Lynn Ward

Co-Lead Physiotherapist

Lynn graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1997 and began her career as a rotational physiotherapist around Stafford and the West Midlands.  After gaining experience in a variety of clinical settings, she spent 4 years from 2001 working on a busy, acute, neurosurgical ward on the outskirts of Toronto in Canada.

Returning to the UK in 2005 she took on a Senior Physiotherapist role at an independent Neuro-Rehab Hospital in Godalming, Surrey.  And after 12 months she decided to venture into the world of private neuro physiotherapy.

In 2008, she and her husband moved back to the midlands, where she continued with private neuro physiotherapy – treating individuals following strokes, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, MS, PD either in their homes or within a clinic setting. Lynn further developed hands-on techniques as well as assistive technologies such as Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) and SaeboFlex.

More recently Lynn has become a certified APPI Pilates instructor and incorporate this into her treatment, combining this with hands-on manual techniques, general exercise, advice and support.

Lynn joined the MD Support Centre back in 2013 whenever it first opened, offering the centres very first physiotherapy assessments and subsequent treatments - she has been of central importance to the centre and its growth, since its inception.
