My name is Stephanie Murray MCSP BSc (Hons). I began practicing as a professional Physiotherapist in 2010.
I have worked with the NHS since qualifying and worked in all fields of physiotherapy specialising as a senior physio in musculoskeletal physiotherapy since 2012. I have a lot of experience working with acute injuries previously working with national league one rugby players and I am currently the physio for the Torbay Trojans American Football team.
I am also now the primary local contact and physiotherapist as part of the ‘Seafit Programme’ funded by the seafarers hospital society and fishermen’s mission. This is an amazing national scheme to be part of, giving back to my local community, as it promotes and encourages local Devon and Cornwall fishermen and all seafarers to keep fit for work including management of any injuries at sea.
My extensive medical knowledge combined with an ongoing curiosity to learn about the latest evidence based treatments helps me to keep up to date and learn more.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a degree based profession. Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
As physios we help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. We work to maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.We also facilitate recovery and enabling people to stay in work.
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well-being, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical conditions and preparation e.g. an upcoming sporting event or even childbirth. At Tidal Physiotherapy we aim to be realistic in how many treatment sessions are advised after your assessment, with the end goal to reduce repeated sessions needed in the future for that condition.
Our treatment is based on relevant evidence and research which we constantly review and update.
