About

  • Biography icon plus

    Helen Cowgill is a highly specialised musculoskeletal Physiotherapist with over 15 years experience. Helen graduated from St George's Medical School with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy and has completed extensive post graduate training, particularly in the management of TMJ dysfunction. TMJ disorders are not taught as part of undergraduate Physiotherapy education, therefore this area is highly specialised. Helen is highly regarded in the assessment, treatment and management of TMJ dysfunction both within the NHS and in Private Practices.

    Helen has vast experience in the treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions and her past experience includes working within the NHS, Private sector, Premiership Football Club, Superleague Netball team, International Athletics and being a member of the Physiotherapy team to the Olympic Equestrian Teams at the London Olympics.

    Temporomandibular disorders are very common, however, TMJ and it's associated disorders at present are not taught in Physiotherapy undergraduate education and it is considered a specialism which very few Physiotherapists are qualified and capable of managing. Helen has vast experience in the treatment and management of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders and is highly regarded both within the NHS and in Private Practices.
    Helen currently works within the NHS at King's College Hospital Foundation Trust as a Clinical Lead Physiotherapist and was fundamental in setting up a pioneering TMJ Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) Clinic. The data from this TMJ MDT clinic highlighted the importance of dedicated and specialist Physiotherapy management with Physiotherapy receiving the most referrals from clinic. The outcomes from this MDT clinic are considered to be significant and as such, Helen presented the data at the national Physiotherapy UK conference.

    Helen is passionate about TMJ treatment and education and is regularly invited to deliver post graduate University lectures regarding TMD, in particular Physiotherapy input and management. Helen currently lectures on post graduate TMJ courses and has assisted in the creation of the first MDT TMJ Masters Module.
