Ulrike joined Lynn as a Lead Physiotherapist from December 2014. She qualified as a Physiotherapist in Germany in 1990 and has worked in hospitals and private clinics in Germany and the UK, including 12 years at a local NHS Trust. She specialises in working with people with neurological and neuromuscular conditions. She loves doing ‘hands-on’ work with patients, supporting people to achieve their goals, live independently and improve their quality of life.
Apart from working clinically, Ulrike is keen to promote and develop the therapy services at the MD Support Centre further. She is passionate about integrating research and other evidence and the model of patient centred care. Ulrike completed a Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy at Coventry University in August 2016, obtaining First Class. Her dissertation was about the Aquatic Therapy Classes we run at the Centre, ‘Exploring the experiences of adults with neuromuscular conditions who attend aquatic therapy classes – a qualitative study’.
She also provides private Physiotherapy for people with other neurological conditions. Outside work, Ulrike enjoys spending time with her husband and her teenage daughters, being outdoors, especially horse- riding and going camping.
