NICKY HODGKINSON BSc (Hons) MCSP SRP
Chartered Physiotherapist and Women’s Health Physiotherapist
I qualified as a physiotherapist (BSc Hons) from the University of the West of England in 1995 and initially worked in London teaching hospitals for over 10 years before moving to work in the NHS and private sectors in Hampshire. I specialise in the treatment of spinal problems and women’s health. I also have a broad knowledge covering the full spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders from sporting injuries to arthritic conditions and also post-operative rehabilitation. I work in a specialist role alongside a number of local consultant orthopaedic surgeons and pain consultants and I am familiar with their pre-operative and post-operative procedures. I have a passion for helping women who have developed problems as a result of pregnancy or post natal. My specialist skills in women’s health mean I am able to treat ante and post natal women for a variety of complaints including back pain, pelvic pain, coccyx pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. I teach both ante natal and postnatal classes and provide one-to-one active birthing sessions to prepare women and their partners for labour. I also treat women suffering with urinary and bowel incontinence, prolapses, vaginismus and pelvic pain which may be a new or longstanding problem. I enjoy assessing and treating patients who have challenging and complex symptoms and those who have sometimes tried other therapies which have not been successful. I live in Winchester with my husband and 3 young children and enjoy an active family life.
