Shirlene Dill has 40 years of hands-on therapy
After 40 years as a physiotherapist, Shirlene Dill is celebrating the silver anniversary of her business, Hands On Therapy physiotherapy clinic, and remains as passionate about her mission as ever.
She said: “During my time practising as a physiotherapist I have seen many miracles, especially with people who have gotten better, although they were not expected to.
“I say this often but my passion 25 years ago is still the same as it is today: to help everyone that walks through my doors.”
Mrs Dill, a registered physiotherapist, has owned and operated her clinic since it opened on June 1, 1998, in Hamilton.
After many obstacles, and operating out of six locations throughout the first decade unable to find a permanent location, the clinic settled on South Shore in Warwick, where it remains.
Mrs Dill said: “From the day I started my business until today, my goal has always been to provide the best quality service that I could, no matter where I was or who I was treating.
“My clinic specialises in John F Barnes myofascial release, TMJ, and women’s health, but we treat orthopaedic issues, sports injuries, chronic pain, and so much more. We have treated patients of all sorts with all different kinds of needs.”
She is assisted by Jermecca Lightbourne, her primary support staff, who joined the Hands On Therapy team eight years ago bringing just under ten years of managerial experience to the clinic.
Mrs Dill said she is extremely grateful to her family and the Bermuda community for their support ever since her clinic first opened.
