Sarah Watson

Specialist Physiotherapist Neurology

MCSP BSc (Hons)

Sarah joined Leeds Neurophysiotherapy at the start of 2017, working two days a week at the practice. Bringing her valuable experience, Sarah is currently working in a specialist NHS lead role. Since 2004 she has been working for Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust, in numerous areas, ranging from the Stroke Unit to the Specialist Neuro Rehab Centre. She works part-time as the clinical lead on the Combined Stroke and Neuro Unit at Dewsbury District Hospital. Her caseload is varied, covering a wide range of neurological conditions including treating people with brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, neuropathies, spinal cord compression and Guillain Barré Syndrome. She uses an eclectic approach to treat her patients, including Bobath principles and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation.

Sarah, as all the therapists at the practice, has a high commitment to helping each individual reach their full potential in recovery and independence. According to Sarah, “clinical work gives me a great amount of pleasure and satisfaction, and I enjoy forming relationships with the patients that I treat, and their families or carers”. Sarah is highly motivated to keep herself up to date with treatment approaches and supporting evidence; as well as self-guided learning she attends frequent lectures and relevant clinical courses, often offering teaching to other members of staff. She also supports the professional development of the Yorkshire Neurophysiotherapy community after joining the ACPIN (Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Neurology) committee in 2016.
