Angela Troth, HCPC, MACPIN
I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989, graduating from the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital School of Physiotherapy. I worked in rotational posts for 3 years, gaining experience in all areas of physiotherapy before specialising in the treatment of individuals with neurological conditions, which I have been doing now for over 30 years. During this time, I have worked in the NHS in a variety of locations; acute medical wards, rehabilitation wards, day hospitals, neuro out-patient clinics, a regional specialist orthotics clinic, community and early supported discharge teams.
This has given me a wealth of experience in the treatment of a wide range of neurological conditions at all stages of rehabilitation.
I completed a Masters (MSc) in Physiotherapy in 2006, completing modules and a dissertation in neurological rehabilitation. I am a Bobath Trained therapist, and have completed Parkinson’s `Disease Warrior' and Neuro fit training, which promote the role of exercise and movement to maximise patients’ abilities and independence as well as improve their general health.
I endeavour to keep my practice up to date and evidence based and have regularly attended training courses throughout my career. I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists with an Interest in Neurology (ACPIN). I am passionate about giving patients the confidence to exercise, to be more active and achieve their goals.
In my spare time I like to keep active, running and competing in canicross races with my dog and attending circuit training classes. I am also a keen gardener and cook.
