Laura Rathbone (MSc, PT)

I am fascinated and dedicated to sharing the science and philosophy of pain with the aim of supporting more clinicians to work with an evidence-based whole-person approach.

I am a qualified Physiotherapist, although now, I work more wholistically as a therapist.  I completed my MSc in Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Kings’ College, London where I explored the philosophy and complexity of pain more deeply.

I now support people with pain and the clinicians working with pain from all over the world, teaching courses on integrated approaches to MSK therapy and guest lecturing at universities in the UK and the Netherlands.

I qualified as a Journalist before studying Physiotherapy and weave together skills and knowledge from both professions, alongside my further training in psychological approaches, to hold a wide practice for supporting with pain.

I am deeply interested in the role of literature, art, language, and communication in healthcare. I bring this interest and these skills to my podcast ‘Philosophers Chatting with Clinicians’ (available on spotify), my teaching and community of clinicians called The Hive, and I founded the international reading community ‘Pain Geeks’ which I now run with my business partner Christine Petrides.
