Mary Tebb - Physiotherapsit

Mary provides rehabilitation for amputee patients at the Dorset Orthopaedic Ringwood Clinic. She has over 25 years’ experience and has travelled around the world working as a physiotherapist in New Zealand and the US.

Much of Mary’s role sees her getting out of the clinic and into the wider community to help patients feel more confident in their day-to-day activities. This might include a visit to the beach, a shopping centre or travelling on public transport. With Mary’s invaluable assistance, her patients can adapt to life after an amputation and become as active as possible.

Mary’s favourite part of her job is seeing the progress that patients make over time. She enjoys a sense of pride when she watches an amputee begin to walk again and return to the activities they enjoyed before their amputation.

With such hardworking and determined patients, Mary finds it easy to stay inspired and with every milestone her patients reach, she feels more motivated.

Alongside numerous exciting professional achievements, Mary isn’t afraid of taking on a challenge in her free time. She loves to travel and is kept busy with running, cycling and long distance walking. Earlier this year she walked the South Downs Way and in 2014 she completed the ascent of the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.
