Nicola Mulkeen BSc (Hons) MCSP; HCPC registered
 

I have worked as a physiotherapist since 2000 therefore have a wealth of experience in all core areas including specialist areas of paediatrics and more recently in the field of women's health.

My work in paediatrics saw me travelling overseas where I had the opportunity to work in New Zealand. Here I gained valuable experience working in the community and immersing myself in new culture and different ways of working.

I have since developed skills in both the private and NHS sector, and I have particular interest in clinical pilates, acupuncture and manual therapy techniques.

I work as a specialist in Women's and Men's Health at a local hospital which includes treating women during and after pregnancy and managing both men and women with continence issues (bladder and bowel). I have experience working with both men and women after breast cancer surgery to help restore shoulder function post operatively.

I find my job both rewarding and challenging and can't wait to find out what’s in store each day at work.
