US from England in 2008 so I still enjoy being a tourist wherever and whenever possible! I love exploring and finding hidden gems of neighborhoods or quirky events which I would never find in Britain. Bring your suggestions to your treatment sessions! I love photography, tandem kayaking with my husband (once we stopped arguing about who was in charge of steering!). We have a Goldendoodle called Stan who I trained with so we could do Assisted Animal Therapy at Edward Hospital. I am a terrible baker and am constantly trying to avoid being forced on to the TV show ‘Nailed It’ by my long suffering adult daughters.
