COVID-19 Action Plan

To all our clients at Impact Physio

We are monitoring the situation closely and are following the guidance of our governing bodies, the local health authorities and World Health Organization (WHO), to ensure we are doing our part to keep you and our wider communities safe. 

If you have any concerns about attending your appointment, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you need to reduce your risk due to personal or wider responsibilities to others, are within a vulnerable category yourself or need to self-isolate due to a persistent new cough or have a fever then please don’t physically attend your appointment.

We are able to offer either telephone consultations or video links to enable your management to continue. In most cases we can continue to offer assessment, advice and our classes in a virtual environment therefore avoiding contact risk.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss this further or make contact prior to your scheduled time to organise this.

If you are well and able to keep your appointment then we can assure you that we continue to maintain our high standards of infection control. We have also increased vigilance with the most-touched surfaces like door handles, credit card readers, and restrooms. We also ensure our team are following guidelines regarding their own health. 

We wish you all the best at this time and thank-you for your continued support.

Robin Hood Half

Impact Physiotherapy have been event partners with the Robin Hood event since 2007.

We were delighted to support the event again this year, our 12th year! The physio & massage support has grown to include 3 tents and over 50 volunteers. The team at Impact continue to prioritise this as a fund raising event for the official charities and were delighted this year to invite our colleagues at The University of Nottingham Sports Injury Clinic to join us.

The new team enabled us to offer an even bigger service to the runners, alongside of course the student Physiotherapists and Sports Rehabilitation students from University of Nottingham and Sheffield Hallam University and the Sports Therapy students from The University of Derby who were keen to practice their skills under the supervision of the qualified physios.

The Physiotherapy team were available to help on race day with any pre-race injury advice, or race preparations to a relaxing post-race recovery massage and any injury assessments that were required.

 

 

Cyclone 24

We’re looking forward to supporting this event again in 2 weeks time. It was amazing to see last year the stamina & commitment & teamwork during this 24 hour endurance event. Teams of up to 6 riders aim to complete as many laps as they can during 24 hours. Phenomenal! We supported the riders with a small team of therapists and student volunteers from The University of Derby and The University of Nottingham, providing a well earned massage and chance to stretch out for 15 minutes on a comfy couch! Good luck to the riders – see you in a fortnight.

blog – final weeks of preparation

So this event might be out of your comfort zone but if you’ve ever been tempted to get on a bike and give it a go, I would highly recommend getting yourself signed up for a taster at the arena. We are so fortunate to have such a facility on our doorstep, especially as the Derby Arena is base to our Pride Park clinic. We enjoyed our track session as a team and plan to repeat it again this year.

I always felt quite uncomfortable when it came to having to get massages for muscle pain however, booking in with Sara was the best thing I ever did. Not only did she make me feel comfortable but she listened to me and took the time to help and advise me. Her approach is fantastic and she is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend Sara.

I was referred to impact by my doctor due to severe arthritis in my hips ,had a very long wait for an appointment and to be honest I was not expecting physio to help much .I saw a lovely physio called Steven who immediately puts you at ease and after a few weeks I saw much improvement .At the end of my course of physio the pain had eased a lot and was much less painful on walking .I definitely would recommend impact physio and particularly Steven who I would like to thank for all his help .

Came here for the first time a few months ago looking for help with my lower back. I had a god sit down chat with Jack and then a number of physio sessions thereafter. Jack was incredibly helpful, informative and very passionate about his work and getting me better. Jack gave me a clear timeline and a structured plan of physio which has helped me incredibly. I would highly recommend Impact Physio to anyone that needs physio and if I ever do need to go back it will be Jack I go back to see.

I had 8 Physio sessions with my physio therapist Chris and he was most helpful and considerate throughout for all of my problems.

My First experience was with Chris Davenport on referral for hip and spine problems by my GP. Two courses done and he recommended Hatha yoga to supplement his treatment and help me long term. However before I could implement it lockdown came in so it was delayed until Autumn this year. I signed (with Mariangela)not fully knowing or expecting much in the way of personal tailoring or yoga exercise to be relevant to my situation. I needn’t have worried as the class of six is like minded and Mariangela caters (and cares) for us all. Bonus is it seems to be working; thanks Mariangela. The covid care from all at LE clinic is first class and not uncomfortable allowing for windows open. Reception staff always friendly with a smile. All in all just the tonic Update following treatment again in 2023 Not the first time I’ve used this service, same location, same Physiotherapist (Chris Davenport) and yes the same receptionist’s. As before they provided me with the ( in my view) the best treatment they could given my arthritis coupled with a set treatment time scale provided by the NHS. Thanks to all the staff.

Having pulled a hamstring at work and being unable to walk for a few days,my wife booked me in with impact Physio.I was looking at being off work for about 2-3 months.On the day of my appointment,I was met by a pretty young lady who got me to walk away from her then back again a few times.I was then asked to lie on my back on the couch where a pair of expert hands gently massaged the delicate hamstring area.A bit of manipulation got me a bit of pain,causing me to jolt slightly, but I was expecting worse anyway.I was then asked to lie face down on the couch.My lower back was then massaged and manipulated.The whole session took probably 30 minutes.The physiotherapist was always talking to me,saying what she was going to do, and wether or not I would experience any pain or discomfort.She was very good at her job, and did it professionally.Within 2 weeks, I was back at work.If you need a physiotherapist, look no further than Impact Physio.They don't come cheap, but you pay for what you get,rather than get what you pay for.Mine was worth every penny.I will definitely use Impact Physio again if i need to.

Having long term back pain is  not easy and same goes for three discectomies. Initially my physiotherapist was chosen for me by a spinal surgeon and I went with his choice but after meeting Louise and going through her 1:1 sessions I ended up attending the Long Eaton clinic for the last six years. Louise has an impressive  knowledge base and will always find a way to keep you mobile even when you feel you won't ever be able to move normal . During the years we worked together on  my back  she attended many courses and conferences and her skills make it so that , somehow, we still rarely repeat an exercise and I am sure there are many more to discover.She worked her "magic" on me so many times that I now only trust her with my recovery from yet another discectomy. Due to her skills I  managed to lead a normal life, I was able to keep my job which can be quite strenuous , I travelled long distances by plane or car , basically kept active. My admiration for  Louise is endless. Not only she is an excellent physiotherapist and Pillates instructor, but she is  also a wonderful human being ,who in this day and age  has maintained empathy and compassion for the suffering of those around her. I wouldn't want to miss Laura and Sandy and the whole reception  team from this review . Thank you for your help and support over the years ladies! It is much appreciated.

My daughter was referred by her GP and we had 2 appointments with Louise. She was brilliant and really good with my 8 year old daughter. Both appointments were thorough and my daughter was shown lots of different exercises to do at home with explanations of how they would help her. We also had emails showing the exercises in videos as well. The appointments were during 'covid times' as well and we felt very safe.

Would totally recommend Impact Physio, and in particular Annalise. Referred here due to neck/shoulder pain during Covid, the service was safe, professional and most importantly effective. Annalise spent time to really understand the background to my issues to treat the cause, as well as the symptoms
