Laura graduated from Kings College London with a First Class Honours degree in Physiotherapy in 2004 and began working in a large London NHS teaching Hospital. In 2008 she moved into the private sector. Over the course of her career she has worked closely with a number of nationally recognised consultant orthopaedic surgeons and specialist women’s health physiotherapists. As well as her hospital work, she worked within the English Football League structure at varying levels for 9 years, including two years with Crystal Palace FC in London. From 2010 to 2017 Laura was working as Head of Women's Health Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates at a large polyclinic in Dubai. On returning to the UK she set up LB Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates.

Laura has post-graduate training in acupuncture including auricular acupuncture and acupuncture for the management of musculoskeletal pain and injury.

Having trained with the Australian Physiotherapy & Pilates Institute from 2006 she has gained expertise in the clinical application of Pilates, providing individualised, symptom specific patient programmes. In all her work places she has set up clinical pilates classes for ante-natal and post-natal care as well as generalised classes. Laura believes that clinical pilates can benefit every patient resulting in a stronger core and better posture thus helping in injury prevention.

In 2009 Laura completed the internationally recognised McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy training programme, becoming a certified practitioner. She has incorporated her skills and knowledge of the McKenzie principles into the management of spinal patients achieving excellent results.

Laura has a special interest in Women's Health Physiotherapy. She is clinically trained to provide specialised assessment, effective advice and treatment to a population that is sometimes neglected. Her areas of expertise are pelvic floor rehabilitation in the management of incontinence and the treatment of pelvic girdle dysfunction in the pregnant population.

Since April 2019 Laura has been a Mummy MOT® practitioner offering a thorough assessment to the post-natal population.
