Hello, my name is Claire Downs. I set up The Nerve Injury Clinic as a centre of excellence for the assessment and treatment of nerve injuries, offering the very best care and support available, using the most effective techniques.
I qualified as a physiotherapist in 1993, from King's College, London. I then worked at three regional neuroscience units in London, including The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
I have specialised in treating patients with peripheral nerve injuries for 11 years. I previously worked at The Lindens Clinic with Diana Farragher, treating patients with facial nerve and peripheral nerve palsies.
I am very experienced in carrying out surface electromyography and advising upon trophic electrical stimulation. I regularly lecture upon the treatment of nerve injuries to other physiotherapists and patient groups (including BANA). I have presented research upon nerve injuries at professional conferences. I act as an expert witness on medico-legal cases advising solicitors upon peripheral nerve injury clients.
