Emma Wylie, MCSP
Chartered Physiotherapist
HPC registration no: PH.62719

Emma began her career in 2002 at, what is now, the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. It was here that she developed her keen interest in spinal cord injury, working as a junior therapist at Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff and both a junior and senior therapist on the acute trauma and spinal injuries team at the University Hospital of Wales.

From 2006 to 2009 she was the lead physiotherapist for the outpatient department at the National Spinal Injuries Centre, Stoke Mandeville Hospital. She held the responsibility for providing life-long follow-up to every patient rehabilitated by the unit. Her work involved ongoing physiotherapy assessment and advice as well as involvement in several specialist clinics such as orthotics, posture and seating, botulinum toxin therapy for focal spasticity, upper limb reconstruction and functional electrical stimulation. She also had a role in long-term goal planning and the education and training of relatives, carers and health professionals working with spinal cord injured patients in the community.

From 2009 to 2011 she took up a voluntary position abroad working on the Acute Spinal Cord Injury Unit at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa. Here she worked on a dedicated 6-bedded spinal ICU and 20-bedded acute spinal injuries ward helping to deliver an improved physiotherapy service. She also had a strong role in sharing her expertise and developing the service as a whole through ongoing inter-disciplinary working, consultation and regular training activities. She presented at education sessions held on the unit as well as, externally, to the Western Cape Rehabilitation Centre, the South African Society of Hand Therapists and the Southern African Spinal Cord Association international congress held in Johannesburg in 2010.

Emma is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), Physio First (the organisation representing physiotherapists in private practice), the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS), the Multi-disciplinary Association of Spinal Cord Injury Professionals (MASCIP) and the Medico-Legal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MLACP). She upholds the continuing professional development requirements of the Health Professions Council in both the UK and South Africa and is continually updating her skills and attending conferences and workshops in order to keep abreast of all advances in treatment and technology. She is passionate about her work and will always go the extra mile for her patients.
