Specialist Neurological Physio
Jo Wilson is a Neurological Physiotherapist, which is a specialist area of physiotherapy for treatment and management of people with a disorder affecting the brain, spinal cord or nerves.
Jo completed her Physiotherapy degree at Kings College London in 2007. She worked in the NHS in London for 4 years, completing core rotations in the hospital and community settings, working with adults with a variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.
Jo specialised in rehabilitation and became interested in postural control and retraining movement through Pilates exercises. She completed her APPI certified instructor training in 2011 and since then has taught clinical pilates classes and 1:1 sessions for people with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.
Jo moved to New Zealand in 2011 and continued working in adult rehabilitation, specialising further in neurological conditions, working with adults following stroke, head injury, neurosurgery and neurodegenerative diagnoses.
Jo started becoming interested in treating vertigo and dizziness after she started suffering from vestibular migraines. She saw a need for more vestibular rehabilitation services and attended courses to extend her skills within vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Jo saw more and more clients who were referred for dizziness. In 2018 Jo moved into a new role working as a vestibular rehabilitation therapist within a concussion clinic where she treated clients with dizziness, balance impairments and mild to moderate head injuries.
Since returning to the UK in 2019 Jo has completed her Bobath training and worked as a Neuro specialist physiotherapist within the NHS. She has now settled in Chichester with her family and is looking forward to using her expertise in vestibular & neuro rehab expertise, as well her passion for pilates to help ChiPhysio’s clients achieve their goals.
Whilst studying and working in London, Jo became an avid squash player, becoming squash captain for the university team, but after living in New Zealand, she has a new love and appreciation for the rural life and being close to nature. Whatever the weather you will find her in the great outdoors, trail running and hiking, or in the water sailing and surfing.
