Fiona is Principal Physiotherapist at Physio2go® in St Albans having joined in 2006. She trained at Addenbrookes School of Physiotherapy, Cambridge qualifying in 1981. She started work at the North Middlesex Hospital and quickly decided that out patients was the area that she wished to specialise in, becoming a senior 1 in outpatients and hydrotherapy.(Link to exercise in water article)
After a short break to have a family Fiona then worked at the Bupa Hospital Harpenden (now Spire Harpenden) for 6 years followed by 15 years in a private practice in Old Welwyn.
During the last 28 years she has specialised in working with patients presenting with acute or chronic musculoskeletal conditions, joint surgery and trauma.
Fiona incorporates acupuncture as a modality for pain relief in many of her treatment regimes.(Link to Acupuncture article)
“I believe that following a thorough assessment a physiotherapist should work together with his/her patients, setting realistic targets and time lines. This helps to structure the patient rehabilitation and facilitates recovery.”
Fiona is a member of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists and the CSP Electrotherapy and Diagnostic Ultrasound Professional Network. She has completed the Cyriax course in orthopaedic medicine and regularly participates in post graduate courses particularly relating to acupuncture to continue her professional development.
What our patients say about Fiona Jacobsen MCSP Physiotherapist
Joan MitchellSt Albans
"Fiona, Thank you for all you have done. When I first came to you I was very depressed about my shoulder and even more so after I had seen my Consultant. With all your expertise and exercises I now feel I can play golf again. You certainly have lifted my spirits, Joan."
