The Team At Embrace Physio

Embrace Physio aims to make a difference in people’s lives. It is saddening to think that so many women put up with problems that specialist treatment could improve or resolve. With today’s busy, chaotic lifestyles, you can find your own health getting pushed further down the pecking order and list of priorities. It’s not at all surprising that we often don’t find the time or energy to address personal and sensitive issues, ones which we continue to hope might just go away!

Often women just don’t know what’s available to them, or where to turn for help. Embrace Physio wants to shed light on Women’s Health problems, to turn the tide on these ‘taboo’ subjects, and enable women to talk openly, honestly and seriously about the problems affecting them. Our goal is to help, educate and empower women to do something positive to help themselves. You will be treated with complete dignity and respect, and all information is taken with the strictest confidence and discretion. It is a very personal service, one where gaining your trust is key, and sharing the journey is a privilege.

No woman should suffer in silence, or go through problems alone. Seeking help or treatment can be difficult when issues are sensitive, potentially embarrassing and sometimes life-changing. Embrace Physio wants to challenge you to take that step, to seek advice and help. We don’t want you to ‘put up with’ or live with ongoing concerns that get in the way of you living your life to its full potential! I bring a lot of empathy and understanding, as I also know what it’s like to be a woman and experience these struggles. If it matters to you then it matters to me.

About Emily

My name is Emily Sturt and I am a specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist based in Derby, with over 14 years of clinical experience.

I graduated in 2001 from the University of Birmingham with a BSc (hons) degree in Physiotherapy and I am Chartered and State Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). I am also a member of the Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy Group (POGP).

My extensive NHS experience has covered all aspects of Physiotherapy. In recent years I have worked within the Obstetric and Gynaecological team at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. Here I have been responsible for delivering exceptional care quality, developing the service throughout the trust, as well as lecturing on the Undergraduate Women’s Health Module at the University of Nottingham.  I also currently work alongside a Consultant Gynaecologist at the Nottingham Hospital NHS Treatment Centre, as their Lead Specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist.

I am a busy working Mum with two small children and on returning from Maternity Leave for the second time, I felt compelled to set up Embrace Physio and reach out to the Women of Derbyshire and beyond. I have a real passion for Women’s Health, and it is my aim to encourage, support and motivate you to make positive changes to your health, wellbeing and quality of life.

About Jenny

Improving the quality of life and self-management of pelvic health problems is of paramount importance to me.

I know the impact pelvic health problems can have on your overall well being. So there’s no greater satisfaction when I’m able to share my knowledge and experiences to help you take back control.

With a wealth of experience in this specialist field, I enjoy working and progressing the Women’s and Men’s Health service at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Since graduating from the University of Keele (2003) with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy, I attained a Post Graduate Certificate in ‘Continence for Physiotherapists’ from the University of Bradford (2011).

I am a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP), The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the Pelvic Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP) special interest group.

When not at work, I am usually to be found constructing something out of Lego or playing superheroes with my two young children!
