More about me and Ali Cann Physio (your local physio in Bexley)

Hello and welcome to my blog! Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and take a look around. I intend to use this blog to give you more information and free resources to help as many people as possible.

I have been working as a physiotherapist for over 10 years, since qualifying from the University of Southampton in 2011. I started off in the NHS working in a mixture of settings before settling into musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I had always thought I would want to work with elite sports people but I discovered women’s health physiotherapy and I knew I had found something I was really passionate about. I completed further training with the Pelvic Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP) to further my knowledge in this area.

I have been working as a physio in Bexley for the last 6 years. Since working in private practice I have been able to continue working as both a women’s health and musculoskeletal physiotherapist and I love the variety this gives me. I feel this makes me a more rounded physiotherapist which is better for my clients. Nothing makes me happier than being able to share my knowledge and use my skills to help people and make them feel better. Your feedback means so much to me.

As a child, I always loved exercise and sport. I swam competitively for many years and played hockey and netball for my school. My favourite subjects in school were biology and P.E, so physiotherapy seemed the ideal job for me! At university I joined the swimming team and started running. After uni, I took up triathlon and qualified for the amateur European Triathlon Championships where I got to represent team GB which was an amazing experience despite getting injured just weeks before the race. This means I truly understand what it’s like to go through and come out the other side of a sporting injury!

I am a mum to 3 young boys, and being pregnant and giving birth has brought with it new challenges for my body. Each birth was different and I have learnt new things each time to help with my recovery, which I can now share with you. After having my first child, I completed the Mummy MOT Practitioner course and now helping mums postnatally is one of my favourite things.
