Rachel Langford

Bsc(Hons) MCSP. HPC Post Grad Dip.

Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist.

Rachel looks after the neurology side of things. After qualifying in 1998 she soon realised her passion for working in neurology and that’s where she has been for the last 10 years. Working largely with people who have Multiple Sclerosis or Post Stroke, as well as many other neurological conditions has given her an in-depth experience of this speciality. Attending, organising and occasionally speaking on various courses and conferences also helps keep her as up to date as possible with the latest treatment approaches for neurological conditions.

In addition to her physiotherapy role she has also been a manual handling trainer for most her career training up to 200 staff annually. She feels quite passionately that unpaid carers, often family members, may be in need of advice, encouragement and support when looking after loved ones who need physical assistance as much, if not more than employed carers. Her experience in this area means that she is able to provide training and advice as well as problem solve specific situations, whether for individuals or corporate training.
