My Name Is Ammit Mistry and I believe that every individual should be able to do the things they enjoy without the worry of an injury reoccurring.
From a young age I have had a great interest into the functions and the coping mechanisms of the human body after injury, which steered me towards my career path of becoming a Physiotherapist.
In 2008 I completed a foundation degree in Health-Related Exercise and Fitness at Leeds Metropolitan University then went on to graduate as a Physiotherapist in 2011 at Manchester Metropolitan University. During my time at university, I experienced learning opportunities based in multiple professional settings such as hospitals, schools, and community health services. I was also provided with an unforgettable opportunity to work alongside the lead physiotherapist at Leeds United Football Club, this allowed me to gain a better understanding on advanced rehabilitation and aiding individuals back to high level sport.
My first professional job at Bradford Teaching Hospitals enabled me to gain a wealth of knowledge and experience treating patients with Musculoskeletal, Respiratory and Neurological health problems. Moving on I began a journey working for several private physiotherapy practices acquiring most of my experience treating sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, orthopaedic conditions, and spinal injuries.
I am currently working as a First Contact Physiotherapist (FCP) based in GP surgeries in the south of Leeds. The FCP service allows patients contacting their GP surgeries with musculoskeletal pain to be seen quickly by a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist.
Working alongside the wider multi-disciplinary team such as Doctors, nurses, pharmacist, and other advanced practitioners has allowed me to develop my medical knowledge and enabled me to gain a better understanding of how some medical conditions can present as musculoskeletal symptoms. This role has given me the opportunity to assess, diagnose and treat patients for their symptoms. If a diagnosis is unclear, I have been able to refer patients for further investigations such as scans, blood test or referred onwards to specialist teams within the surgery or secondary care.
In clinic I like to spend time with my patients to find the root cause of their problem, so I can develop a tailored treatment plan for each individual and set goals at each stage to ensure they get the result they want. I have a real interest in using ‘hands on’ therapy such as trigger point release, soft tissue mobilisations and joint mobilisations when treating patients. I have completed courses in Acupuncture, tai chi and I am a qualified Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessor.
Outside work I enjoy spending time with family and friends with a meal or a few drinks. I enjoy stand-up comedy, listening to music and adore a good cup of coffee.

What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi originated in ancient China and has roots in the healing, meditation and martial traditions. It is a moderately aerobic form of exercise which combines relaxed, flowing, circular movements with a calm, alert mental state. The Ying and yang symbol shows how the opposite and complementary forces continually interact to create a balance which is Tai Chi.
The essential principles include mind integrated with the body; control of movements, breathing, generating internal energy and mindfulness. The ultimate purpose of tai chi is to cultivate the qi of life energy within us to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body. Tai Chi is aesthetically pleasing, easy and enjoyable to practice. It can be a meditation and an integral exercise for all parts of the body and the mind. It brings tranquillity and helps you think more clearly.
