Becky Isserlis BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy MCSP HCPC
Clinical Lead Neurological Physiotherapist
Becky qualified as a Physiotherapist from the University of Brighton in 1997. She has specialised in neurological physiotherapy since 1999, initially working in Surrey and London and moving to Devon in 2001. She has gained extensive experience working with adults and children with neurological conditions in a variety of settings (including hospital environments, rehabilitation units, specialist schools and within a community setting). She has worked in the community in the Plymouth and South Devon area for nearly 15 years establishing excellent links and knowledge of local services.
Becky has always been passionate about helping people rebuild their lives after illness or injury and adopts a client-centred, holistic approach with an emphasis on promoting self-management. She has undergone training in all areas of neurological physiotherapy including the Bobath Concept, strength training, postural management, FES, hydrotherapy, splinting and kineisiology taping.
In 2005, Becky began working independently as a Specialist Neurological Physiotherapist. Alongside her physio work she worked as a case manager for Westcountry Case management working with clients with brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputees and complex orthopaedic injuries. This work gave her a solid understanding of the medico-legal process including writing clinical reports and medico-legal reports for solicitors and case managers.
Becky established Plymouth Neurophysio Ltd in 2012 and since then has expanded the team in response to the rapidly growing need for this specialist service. She feels incredibly proud to work with such a dynamic and highly skilled team which has gained the service the excellent reputation that it has today.
Becky is committed to lifelong learning and has a special interest in helping individuals with long term conditions reach their full potential through the use of exercise, equipment, orthotics and regaining optimum physical fitness. She has developed a keen interest in the advances in neuro-technology and how using appropriate technology can help to progress and enhance a client's recovery. Becky is an active member of the Association of Physiotherapists interested in Neurology (ACPIN) and leads the CPD training within the Plymouth Neurophysio team.
Outside of work Becky loves spending time with her family and exploring the beautiful local coast and countryside. She enjoys Yoga, Pilates and running and recently completed the Plymouth Half marathon.
