Christina Peak Specialist Children's Physiotherapist

Christina Peak - Specialist Children's Physiotherapist

Christina qualified as a physiotherapist back in 2005 and began her career at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton before specialising in paediatrics in 2007.

She has benefitted from a wide variety of experience in both the hospital and community settings and as a result she has a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of paediatrics.

Christina has a particular passion for developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) / dyspraxia and has run many DCD clinics in different settings in both the NHS and independent clinics.

Whilst the NHS physiotherapy services are fantastic, Christina understands that sometimes families would like to see a physiotherapist more quickly or more often than what the NHS can provide.  Everybody is different.  She loves the fact that by providing a service she can offer excellent communication and control to families over their children’s care.

Healthcare can be a minefield of jargon, which can be very intimidating for some.  A line that most of Christina's patients have heard from her is ‘we like to say long Latin words to make ourselves sound clever!’ and so she likes to ensure that she speaks in as plain English as possible (though she does like to show off occasionally with a few Latin words).
