Our Plymouth pilates classes are extremely popular. The classes have been designed by our team to address your individual movement needs to help promote healthy, safe, efficient and painfree movement on an ongoing basis through the use of pilates.
From Plympton, Plym Physio's friendly team offers Plymouth physiotherapy services. We believe physiotherapy is not just for injury recovery but for injury prevention, movement efficiency and general wellbeing too.
Our movement analysis treatment offers a real preventative approach by our friendly staff that addresses movement difficulties throughout your body. From shoulders to hips, ankles to your back, this physiotherapy technique is proven to help you.
I have ongoing neck and shoulder problems and have seen Nicola a number of times over the last 5 years for physiotherapy including acupuncture. On each occasion this has made a massive difference to my overall level of pain and range of movement. In addition to this for the last 2 years I have attended Nicola’s Pilates class on a weekly basis. Since starting these classes I have had no need for further physiotherapy sessions and I am equipped with the knowledge of different exercises to help relieve my symptoms. I really can’t recommend Nicola highly enough!!

So it’s National Fitness Day, before you switch off, what is fitness? Straight from the dictionary – it is the quality of being suitable to fulfil a particular role or task. That role or task can be as hard or as easy as is appropriate to you and your lifestyle. The task may even just…
It’s self care day this week so perhaps a good time to consider how well we are looking after ourselves. The school summer holidays are upon us and a lot of us will be taking the opportunity to take time off work and spend it with our families. Perhaps you’ll have time to see how…
Hello this is Neil and Nic from Plym Physio and today we are going to talk about shoulder problems, or problems that masquerade as shoulder problems. The shoulder and hip have some similarities but are functionally very different. The hip has a deep ball and socket joint and favours strength over mobility whilst the shoulder…
Based on the outskirts of Plymouth City Centre, Plym Physio are proud to offer a range of professional and affordable physio services from our Plymouth physiotherapy clinic.
Our friendly team aim to help you help yourself by being so much more than a traditional physiotherapy practice. Whereas a traditional physio may be used solely for injury recovery, our physio services, classes and general ethos are there to help prevent injuries, not just to cure pulls and strains or other problems that arise from injuries or bad office chairs.
From our new modern clinic in Plympton, just minutes from the centre of Plymouth, our friendly, reliable and fully qualified team offer a range of services to those in need:
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 to ensure this including;
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.
Our pilates classes are small, usually around eight participants but during covid this is reduced to 5, and are tailored to individual needs and are ability led. We therefore fully assess everyone coming into the classes so we can place them in the right class for their movement deficits and needs. They run as a ‘course’ made up of a one hour session once a week for 8 weeks.
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 been told they need to develop their ‘core’.
Our new physio clinic is not only spacious and modern, but we built a state of the art studio which is used for our popular Plymouth pilates and “Physi-go” classes. With regular classes and our clinic open for treatment 5 days a week our offering is second to none with happy clients from Plymouth and the surrounding areas coming back to us time and time again with a smile.
Although our team have years of experience between them, we understand that no injury or ailment is the same. At Plym Physio we pride ourselves on a bespoke service, taking the time to understand our clients, working alongside you to cure, reassure and support you throughout recovery while we also focus on an element of prevention to make sure the effects are lasting.
With an experienced team with varying skill sets, we’re able to treat a wide range of problems. From tennis elbow to sciatica, repetitive or one-off back pain to post injury rehabilitation, we’re confident our Plymouth Physiotherapy offering and friendly team will be able to provide a help you with pain and prevent further discomfort.
