Physiotherapy

Whether it’s a work related/postural problem, a sports injury or just a painful joint or limb, a member of our experienced team will take the time to work with you.

Our physios all have a minimum of 5 years practical experience but most have many more than that (and a few so many they just don’t want to say!) Many of our staff have completed their Masters.

We’re physios first who happen to run a business too. It shapes everything we do. We genuinely like people and we hope people like us.

We’ve got some truly special people in our teams who’ve done some pretty amazing things who can completely empathise with you.

Physio for sports injuries

Whether you are a serious sports-person or an enthusiastic amateur, no one likes to be away from their sport through injury. Our experienced physios can help to relieve your pain, restore your mobility and get you back to your sport quickly and safely.

Sports Injuries

Occupational physiotherapy

Occupational Physiotherapy has been shown to have demonstrable effects in reducing both the incidence and overall number of days lost to ill health and accidents in the workplace.

We can work with your staff to resolve pain quickly while teaching them skills to help prevent a recurrence of symptoms. Common workplace complaints include back pain, stiff or painful necks, sore shoulders and upper backs, sprains, joint pain and muscle strains and recurring headaches.

Full Body MOT
(including Sports Movement Assessment)

Have you ever wondered why you are prone to the same injury when training, or that your posture affects your ability to run efficiently, or reach for that position to return that serve?

We can offer you a full movement screen that analyses the way you move highlighting areas of potential weakness and instability and shows where you need to improve.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture can be used either using TCM (traditional chinese medicine)  or with a western ethos of dry needling. It is a simple and safe way to ease pain. Fine, single use, sterile needles are inserted into the skin at precise points depending on your specific problem.

This process stimulates your body’s pain relieving hormones and eases your pain. Many patients find this relaxing which in turn helps your recovery.

We also offer extended assessment appointments for more complex problems, or multiple areas of the body. This will take 45 minutes and costs £49. If you have been seen elsewhere before and not been satisfied with your treatment then an extended appointment time allows us to fully investigate your problem. Please discuss this with us and ask for details. A future review may be necessary depending on the problem to advance the rehabilitation, this is normally done in a 30 minute session. Full details can be found on our fees page
