Shirley-Ann Walters and Physio First
Shirley-Ann is an active volunteer at her professional association, Physiofirst where she was voted into the community representatives group in 2023. A member since 1992, Shirley-Ann started attending the Physiofirst remote drop-in sessions during lockdown, appreciating the connections and potential for supporting one another whilst embracing our similarities and differences, and representing the wider membership with openness, integrity, and understanding.
Practicing General MSK physiotherapy for over 30 years, Shirley-Ann is dedicated to supporting people to receive the realisations that lead to self-care, consider the wider factors contributing to injury, facilitate healing and prevention of recurrence and the return to life’s flow, using listening, expression and effective practical hands-on physiotherapy techniques.
"I have visited Shirley-Ann for physiotherapy on my knee injury and have been delighted with the results. Not only has the injury been treated efficiently Shirley-Ann provided very intuitive emotional support. This helped me massively and I am very grateful. Shirley-Ann is a very professional, caring and instinctive practitioner and I would happily recommend her services."
