Alison qualified in 1982 from the Joint Services School of Physiotherapy and worked in various NHS hospitals for 11 years, latterly as head of Out-Patient Physiotherapy at Westmorland General Hospital, Kendal.

On her return to Kendal in 1995 she started at the Kendal Physiotherapy Centre in private practice and became owner and Lead Clinician at the Centre in 1996.
Specialist interests include sports injuries and muscle balance re-education, particularly in relation to chronic back and neck problems for which Alison receives referrals from all over the Northwest. Alison has, over the years, been involved in providing Physiotherapy to Kendal Rugby Club, Sedbergh School, the Territorial Army and various national and international sports events. Since 2001 Alison has been the Physio for the British team at the World Transplant Games, and also coordinated Physiotherapy provision for the British Games which run annually. As an outdoors enthusiast Alison has experience of treating fell runners, cyclists, climbers and walkers and recognises that the need to do these activities often outweighs the need to rest! Treatments are aimed therefore at maximising activity whilst restoring full function!
