BSc (Hons) MCSP 

Anna is a specialist in dizziness and balance disorders including Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) and Vestibular Migraine. More….

Anna studied at King’s College London and graduated with an Upper-Second Class BSc Physiotherapy Degree in 2007. She has a wealth of experience working in the field of adult physiotherapy within community, outpatient, and acute settings.

In 2011 she developed a keen interest in clinical neurology and has gained experience in various specialist neurology centres and NHS trusts in London. Her experience spans across many fields of adult neurology. Anna says “the joy I get from seeing people progress is the best part of everyday”.

After participating in an observational study of the prevalence of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) in older adults at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in 2013, she discovered her aptitude and great interest in vestibular physiotherapy and went on to complete further training in the physiotherapy and multi-disciplinary management of vestibular disorders at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London.

Anna moved to Leeds in 2016 where she now offers a highly specialist, evidence-based Vestibular Rehabilitation service at Leeds Bradford Neurophysiotherapy, helping people with dizziness and balance disorders return to function and improve their quality of lives. Anna’s has been asked to lecture on Vestibular Rehabilitation on several occasions and her lecture in 2019 to over 50 Yorkshire physiotherapists with an interest in neurology (ACPIN) was very well received.

About BPPV
1 in 10 people suffer from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) at some time in their lives, and in 80% of cases treatment is successful and for many will cure the episodic dizziness straight away.
