"I think writing this book, which is aimed at a consumer audience, was considered an unusual step for a practicing physio, but it was an important area that I wanted to confront," says Carol. "Everyone who has bad posture knows it, but as a therapist it is often challenging to communicate the benefits of good posture to my patients. Like many physios I was trying to find more innovative ways of getting the message out there."The book, which is described as a "self help fitness guide", guides readers through the stages of achieving good posture. Carol said she is thrilled by the attention the book has received; and winning the Medical Staffing Award, she says, topped it all. "I am a clinical physio, not a researcher, I come from the era of post grad diplomas, and writing a book was a huge step. Winning the Medical Staffing Award was confirmation that I had achieved something great, and it has given me a lot of confidence."Carol has not been short on accolades: as well as soon having her book published in four countries, she has also been signed on as an exclusive seminar speaker in Asia, the Middle East and South America, and she will be joining the next Young Commonwealth and Young Olympic teams as their official physiotherapist.
