About Karen



Karen BlackI qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1989 from Manchester Royal Infirmary School of Physiotherapy.

I have worked for both the NHS and private sectors for many years in the North West and for the last 20 years in Yorkshire. I have been based on the wards and outpatient departments in NHS and private hospitals and also worked in many GP practices and health centres. I spent a year working in an acute hospital in Calais, Maine, USA, mainly in outpatients, but including some ward work.

In 1997 I became a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists and regularly use acupuncture to compliment my physiotherapy treatments.

From 2003 to 2017 I  worked for Physio Med in Leeds and in 2015 I started my own practice in Ossett, Wakefield.

Since 2008 I have been involved in carrying out telephone consultations for patients referred through their occupational health units at work and referred through their GPs. 

My work currently includes working 4 days a week at my own practice, and the remainder of my week, carrying out telephone consultations from home.
