Mrs. Helen Preston

Chartered Physiotherapist, Clinical Director, HCPC Registered

Put simply, my job is to help people in pain get back doing what they love. I take time to listen to your story and take time to explain how we can use a host of physical activity and lifestyle strategies to get you going again. I have an awesome job!

I have always been someone who thinks outside the box and passionately believe in treating patients holistically. I particularly enjoy treating more challenging cases that make me use my whole toolbox of physio skills. I find nothing as rewarding as helping people make real life change.

I was literally born into this practice. My father, William, worked from the then clinic next door when we were based in Alexandra Road. My Grandfather, Albert, was also a physio and he worked for Peterborough United for 25 years and in his latter years worked from his home in Audley Gate, Peterborough. From my early years, I observed my father and grandfather working and most of all learnt how important the therapist-patient relationship is in establishing healing. I will always be grateful to them in showing me how important it is to listen.

I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1996 from the University of Birmingham with a First Class Honours Degree (having won the Research Prize for my year) and have worked in a variety of settings (both in and out of the NHS) before taking over the business from William Preston, my father, in 2000.

Dr Singh is passionate about working with science that provides all-natural sources of healing rather than just medicating the symptoms. He is highly sought after in the UK for the optimisation of non-surgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries that include the use of regenerative medicine. That is the use of your own body tissues at the cellular level to promote natural growth, repair and healing to damaged muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and bones. He is part of the leadership team at Pinnacle that is using advanced results-driven treatment plans adopting a multidisciplinary clinician-led team approach, achieving fast recovery rates, improved performance, better movement and pain-free living.
