Vault Physiotherapy is owned by specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist Rochelle Dunster. Rochelle has worked in the NHS and private practice since 2013 and has vast experience in treating a range of injuries using physiological, anatomical and biomechanical principles. She has worked as a senior physiotherapist specialising in major trauma and in 2019 qualified as an animal physiotherapist working in Southampton and Hampshire.
Rochelle upgraded to a Category A ACPAT physiotherapist after completing a further 2 years at University, at Masters level. She can draw on her human physiotherapy experience to transfer her knowledge to our beloved animals. Her knowledge and choice of treatments are based on clinical research, therefore you and your animal will receive the highest quality of physiotherapy.
Personally Rochelle found her passion for animals after growing up with horses and dogs in the Cornish countryside. Her family owned many horses over the years but currently the only animal she owns is a small, but very vocal Jack Russel. She currently supports local GP’s by working as a senior physiotherapist in surgeries across Southampton 2 days a week.
