Hi! I’m Despoina, a physio from Greece with a special interest in pain who fears heights. This interest brought me to this wonderful country so I could study more about pain with the leading minds in the world and work alongside people of clinical excellence. Over the years I’ve joined specialist groups, led teams, joined the British Pain Society, got actively involved with the PPA (Pain Physiotherapy Association), work as the principal pain physio of my team but most of all I discovered working with pain is not about limiting yourself, it is about opening yourself to all possibilities and life.
