Clare O’Neill

Clare O'NeillClare has been part of the physiotherapy team, working in the Stockton Heath and Lymm Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic since July 2007.

Clare trained at Coventry University and graduated with First Class honours in 2002.  Her first job was in Oxford Radcliffe NHS Trust where she worked from 2002 to 2006.  Clare left Oxford to move back to her home town of Warrington. She started to work for the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University NHS Trust, where she continues to work now, in a large musculoskeletal physiotherapy department.

Since 2005 Clare has specialised in musculoskeletal physiotherapy.  Her training and work in Liverpool University hospitals with specialist orthopaedic consultants and renowned clinical physiotherapy specialists has enabled her to gain expert knowledge of common and complex musculoskeletal conditions, and therefore management from a physiotherapy and surgical approach.

Clare’s ongoing work within the NHS allows her to keep up to date with current surgical management and post operative treatment of many common surgical orthopaedic procedures. These include total hip and knee replacements, arthroscopic surgical procedures, spinal disectomies and decompression surgery.

Clare’s expertise is in sports rehabilitation of lower limb injuries e.g. muscle strains or ligament injuries. In addition her interest also extends to complaints resulting from biomechanical dysfunction or abnormal or impaired functioning of the mechanics of the body e.g. patella femoral joint problems or iliotibial band syndrome.

A keen runner who has competed herself in the London marathon, Clare enjoys progressing acute injury management of common running and other sporting complaints, right through to sports specific rehabilitation.
