Lindsey Lennon

Clinical Director

BSc (Hons) MCSP HPC Chartered Physiotherapist

Lindsey qualified from Salford university in 2001 and has since gained invaluable experience working in the North West at a number of private physiotherapy clinics, as well as working as an on-site physiotherapist in the Occupational Health Departments of a number of large blue chip companies.

In her training she worked alongside Physiotherapists, Doctors and Podiatrists at a Premiership football club and was given the opportunity to observe Orthopaedic Consultants during surgery.

These experiences reinforced her ambition to specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders and brought her to where she is today, a specialist in the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

Since qualifying Lindsey has attended many postgraduate courses to extend her clinical skills, including an AACP approved acupuncture course. She is currently studying at Masters level in Orthopaedic Medicine.

As well as being an ex-Cheshire County Lacrosse player Lindsey is a keen runner and fitness enthusiast, which she feels helps her to identify with the physical demands placed upon the body during sporting activities. Furthermore she understands at first hand the benefits of bespoke rehabilitation programmes to suit the needs of the individual patient.

Lindsey has worked with patients suffering with an array of injuries and conditions from the young to the elderly, including pain related to work (overuse and ergonomic pathologies) pre and post pregnancy, sport, pre and post operative, osteo-arthritic changes and neurological dysfunction. Her aim is to reduce your pain quickly and effectively so you can regain a pain free way of life in the shortest possible time.

She takes pride in offering you the very best in physiotherapy services but will advise when further specialist opinion is indicated and direct and help get you the necessary referral through the NHS or private healthcare.

Dawn Cocker BSc (Hons) Sports Masseur: cert Ed, IIHT, IIST, MIPTI, VTCT, F.A.

Dawn has worked in this area for 12 years, specializing in sports massage and injury treatment and prevention as well as massage in pregnancy.
Dawn works as a both as a clinician, a tutor and assessor for sports massage, training physiotherapists, osteopaths and sports rehabilitators.

Dawn understands the importance of working as a multi-disciplinary team member as works very closely with the physiotherapists at the clinic.
Dawn’s client base is wide in their requirements; Dawn treats very serious athletes both pre and post event as well as people wanting to maintain their well being in general. A growing client group are those that develop postural muscle pain secondary to working at a desk and driving; managing symptoms improves productivity, reduces absenteeism and helps in maintaining a general sense of wellbeing.

Dawn is qualified to massage pregnant women and at the Cheadle Hulme Physio we have a pregnancy pillow that allows you to lie on your front, allowing a comprehensive treatment.
Dawn does use hot stones in some of her treatments – don’t think this is a relaxing beauty treatment. The hot stones are used to get deeper into sore spots without excessive pain and it is VERY effective – mention you want to have this when booking, it doesn’t alter the price.

Chris Hughes Bsc (Hons) MSST Sports Therapist

Chris has always been interested in sport and health, and from an early age enjoyed many sports at a high level from football to tennis. However, with his passion for sport came consequences and he was constantly in need of injury treatment. He saw several physios himself and became intrigued with all the sport injury treatment he received and decided that this is what he wanted to do as a career.
Chris graduated in 2007 as a Sports Therapist and has since worked at Sale Sharks rugby team and the Great Britain Taekwando Team at the World Championships in 2010. Chris has a passion for helping people and passing his knowledge onto them, so they too understand what is happening within their own body. “I think it is vital that the patient learns about their own injuries and can treat their symptoms and the cause to prevent future problems”.
