Sophie Gwilym

Neurological Physiotherapist

Sophie qualified in 1999 with a BSc in Physiotherapy awarded by Brunel University. She developed an early interest in treating people with neurological disorder and specialised in 2001 working as a Senior Neurological Physiotherapist for St Georges Healthcare trust in London. This post included 9 months at the Wolfson Neurorehabilitation Centre where she was the senior physiotherapist for the cognitive team.

Moving to Oxfordshire in 2002 after meeting her (now) husband Stephen, Sophie joined the therapy team at the Oxford Centre for Enablement, a specialist neurological rehabilitation centre. She went on to become the lead physiotherapist for the Continuing Disability Management Service, a multi disciplinary team providing specialist assessment and treatment for people with long term and progressive neurological conditions.

In 2006 Sophie joined the Physical Disability Physiotherapy service (PDPS) for Oxford Health NHS Trust providing highly specialist physiotherapy support for people with complex neurological conditions. She has developed an extensive network within and outside of the NHS having developed close working relationships with many other teams and services.

During her career Sophie has become an expert in the physiotherapy treatment of neurological disorders and has taught as well as practiced extensively. She has a particular interest in the management of spasticity having worked jointly with a neurological consultant in a weekly spasticity clinic and is regularly consulted for treatment advice by colleagues.

She is a long term member, and committee member of ACPIN, a professional group for neurological physiotherapists which aims to promote evidence informed practice within the area of neurology. She regularly attends course and conferences relevant to her area and is committed to her continuing professional development for the benefit of herself and her patients.

In 2014 Sophie set up Oxfordshire Neurophysiotherapy to provide specialist independent physiotherapy for people with neurological conditions.
