Here at Plym Physio we deliver a physiotherapy service with a difference. 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 to ensure this including;

  • Acupuncture – There is increasing evidence for its effectiveness in treating lots of musculo-skeletal problems including arthritis, back pain and sciatica. All our therapists (and the clinic) are locally and nationally registered.
  • Exercise therapy – Probably the most evidence-based tool we have. From minor postural corrections to muscle patterning re-education, it all works so to ensure you get the true value and  long term benefit from your treatment, we’ll encourage you to work hard under our direction HELPING YOU HELP YOURSELF.
  • Kinesio-taping – The use of taping is becoming a common part of practice with its beneficial role in pain relief as well as its effect on improving muscle and joint function as demonstrated by athletes and with its versatility it is becoming more and more popular  with both therapists and clients.
  • Electrotherapy – There is still a place for the use of machines but this tends to be less in isolation and more alongside other treatments as our knowledge base grows.

what do our clients say?


Having been treated regularly by Nic Rutherford for lower back pain over the last year I have found her to be not only astonishing in her level of knowledge around her field but also extremely supportive for my ongoing physical well-being, ensuring that I am equipped to maintain my health through proactive exercise regimens and changes in the way I operate on a day to day basis.

Having see many physios and chiropractors in the past, Nic is the first to identify my underlying condition and treat the cause rather than just the symptoms.
