Melanie Parker - Neurological Physiotherapist

Melanie Parker

Neurological Physiotherapist
Melanie qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1990, graduating from the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham. She has over 15 years’ experience of working in the NHS, predominantly in the areas of neurology and elderly rehabilitation.

She recently worked for 7 years as a specialist community physiotherapist in Derby, helping adults with neurological conditions rehabilitate to their maximum physical ability at home.

She has continued updating her knowledge and skills on specific neurological courses such as Bobath and Movement Science and gained a Masters degree in Rehabilitation from the University of Nottingham in 2006.

Melanie started working as a private physiotherapist in 2008, to offer people with long-term neurological conditions, direct and immediate access to a local and highly experienced physiotherapist.

Delays in receiving physiotherapy can have a significant effect on recovering movement or mobility, whether you are having a relapse from Multiple Sclerosis or have recently been discharged from hospital after suffering a stroke. Melanie can offer a range of options to help you reach your full potential, such as an in-depth assessment to review your needs, a course of treatment, or a review of your exercise or fitness programme.

Melanie can help people with adult neurological conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuromuscular conditions such as Muscular Dystrophy and adult Cerebral Palsy
