After training in diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases, I changed tack towards the rehabilitation of chronic neurological and other complex disabilities.  I contribute a medical approach to the multidisciplinary rehab team and bring some non-medical ideas to the acute medical & surgical teams looking after people in the initial stages of their illnesses, or in the community.  I help to maintain or regain lost range of movement in joints due to stiff muscles (spasticity) with pills, injections, splints and implanted pumps.

I look after people who have recently become disabled due to acquired brain & spinal cord injuries and most of my out-patients have multiple sclerosis.
