At Impact you will only find experienced and dynamic physios. Most of us have more than 10 years experience working with individuals, teams and companies (some of us much longer!)
Most of our staff have post graduate qualifications, continuing to learn to offer you evidence based interventions, we also work with elite athletes and have worked in the hospital environment and the private sector for many years combining our experience to offer you the best care.
We view our work with you as a partnership. We consider you to be the most important member of the team and we’ll treat you as such. Thank you for coming to us to work with us - we will do our best to facilitate your recovery. There is generally no magic button to press - but working together to prioritise the most effective way should get the best result in the shortest time.
We’ll give you all the knowledge and support you require to properly manage your condition - so you don’t have to keep coming back.
We know that prevention is better than cure; it just makes good, plain, old-fashioned sense. That's why we're here to support your health. We offer classes to help with your fitness, strength and flexibility, and can work on a 1:1 basis to promote well being.
We will work with you to get to the root cause of your problem - beyond the symptoms; because as friendly as we are, we don’t want you to spend your all your time coming for treatment. We promise if you are not showing signs of improving within 3 sessions then we won't just keep on treating you. Even with a long standing problem you should feel confident that you are working on the issues that may be contributing to the problem. However if you agree if indicated we will refer you on for further investigation, liaising with your GP and consultant.
After weeks of an increasingly painful and debilitating left knee, I was at the stage of convincing myself that a total knee replacement was the only solution! An assessment at Impact Physio prescribed a very well explained and visually clear exercise regime, which I followed religiously every day. Six weeks later I am walking pain free and 'normally'. Impact Physio provided the professional expertise and encouragement I needed. Thank you.
Rachel Royer and Impact Physio have been an excellent resource for our DIS athletes. Totally reliable, fast to respond and act, whilst showing total empathy with the issues of high achieving, highly focussed athletes in a wide range of performance sports. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rachel and her team to any high performance sporting environment.
I have suffered with a niggling and sometimes exceptionally painful lower back and neck for years but just thought it was 'one of those things' I had to endure. On speaking with Rachel Royer I decided to request an appointment. After just 2 sessions and armed with simple exercises it has made a world of difference already! Why didn't I go earlier? My lower back is stronger with a less pronounced curve and I can use my neck without suffering excruciating stabbing pains. Amazing! At IP they have excellent expertise, professionalism and courtesy, plus their plain speaking makes it clear instantly what the issue is and how to address it - ideal. I have also had Craniosacral sessions with Chris and I come away feeling peaceful, empowered, with improved movement and increased self-esteem. My headaches have gone and I am positive it is having a beneficial effect on my digestion. I can't recommend the team enough. Many thanks all. Viv Smith
I really can't thank you enough and congratulate you on such a wonderful practice.
... all is really good at the moment exercises working very well. May I add what a brilliant service you have provided I will be returning when I have a problem
I've had lost of massages over the years - Sara (Bostock) is by far the best! I would highly recommend her. After working on my calves I was able to walk 4 miles completely pain free - it normally hurts after just 3/4 minutes.
I found the Fit Back & Bumps sessions really helpful in pregnancy to improve the strength of my core muscles. The exercises were easy to follow – so easy to remember and repeat at home! Great – just what I was hoping for! The handouts are helpful to jog my memory with the exercises.
I have really enjoyed the fit back and bumps classes. The classes have helped me to understand the changes happening to my body during pregnancy. It has also helped me to be disciplined about keeping fit during my pregnancy. The class tutor was really enthusiastic & friendly and created a good atmosphere in class. I really liked the exercise cards to take away.
My fit back & bumps course was fab! It gave me so much more than I expected. The course content was very thorough & the instructor’s knowledge of both advice on exercise & pregnancy concerns was excellent. I would recommend to all mums to be whatever your fitness background.
Very helpful exercise plan which extended range of movement and also eased the pain. Gave me exercises to carry on and strengthen shoulder after treatment ended. Very satisfied with treatment and advice.
Very pleased with my treatment, I came same seven years ago and was also pleased. The work these people do is good. Keep it up – I am very thankful for the treatment.
Very knowledgeable, quick diagnosis of root cause and explanation of problem/weakness. Progressive exercises given, where it is easy for me to track progress and improvement. Efficient, professional, knowledgeable treatment in a very friendly environment.
