Charlotte Morris MSc MMACP MCSP
I am the owner and clinical lead physiotherapist of PhysioNeeds East Leake. I graduated from Manchester University in 1999 with a BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy. I worked in the NHS in Burnley and Nottingham for 2 years and then I started working for Helen Tomlinson at The Nottingham Sports Injury Clinic for approximately 2 years – (private practice). During this time I qualified as a Pilates Instructor (with Body Control Pilates) and completed my basic mat and intermediate levels. I also completed my Acupuncture training in 2002.
In 2003-2010 I became the clinical lead physiotherapist at RAF Cottesmore. This was a fast jet harrier station that specialised in the treatment of neck and back pain. I gained specialist knowledge in treating aviation injuries. During my time with the RAF I also treated the RAF Men’s Hockey team, as well as looking after individual elite athletes competing in a variety of different sports e.g. swimming, long distance runners, triathletes, rugby, bobsleigh and skeleton bob.
I completed my MSc Manual Therapy from Sheffield Hallam University, and then became a member of the MACP, which is an advanced group of physiotherapists working in musculoskeletal medicine. I then returned back to private practice in 2010 and worked as Head Physiotherapist back at The Nottingham Sports Injury Clinic. I continue to see a mixture of different sports people, but I have recently been working alongside horse riders, (dressage, show jumpers and eventers). This has been looking at treatment of any injuries (human not horses), as well as biomechanical analysis of how they ride and seeing if we can enhance their performance. During the last year I have been mentoring future MACP students as well as being involved in teaching at Nottingham University’s MSc Manual Therapy course.
I am married with 2 children and I enjoy all sports. In the past I have competed in half marathons and triathlons, as well as netball and korfball, (the latter I have played in both the UK as well as Holland). When I get the opportunity I also enjoy skiing and windsurfing, but this is not as often as I would like. My main hobby and passion is horse riding. I have my own horse called Henry and I regularly compete him at both Dressage and Show jumping.
Mrs. Helen Tomlinson MCSP
I am the founder of PhysioNeeds and after graduating from Nottingham University in 1979, with a MCSP Grad Dip in Physiotherapy, I specialised in spinal and sporting injuries.
I have years of experience treating a wide variety of injuries and a wide range of patients including famous people like Stephie Graph, Stuart Pearce, Brian Ferry and Jane Torville. I opened my first private physiotherapy practice in 1982. Torville and Dean then opened the Nottingham Sports Injury Clinic in 1995. I am a family person and love my family with all my heart.
I have triplet boys called Mark, Peter and James and a daughter called Abigail. I love to horse ride in my spare time and take my springador called 'Willow' for a walk everyday. I also enjoy reading, listening to music as well as theatre and travel. ??I would say my specialty is backs and necks as I have graduated in osteopathic manipulative techniques. I believe that hands on physiotherapy is very important and I make sure all my staff are trained and deliver the best quality hands on treatment possible.

Since qualification I have worked in private practice carrying out routine podiatry treatments and offering advice.
I enjoy walking and am a keen participant in most sporting activities (or trying them!). At present, my maintain particular interests are running, cycling and swimming and I have taken part in numerous triathlon events over the last 13 years. More recently I have ventured into off road running and fell runs.
