Joanna has been committed to women’s health since she trained at St Thomas’ Hospital, and currently works as a clinical specialist at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton. She has worked in this field for 17 years, leading the women’s health physio team at St George’s Hospital for 9 years, during which time she set up a multidisciplinary perineal clinic for women with severe perineal birth trauma.
Treatment of third and fourth degree tears remains one of her key interests, as well as post natal pelvic floor problems including bladder leakage(stress and urge incontinence), prolapsed, pelvic floor muscle laxity and weakness, pain with sexual activity, bowel problems(including leakage) and pelvic pain.
Joanna also treats patients who are referred pre and post gynaecological surgery, as well as for ante and post natal exercise in the childbearing year including women with diastasis recti (separated abdominal muscles).
Away from work, Joanna has two children, and loves to spend her free time laughing, cooking and eating with friends and family, dancing, exercise classes and walking alongside the Thames. She also enjoys karaoke, though her enthusiasm rather than her talents shine through!
Joanna holds clinics at Wimbledon Village 3-4 times per week as well as monthly clinics at Hinchley Wood. Find out more about Women’s Health clinic.
