Nicola is a fantastic physio, who not only treats the injury, but examines the causes around it. She has helped me improve my running and swimming style, and that combined with her pilates classes have seen a real improvement in not only my back and neck issues, but general wellbeing.
We still believe in the hands-on approach with our clients but we feel there are lots of other ways to help you help yourself on the way to long term recovery and good health.
We pride ourselves on keeping up with current evidence and research so that our practice always delivers the best care. We don’t do things that are not proven to aid recovery.
Physiotherapy promotes recovery from injury but now physiotherapy is increasingly used in injury prevention, movement efficiency and general wellbeing as physiotherapists are the ‘movement experts’. We want people to feel and move better and we have a lot of tools at our disposal.More about physiotherapy ›
We offer physiotherapist led pilates classes that have evolved to address an individual’s movement needs to promote healthy, safe, efficient and painfree movement. Exercises have been developed based on normal movement biomechanics to retrain muscles and joints to move more efficiently, something that may have been lost through the presence of pain, injury or lifestyle demands.
Plym Pilates is ideally suited to people who perhaps struggle to participate in general exercise for one reason or another, but also an excellent way to develop body awareness, strength and control for those looking to prevent injury. Our pilates classes are small, usually around eight participants and are tailored to individual needs.
There is a range of classes from beginners to advanced, slower paced up to the power pilates class. This is the newest class which has evolved from the advanced class to provide an environment for those who already perform at a level of activity but have the odd niggle at higher levels or have been told they need to develop their ‘core’.More about Plym Pilates ›
We all move, some of us less efficiently than others and some of us can experience pain as a result of those inefficiencies.
Physiotherapists are the ‘movement experts’ so are ideally placed to analyse how a person moves and put together programmes designed to address these issues. This more preventative approach is a more modern way to look at treating musculoskeletal problems and can be applied across the spectrum from the young to the older patient as well as from the amateur athlete to the elites. If you think you would benefit from analysis of your movement patterns please contact us at the clinic.More about Movement Analysis ›

Ankle sprains are really quite common and can really vary in severity.
