About Jemma Donald, the Physio

Jemma qualified as a chartered Physiotherapist in July 2004 from Birmingham University. She worked for the NHS at the Royal Preston Hospital for three years where she worked alongside leading spinal surgeons, lower limb and shoulder specialists gaining valuable experience in acute and chronic musculoskeletal and orthopaedic problems. During this time, she also worked for a private sports injury clinic where she furthered her knowledge and skills in sports injury assessment, treatment and prevention. In 2007 she moved back to her hometown of Penrith where she continued to work as a Senior Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist for the NHS. Jemma took over a private clinic in Penrith in 2007 before taking a break to start a family. In 2013 she set up Absolute Physiotherapy and now works part-time private and part-time NHS.

Since qualifying Jemma has undertaken extensive postgraduate study gaining a diploma in orthopaedic medicine, certificates in acupuncture, clinical pilates, biomechanics of the lower limb, orthotics, achilles tendinopathy treatment and dynamic taping. Currently she is studying towards a PGC in higher Education on a part-time basis. She has a specialist interest in biomechanics and uses her skills in analysis of movement to underpin her assessment and diagnosis.
