My name is Jenny. I’m a Zimbabwean-born Australian currently travelling around the world, volunteering and working within my profession, physiotherapy.

I graduated in Perth in 2008, worked in the ‘Aussie Outback’ for 2 years and made my way back to Zimbabwe at the beginning of this year (2011) to volunteer in an HIV clinic in Harare. I spent 5 months at Newlands Clinic working with adults with HIV related neurological conditions and HIV positive children with chronic respiratory disorders.

The Rugby Under 19 Caribbean Championships were held in Grand Cayman from July 9th to 16th 2011. Cayman Physiotherapy Ltd. provided treatment for many players in the clinic as well as pitch side coverage for matches. We also provided pre match care and taping of various injuries as well as post match assessment and first aid.  

Cayman Islands made the most of home advantage to retain their Caribbean Under 19 Championship crown with a 18-8 victory over Mexico in the final on Saturday. 

At Cayman Physiotherapy Ltd. the importance of in-servicetraining is paramount. We have a monthly in-service meetingwhich vary from case studies to presentations from staffsharing information from physiotherapy courses attended.Our visiting specialist Dr. Caroline Quartly also presents toour staff on various rehab-related topics each time she visits.

The girls from Cayman Physiotherapy got a chance to practice their taping skills recently when they participated in a Kinesio Tex Taping Course.The three day seminar presented by Rob Brandon a certified kinesio taping instructor from New York was held at the Cayman Islands Health Services Authority and showcased the many varied uses of this versatile therapy adjunct.
