Meet Morag Lunn - our new Pratcice Manager! Morag is a musculoskeletal physiotherapist first and foremost. Another area of interest is rehabilitation, both in a functional and a sporting capacity. School age children with musculoskeletal problems are also welcome to attend for physiotherapy assessment and treatment. Morag also specialises in the treatment of vestibular disorders and is happy to see clients with dizziness and/or balance issues.
Career to date
Morag notes "My first love was sport and this led to completing a Sports Science degree in 1990. After a period of travel and work, I decided on a career change, returned to university and qualified in 1999 with an MSc in Rehabilitation Science from Glasgow Caledonian University.
After a good grounding in the NHS, I moved to Murrayfield Hospital in order to specialise in treating musculoskeletal disorders. Whilst there, I led the Sports Medicine Clinic working alongside a Sports Physician and for 8 years. I became a Knee Specialist working closely with the Orthopaedic Consultants in 2008 and was responsible for the implementation of clinics for the management of acute knee pain and the osteoarthritic knee. Alongside my main physiotherapy role, I have worked with Scottish and GB Hockey and Premiership rugby clubs.
After a short period in the NHS and as a self-employed physiotherapist, I accepted the role as Practice Manager/Lead Clinician at the Edinburgh Physiotherapy Centre". Sounds a varied and exciting career Morag!
Why are you a Physiotherapist/Therapist?
Simple – I just want to help people get better.
Plus endless physiotherapy sessions after my own injuries helped me appreciate how powerful an influence we have on people’s lives.
