About me

Holly received her B.Sc.O.T. qualification in 1997 from the University of Tennessee in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. She is registered with Health Care and Professionals Council (OT 46492) and a member of the British Association of Hand Therapists as well as the British Association of Occupational Therapists. She has provided hand therapy services both in the USA and in the UK for the past 12 years. She works with patients with many different types of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder problems, managing acute as well as chronic problems, providing conservative treatment as well as dealing with post-operative care. She works closely with several noted orthopaedic and plastics consultants in the Northwest area. She is active in researching the latest evidence as it relates to practice in upper limb rehabilitation and in providing training to other clinicians.

She is proficient in all aspects of assessment and treatment modalities including custom splinting, soft tissue release, joint mobilisation, wound care, kineseotaping, and oedema management. She has experience treating a wide variety of diagnoses including carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren's contracture, DeQuervain's tenosynovitis, wrist sprain/strain, repetitive stress injury, fractures, osteo and rheumatoid arthritis and complex cases including CRPS and dystonia.

'This is an area in which I am passionate and striving continually to perfect my skills and provide the highest quality care to my clients, through research, development of evidence based practice, and seeking opportunities to learn new treatment techniques.'
