Street Physiotherapy has been open since 1999 and is run by Beth Pearson, Sara Stobart and Angela Hughes.
We are not prescriptive with our treatments; each persons individual needs are listened to carefully, assessed and then we explain what we believe is the cause of the problem.
Treatment will often involve manual therapy, exercises and advice on how to improve and manage the condition themselves.
We believe giving our patients a full understanding of their problem helps everyone make realistic goals for their recovery.
We are all Chartered Physiotherapists and Clinical Pilates Instructors.
We are all registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
