Providing the best care

Excellence, experience and enthusiasm – three qualities delivered by Cathedral Physiotherapy.

Created by Sarah Moore, an Exeter physio with 19 years of experience, 16 of those specifically within the field of musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

Excellence

Excellence is ensured by the post graduate skills obtained including an MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from Cardiff University, membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), the Musculoskeletal Association of Physiotherapists (MACP), the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) and PhysioFIrst, as well as being regulated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). This helps to maintain the practice at the pinnacle of Physiotherapy in Exeter.

Experience

Experience is guaranteed following 18 years working in the NHS as a qualified Physiotherapist. The last 12 in which she worked as clinical lead physiotherapist at the Royal Devon and Exeter (NHS) trust, prior to running Cathedral Physiotherapy. She has a wealth of experience having worked in, among other areas, Outpatients, Occupational Health, Accident and Emergency, Trauma, Orthopaedics, Pain clinic, Rheumatology, Hydrotherapy, Haemophilia, and post Cancer rehabilitation, and specialises in complex conditions which may have previously failed conservative treatment.

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm motivates Sarah, who is absolutely passionate about providing the best possible care for your condition. She strongly believes that people should not allow their difficulties (pain, weakness, loss of function, previous diagnoses) to define them as individuals, and works with her clients in a friendly and positive way, to help them achieve their functional potential and goals.

About Sarah Moore

BSc (Hons)

After obtaining her BSc (Hons) from the University of Brighton in 1997, she worked at UBH in Bristol between 1997 - 2004, which included taking a year to explore the world and work as a physio within HIH Insurance in New Zealand. She also worked as a medic for Trekforce in the jungles of Borneo for two months.

Having attended many postgraduate courses, including obtaining her certificate in Acupuncture, she undertook a specialist qualification in neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy –a 2 year diploma and post graduate examinations resulting in her obtaining membership of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists. During this time she moved to Exeter to take up a team lead role at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust, which quickly progressed to a Clinical Lead Role covering MSK Outpatients, Women’s Health (including Obstetrics), Rheumatology, Hydrotherapy and Cardiac Rehab and Respiratory outpatients, as well as working as the specialist physiotherapist for Haemophilia patients.

Keen to continue developing, Sarah completed her MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy from Cardiff University in 2012. Latterly, Sarah has also had a role as Principle Investigator, Exeter Site, in the PROVE trial run by Oxford University, the National Osteoporosis Society, National Institute for Health Research and Oxford Nuffield NHS Trust. This is the largest trial in the UK investigating Physiotherapy rehabilitation for the treatment of Osteoporosis.

Having completed multiple service reviews over the years, Sarah has implemented this knowledge to ensure she runs an efficient and effective business. She has always enjoyed her regular teaching and 1:1 mentoring, and is keen to continue this within her private practice, both with other physio’s and doctors, as well as health promotion within local businesses. Initiatives she has been involved with include helping set up and auditing a dedicated occupational physiotherapy service at UBH in Bristol, and Physio Direct – a physiotherapy advice line.

Specialising in complex conditions, but equally happy to treat any musculoskeletal problem, Sarah has a passion to provide the best possible care for your condition. She is determined to help clients not to be defined by their diagnoses, and to help them optimise their musculoskeletal health, function and well being.
