Kay Atkin

Specialist MSK Physiotherapist & Clinics Operational Lead, Pure Physiotherapy

Biography

I am a physiotherapist who has specialised in MSK following a varied career working in elite sport, the NHS and private practice. I completed by Bsc (hons) Physiotherapy in 2007 and a Msc Sports Injury Rehabilitation in 2014. However, apart from being a physiotherapist by profession, I am also a patient, who has to go through the same battles as many other patients we see, after being diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome following an accident at 14.
