Alahna graduated as a Physiotherapist from Southampton University in 2006 and began her carer in the University Hospital of Southampton. She completed a number of core rotations including musculoskeletal, respiratory, neurological rehabilitation and elderly care.

Following the completion of her core rotation, Alahna went on to specialise in the rehabilitation of individuals suffering a neurological diagnosis including Stroke, MS, Head Injuries and Spinal Injuries to name a few. This included time out in the community, in a gym setting as well as on inpatient rehabilitation wards. In 2013 Alahna became the Therapy Team Leader and Clinical Specialist on a Neurological Rehabilitation Ward which she thoroughly enjoyed and gained valuable experience in the management of long-term neurological conditions and their symptoms including muscle weakness, muscle spasticity and the use of orthotics in function.

Following the birth of her two children, Alahna is excited to join the team here at Medella to focus on providing rehabilitation to people in their own home more locally to her hometown of Ringwood. She maintains some clinical work in her previous NHS team and also enjoys occasional University lecturing to maintain and share her clinical skills.

Alahna has a busy home life looking after her 2 children and black Labrador, and also enjoys playing Netball for a local team. She is passionate about her role as a Physiotherapist and enjoys enabling people to maximise their full potential in life.
