About

Welcome to my website

My name is Sjoerd Jorritsma and I’m a clinical specialist Physiotherapist and the director of Altrincham Rehabilitation.

In 1997 I completed my studies of physiotherapy at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and I have worked in the NHS since 1998. My experience include Elderly Rehabilitation, Orthopaedics, Palliative Care, Pulmonary & Cardiac Rehabilitation, Complex Care and the majority of my career I have worked in Neurology.

I have  worked in Acute Neurology, Neuro Rehabilitation and spend 1 year working for an NGO as a lecturer teaching and supervising local B.Sc. Physio students at the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed in Bangladesh. (Please click here to find out how you can support this amazing organisation that was founded in 1979 by Miss Valerie Taylor, a British Physiotherapist, who was determined to improve the care for people paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury or disease.)

The last 10 years I have worked for the Stroke Team in Trafford. The majority of those years I have been the Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist, taking a leading role in the development of services for stroke patients in Trafford. I had a great range of responsibilities including supervising other physiotherapists, providing a clinical lead in the rehabilitation of stroke patients, ensuring the physiotherapy for stroke patients included the latest evidence based on national and international standards, guidelines and publications. And my caseload of patients included the more complicated and complex in presentation.

I have also actively been involved in various research projects and I have developed a keen interest in ways of measuring treatment outcomes and demonstrating the effectiveness of my interventions. One of my other passions is teaching others, I have been a guest lecturer and clinical educator for the Physio course at Salford University for many years and over the years have taught many other physiotherapists my very pragmatic, eclectic and ‘no nonsense’ approach to Neuro Rehabilitation.

Altrincham Rehabilitation

Following the successful launch of Altrincham Rehabilitation in 2011 I decided to leave the NHS  and since the start of 2012 have become fully dedicated to provide an excellent and highly specialised domiciliary rehabilitation service.
