Julie Porteous currently works and lives in the Highland town of Boat of Garten from where she runs Highland Physiotherapy. She enjoys an active lifestyle of skiing, mountain biking, open water swimming, paddle boarding and hill walking.
From this fantastic base she is able to travel easily to Dalfaber Golf and Country Club in Aviemore where flexible clinic appointments are available.
Julie is registered with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists, Physio First and The Health and Care Professions Council.
Strength & Conditioning
Using a combination of body weight and free weight based exercises can get you strong and balanced enough to prevent future injury.
Julie regularly uses gym balls, thera-bands and wobble cushions which can offer balance re-education. Plus they are a fun and enjoyable way to recover from injury.
As much as Physiotherapy is an exercise based profession, hands on treatment is often necessary to assist in pain management and to build confidence with the injured tissues.
Water therapy can be very effective for early non-weight bearing rehabilitation.
Face to face and virtual physiotherapy
In keeping with Scottish government and my professional bodies guidance, Highland Physiotherapy is now able to offer face to face appointments.
Paralympic Games, Tokyo 2020
Julie was lucky enough to be able to attend the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games in order to classify cycling athletes at both the Izu velodrome (track events) and the Fuji speed way (road events).
