About Marion Main
Marion has now been working in neuromuscular disorders for over 30 years, starting with Victor Dubowitz at Hammersmith Hospital. She has been qualified over 40 years and loves the rehabilitation and MSK (musculoskeletal) aspects of the work.
Marion was instrumental in designing the first SMA scale and has been involved with developing several of the scales now in common use. She has worked on standards of care and been involved in many research projects though now concentrates mostly on clinical work. She is always keen to show that physiotherapy should be manageable and fun, part of everyday life not a burden or boring chore.
Marion is committed to the idea that her team at GOSH are there to look after parents as well and never shies away from chastising those who don’t take care of themselves too…..even doing a Pilates workshop for parents.
She has a Master’s Degree in designing equipment for disability
