Anna Sprigings

MS specialist practitioner and highly specialist neurological physiotherapist
Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust

Anna trained a Physiotherapist in London, qualifying in 1998. She worked at Central Middlesex, Kingston and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals before moving to work in Lambeth Community Neurorehabilitation Team in 2002.

In 2004 she took up a senior Physiotherapist role in the Community Neurorehabilitation Team in Mid Surrey, which she continued for 15 years.

In 2019, Anna moved within this team to become a Multiple Sclerosis Specialist Practitioner, working alongside an MS Specialist Nurse. This has given her the opportunity to specialise further and to develop the service within the team and wider community.

Anna is keen to keep using her Physio knowledge and skills and is especially interested in ensuring that people with more advanced MS have the contact with professionals that they need. This includes being involved with postural and spasticity management, and ensuring that opportunities to exercise are available to everyone with MS.
