Ali comes to us with a background in Dance and over 13 years experience in the Fitness industry as a qualified Group Exercise Class Instructor and Personal Trainer.
Working closely with a range of conditions in a gym environment inspired her to re-train as a Physiotherapist, with the aim of better understanding biomechanics and rehabilitation strategies to implement with these clients and future patients.
She qualified from Sheffield Hallam University as a Physiotherapist in 2014, and received a regional award for clinical proficiency during her undergraduate training. Clinically, she’s keen to focus on nurturing good exercise technique to ensure better recovery from injury and assist return to sport.
Ali started her Physiotherapy career at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals covering areas such as Specialist Medicine, Cardiothoracics, and Musculoskeletal (MSK) Outpatients, before specialising in MSK to treat hospital staff for a range of conditions ranging from work-induced back pain to shoulder dysfunctions and supporting their return to work post injury.
In 2017 she left the NHS for a role in private practice treating patients for musculoskeletal pain, occupational health issues, sports injuries, postural imbalances, and continues to develop her skills to benefit her patients. She has a strong interest in creative exercise prescription, and is also qualified in acupuncture.
