Daniela qualified as a physiotherapist in 2008 in Basel, Switzerland. Following her graduation, she then worked for 2 years in a Swiss rehabilitation clinic, treating in- and outpatients with musculoskeletal, rheumatological, and orthopaedic diagnoses. Daniela was at the same time running fitness and aqua therapy classes and working with students.
In 2012 she moved to the UK, braving the jump into private practice at the same time, and has over the last 9 years working in a variety of clinics, treating patients with musculoskeletal problems and running Pilates and back care classes, attending further courses on rehabilitation, pain, acupuncture, and manual therapy.
Daniela has a background in myofascial trigger point therapy, acupuncture, and clinical pilates which allows her to assess and work with her patients thoroughly, identifying where problems come from. She really believes in her patients understanding what is going on and helping them reach their goals, be that running a marathon, getting through the workday without pain or just kneeling on the floor to play with the grandchildren. And once the physio sessions end she aims for her patients to have strategies to maintain and continue with their progress. Having two young children herself she is developing an interest in working with mums to regain and improve their strength.
While Daniela used to go running, hiking, or traveling in her spare time these days she spends it mostly with her two busy and active children, exploring, adventuring, and learning with and from them - or just watching them with a cup of coffee or two.

Jo qualified as a physiotherapist from the University of Southampton in 1996, and aside from her first 18 months as a rotational physiotherapist, all this time has been spent specialising in the musculoskeletal field. She has worked in the NHS at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital since qualification and continues to do so, combining this with working at Fleet Physiotherapy.
Jo completed a post-graduate diploma in Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2004 and has attended many other post-grad courses over the years, developing a huge breadth of skills and knowledge across the whole body. In recent years though, her interest has become more focussed on the lower body, in particular the knee.
In the NHS she has been instrumental in developing and running a gold-standard pre-and post-op service for patients listed for total knee replacement. She has also run the post-op ACL reconstruction rehabilitation programme for the Basingstoke and North Hampshire region for many years. She has been involved in designing and delivering back fitness and education classes for those recovering from or learning to manage, lower back pain.
Fairly new to private practice having started at Fleet Physiotherapy in April 2021 Jo is so far enjoying the experience and finding it a refreshing change from NHS work, having found a better work/life balance. When not at work, she can be found in the gym or pounding the streets in and around Basingstoke, training for some kind of running event. Alternatively, sipping a cocktail or two at home or out with friends!
