Bio continued

In 2008, she furthered her education by obtaining a Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy from NSA “Vasil Levski” in Sofia, Bulgaria. Her specialisation in neurology, particularly focusing on post-lower back microdiscectomy patients, equipped her with advanced knowledge and skills to manage complex neurological conditions. Her master’s dissertation, which involved detailed research and practical application, laid the groundwork for her future career in both public and private healthcare sectors.

Nergis’s professional journey began while she was preparing her master’s dissertation, initially working as a massage therapist. This role provided her with invaluable experience in patient interaction and manual therapy techniques. Shortly thereafter, she transitioned to roles as a physiotherapist in various healthcare settings, gaining extensive experience across multiple departments, including orthopaedics, trauma, amputee care, cardiovascular rehabilitation, and neurology.

Her career took a significant step forward in 2018 when she moved to the UK to provide physiotherapy services. Nergis has since been treating patients referred by numerous health insurers and self-payers.
