A day in the life of a physiotherapist

My name is James Lee and I am a physiotherapist working in the musculoskeletal service in Buckinghamshire.

I completed an undergraduate sport rehabilitation degree followed by a Physiotherapy masters and joined Care UK once I had graduated.

I knew once I started the Physiotherapy degree that I wanted to work in musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and therefore joining a static MSK role was the best choice for me.  Flexible hours and no weekend on call allowed me to also pursue my interest in sport.

The support I have had since graduating has allowed me to develop as an autonomous practitioner in a more diverse MSK role than normal.  Access to diagnostic imaging, support of MSK GP and APP and managing the whole patient pathway through to orthopaedics has really aided the development of my clinical reasoning.

I have been involved in service audit, presenting a poster at the 2018 Physiotherapy UK conference and also written a leaflet for patients with back pain, published by the marketing team.  Both encouraged and supported by Care UK.
