Joanna Ponting

I love my job. I feel fortunate to have qualified over 20 years ago and still get the enjoyment and satisfaction of helping my clients achieve their goals. This might be to compete a charity walk or run when they have aches and pains and worries that they can't complete! Or, perhaps it might be getting you through the marathon, or it could be as simple as reducing that hip pain so you can walk the dog, or perhaps your back pain is so bad you cant get your socks on. These are all goals!

I knew I wanted to be a physiotherapist from first hand experience of hurting myself.  At the time, I was a GB athlete racing my mountain bike all over the Europe and the UK. I was young, inpatient and had no time scheduled for injury- I needed to be fixed yesterday. Fortunately, I have met some amazing physio mentors along my journey that that still inspire me today. It has meant, that I have first hand experience of what my clients are feeling and what they are missing.

The love of training and exercise physiology took me initially down a sports science route studying a BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy. This was a specific sports injuries, sports psychology and physiology degree and I loved all of it. After the degree I worked with the British cycling under 23 road team and GB downhill teams and set up Back on Track from Andover Leisure Centre. What it didn't do however at that time was allow me to work in the NHS. Therefore, years later, I undertook another degree in physiotherapy gaining a First class honours and top student award. The depth of knowledge this provided was invaluable and has made me into a much more rounded health professional. 

I have enjoyed many sports over the years, volleyball, tennis, golf, running (up to half marathons only!), downhill mountain biking, cross-country riding, enduro, motorbiking, squash, hiking, swimming- I think it is important your physio is active! I have two lovely daughters and a very supportive husband and a spotty Dalmatian dog, I understand what a busy working and family life is and how we may need to adapt our exercises to fit in.

Mr A Fletcher


Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future (NHS 2022).

People that require physiotherapy may have issues with joint stiffness, muscle soreness, difficulty with walking, running or completing their usual tasks at the level they expect. They may have had a joint replacement planned and want exercises and advice to optimise their outcome, or they may have had a joint replacement such as hip, knee or shoulder and want to begin to regain movement and strength and independence under expert physio advice. Private physiotherapist have the opportunity to give you longer assessments and treatments than our NHS colleagues due to less time constraints and pressures. This means that often in a private setting you will benefit from a more hands on approach.
