Ruth Osborne graduated from the University of Brighton in 2001. After 18 months working at Bedford General Hospital, she moved to Cornwall and started a rotational post at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.


She quickly realized that stroke and neurological rehabilitation was becoming her passion, having worked on the Stroke Unit at RCHT and the inpatient and outpatient departments at Marie Therese House in Hayle. She spent many years working on the stroke and neurological wards of RCHT and began several years of post graduate study in the field of neurological rehabilitation and management of long term conditions.  

In 2010 Ruth promoted to Clinical Specialist in Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation, covering mid Cornwall, and later the West of Cornwall. In this post she helped to develop specialist physiotherapy services locally, and continued to develop many areas of special interest such as spasticity management, upper limb rehabilitation, vestibular rehabilitation, cervical dystonia management, ataxia, and incomplete spinal cord injury rehabilitation, amongst others. 

Ruth is committed to continued professional development and has a real passion for developing and sharing best practice. She has been involved in a number of research projects, both nationally and in the South West.


As someone who enjoys continual personal growth in her own life, she recognizes the need to facilitate such opportunities for people living with neurological conditions. Ruth will give you an honest evaluation based on her years of experience working with some of the most complex clinical presentations. She will listen carefully to your priorities and goals and help to integrate these into a highly effective treatment plan.
