Hello and welcome to my first blog on my new website.  My name is Lucy Bendle and I have been practising physiotherapy since 1984.  I qualified as a Physiotherapist at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

After doing my junior rotations which included working with the heart transplant team I spent two years travelling and working in the UK and Europe.

I returned to South Africa where I worked in private practice for 12 years. During this period I attended various courses and was the physiotherapist for the South African veteran cycling team. I also ran marathons and ultra marathons and treated many runners.  I also served in the executive committee of the South African Society of Physiotherapy and represented them at the Africa conference and the World Confederation for Physical Therapy conferences.

In 2000 I moved to the UK with my husband and children. Since then I have worked all over the North east in the NHS, Occupational Physiotherapy and Private Practice.  My clinic is based in Blackwell Lane, Darlington and I am make home visits to any patient unable to attend my clinic.

I am passionate about helping people in pain get better and achieve their goals in life. A lot of the time we need to retrain our muscles and joints to move optimally.
