New Zealander Lauren decided she wanted to become a physiotherapist aged 13 when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament and needed a lot of rehabilitation. This gave her an insight into how physiotherapy works and how much enjoyment it's possible to get from helping motivated people get better! It also gave her a really in-depth understanding of how it feels to have a nasty injury that prevents you from doing the things you love, and how to get motivated to work through it... Fortunately, Lauren subsequently made a full recovery, and even represented New Zealand at football, as well as enjoying tennis and Latin dancing.
Lauren studied physiotherapy at the University of Otago, and since then, she has worked all over the world, in top clinics in Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. She brings years of truly international experience to Victory, and we're enjoying picking her brains and learning the best of what each country has to offer. Lauren's especial interest, unsurprisingly, is knee injuries; but she is also a keen Pilates teacher (learned in Canada and Australia) so runs our Pilates sessions - and also loves working with shoulder injuries. So if you've got a dodgy knee or shoulder, or need a stronger core, then why not give us a call on 0207 175 0150 and book an assessment with Lauren?

What I do
Everything in your body is connected.
An injury in one place can lead to compensation and further injury in another. So when you feel pain, you need to know where the trouble stems from. At Victory, which is just two minutes from Liverpool Street and Moorgate, I find, analyse and tackle the cause of your pain, rather than just looking at the symptoms. Once I've located the problem, I can help you get better and better. No temporary fixes - I only deal in long-term solutions.
