Head of Physiotherapy
Diane has been a Chartered Physiotherapist for over 19 years, qualifying from the University of Birmingham in 2002. She went on to specialise in musculoskeletal outpatients and hand therapy where she developed knowledge and skills that were key to her current practice within the small animal field.
Diane completed her Masters Degree in Veterinary Physiotherapy in 2007, awarded by the Royal Veterinary College, London when she started her owner private practice for equine and small animals. After dividing her time between both human and animal species, she went on to specialise in small animals, joining Davies Veterinary Specialists to head up and develop the Therapy Services in 2011. Growth of the service led to the launch of the Davies Therapy and Fitness Centre in January 2017 where services now include Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Splinting and Orthotics and a Pain Management Clinic including Acupuncture. Diane now leads a growing team of passionate individuals with diverse experiences from within physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
Diane has a special interest in the use of splinting and orthotics for the post-operative and conservative management of musculoskeletal injuries. Diane continues to share her own passion for the work she does by lecturing and being an active clinical educator for the Masters/Post Graduate Veterinary Physiotherapy Programmes in the UK.
“When I joined in 2011, my vision was to create a unique rehabilitation service with excellence and quality at its heart and I couldn’t have achieved what we now have without the committed and dedicated team at Davies Veterinary Specialists. Every single member of our caring and compassionate team aspire to deliver outstanding care to our patients and I love being a part of this.”
