Aimie Peek: Physiotherapist – Currently on Maternity Leave
Aimie qualified as a physiotherapist from the University of West of England in 2006, where she specialised early in musculsokeletal physiotherapy. She completed her Masters in Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2013 from the University of Birmingham, gaining admission to the highly accredited Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
She has worked for the last 6 years as an advanced practice physiotherapist in the UK with a specialist interest in the neck, headaches the upper limb and spine. She worked alongside internationally renowned spinal surgeons, and developed a new model of healthcare where physiotherapists work in an extended role providing steroid injections and prescribing medications in general practice – watch this space Australia!
Prior to moving to Australia in September 2017 Aimie also lectured on the Masters program at the University of Birmingham on the cervical spine, whiplash, sacroiliac joint, and headaches. She has published papers in the field of back pain, shoulder pain and nerve injuries and was awarded scholarships from the University of Sydney and the Centre of Research Excellence to complete her Ph.D. investigating neurochemicals in headache, back pain, and whiplash.
Fun fact: Aimie has a completely irrational fear of fish, however, has managed to use self-hypnosis to overcome this to complete her diving training up to advanced open water, and complete two shark dives in Fiji.
