About Izzy Robertson:

Izzy qualified as a physiotherapist in 1989 and worked in the NHS until 2006,
specialising in the treatment of musculo-skeletal conditions and chronic pain;
this included developing a programme to help low back pain sufferers return
safely and confidently to activity and work, and working with a consultant and
a specialist nurse to run a chronic pain management programme to help those
with long term painful conditions.

When she moved to Dorset in 2006, she left the NHS and now works as a
complementary therapist, taking a holistic approach to health and well being
and retaining her interest in pain management.
