Carla is a qualified Physiotherapist, who graduated with a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy from Manchester Metropolitan University. Before coming to the UK, Carla studied Athletic Therapy in Canada (Quebec) and is a certified Canadian Athletic therapist (CAT(C)). From the elite athlete to the sedentary lifestyle patient, Carla has experience with treating acute, chronic and post-operative musculoskeletal injuries. She has worked with football, basketball, cheerleading and ice hockey teams as well as with an adolescent clientele. Carla uses a combination of manual therapy and goal-oriented exercises in order to get her patients back to their level of function and fitness.
She believes that good education and communication skills are key in building an individualised treatment plan for her patients. Outside of the clinic, Carla enjoys hiking, playing Australian football and travelling. Growing up, she lived in 3 different countries, thus, she fluently speaks English, French and Spanish.
