Karen Shrimpton

The owner and manager of the practice.
Karen trained at Kings College Hospital in London. After London Karen went west and spent time in Taunton and Yeovil developing her musculoskeletal skills. In the eighties she was far afield in New Zealand and loved not only the working environment but the outdoor life, particularly the sailing.
She returned to the UK and St Richards Hospital, Chichester before setting up in her own private practice. This has now expanded and has a great team of clinicians. Karen specialises in back rehabilitation programmes.
