Dr Jenni Naisby

Assistant Professor

Department: Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation

I am a physiotherapist and Lecturer, with an interest in pain management. My interest was developed through working clinically and completing a PhD in this area. I have experience of working as a physiotherapist in outpatient musculoskeletal settings within the NHS and private practice. I currently teach on the BSc (Hons) and MSc Pre Registration Physiotherapy programmes and supervise undergraduate, MSc, Professional Doctorate and PhD projects.
