Farewell to Lynne!

We are very sad to announce the retirement of our wonderful acupuncturist Lynne Pretty who has been working at Keith James Physiotherapy for over 13 years now.

Lynne and her father Tony Evans have operated for close to 40 years in Westbury Park, but when Lynn’s father Tony retired, Lynne joined the KJP team and has been a valued colleague for over a decade.

In the past year Lynne has become a grandmother and has decided to hang up her needles to spend more time on grandparent duties.

She will be sadly missed by the many thousands of patients she has seen over the years. We wish Lynn well in her retirement and thank her for her friendship over the past 13 years.

Since joining the practice, both Gareth and Sara have clearly demonstrated their commitment to the practice and their qualities as expert clinicians, and this has been recognised in the decision to promote them both to the position of Senior Associate. This acknowledgement is just reward for their high calibre of diagnosis, treatment, loyalty and work ethic.

Well done Sara and Gareth!


Welcome to new physio Camryn Cilliers

Keith James Physiotherapy is delighted to welcome our new Physiotherapist, Camryn Cilliers. She will be providing physiotherapy in the following areas: Musculoskeletal and Sport Injuries, Orthopaedics and Post Surgery Rehabilitation.

Camryn graduated from Stellenbosch University in South Africa. She started running competitively from a very young age, which is where her love for movement and physiotherapy came from.

With a passion for musculoskeletal and sport injuries, she has completed certified courses in dryneedling, Pilates matwork and the LYNO® method, which identifies and removes fascial restrictions. She also loves to identify and treat common running errors.

Before moving to Bristol, she worked in Stellenbosch at a private musculoskeletal physiotherapy practice based at one of the top schools in South Africa, where she gained valuable experience working with elite athletes and sport teams.

Camryn loves being outdoors and active so she spends most of her free time running, cycling or hiking.

If you would like to book an appointment with Camryn, just give us a call on (0117) 330 6820 or book online on our website.

Agnès is moving on to a new role

It is with equal measures of sadness and delight that we will soon be saying ‘goodbye’ to Agnès Canadell as she prepares for a new role. Agnes is expecting a little baby girl in mid-May and will be leaving KJP at the end of February in order to prepare her nest.

Although she has only been with us for a short time, Agnes has become a very popular member of the KJP team and has been a valuable asset to the practice.

We wish her well on her next great journey.

Welcome to Sophie Pearce – our new Women’s Health Physiotherapist

Keith James Physiotherapy is delighted to announce the addition of Women’s Health Physiotherapy to our list of services. The service will be delivered and coordinated by Sophie Pearce, a well-established clinician who passionately believes in the role of physiotherapy in this field.

Sophie qualified in 2016 from Kings College London. It was during her time as a physiotherapy student that she undertook a Women’s’ Health placement, and since then she has always been passionate about specialising in this area and helping women achieve their goals. She has worked in the NHS for nearly 10 years and has spent the last 4 years as a Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist at Southmead Hospital. Prior to this, Sophie worked as a senior musculoskeletal physiotherapist, so is able to bring this extensive expertise into her assessments.

Women’s Heath Physiotherapy is a speciality dedicated to the assessment and treatment of pelvic floor problems. Whether you are pregnant, have recently had a baby or gave birth decades ago, seeing a specialist women’s health physio is something that can be done at all stages of life.

Sophie will be offering a comprehensive pelvic health assessment and treatment service for a range of problems, including:

  • Post-natal pelvic floor rehabilitation – including obstetric anal sphincter injuries.
  • Bladder incontinence
  • Pelvic organ prolapse rehabilitation – especially for those wishing to avoid surgery, or prepare for surgery

Farewell to Zaheer!

We are very sad to say farewell to physiotherapist Zaheer Hussain, who has been with us at KJP for the past 12 months. He initially came in to cover maternity leave for Sara Ayala and became such a popular member of the team with staff and patients alike, he stayed on for an extra few months.

However, growing up in Stockport, with family and commitments up north, Zaheer has made the long journey back up the M6.

A thoroughly good and decent chap, an excellent clinician, and really good company. Zaheer will be missed, and we wish him well for the future.

Get ready to hit the slopes!

If you are counting down the days and weeks to your skiing holiday, you might be thinking about how best to prepare your body to get the most out of your trip. The team at Keith James Physiotherapy can help you to get ready to hit the slopes.

As well as treating the injuries that happen during the ski trip, physiotherapists are really good at preparing you for your holiday. They can help you with niggling back issues, which can get worse on hard-packed snow. And when the snow is deep, catching your skis in the snow can cause knee ligament issues to be exacerbated. Why not make an appointment to see one of our physios and sort out any pain or stiffness before you head off.

Physiotherapists find that preparing for a ski holiday by investing in fitness, strength and endurance training can help you to avoid succumbing to common skiing injuries. And when you return from your skiing trip, don’t forget to book yourself in for a relaxing massage to help with the aches and bruises you picked up along the way.

Call us on (0117) 330 6820 to book an appintment or book online on our website.
