Profile

Kim Allan – Principal Therapist

I have been working in physiotherapy for 36 years, in multiple areas of practice. This allows me to apply a broad spectrum of knowledge to each individual’s needs

MANUAL THERAPY

I am a qualified McKenzie Therapist, using manual therapy, simple exercises, and education to treat pain, injuries, weakness, or disability. McKenzie treatment has been shown by international studies to be effective in the treatment of pain via Telehealth.


LYMPHOEDEMA

I have completed advanced training in Lymphoedema management, enabling me to treat Lymphoedema and Lipoedema in any location of the body. I am specifically trained to treat wounds associated with Oedema such as Leaky “Red” Legs (Lymphorrhea), and ulcers.


When I recommend garments for the management of lymphoedema I liaise with you to find the best fit and price. The garments I regularly prescribe include Medi, Jobst, Haddenham, Thusaine, Sigvaris, Cosmac, Solaris, Juzo and Bioflect. These provide all types of compression.

Because of the broad scope of my training and experience, I am confident in managing complex issues for people with multiple needs or conditions, including chronic pain. When treating clients with chronic pain, I use the NOI Approach to reduce fear of movement and pain. www.noigroup.com/en/About

I participate in ongoing training to maintain each of these qualifications.


MY PRACTICE

I offer in home appointments and have joined the MGS Physiotherapy team (
