Following graduation Victoria completed all major rotations within the NHS hospital system including intensive care, musculoskeletal outpatients and orthopaedics, surgical and medical wards. This extensive initial training consolidated Victoria’s knowledge and gave her a good basis upon which to build her skills within the musculoskeletal field.

During this time she worked extensively with sports teams. On her return to the UK Victoria was a senior physiotherapist in the outpatient department of a busy NHS Hospital in Hertfordshire and she continued her education by completing an MSc in sports injuries and physiotherapy.
