Physiotherapy in Colchester, Essex 

Physiotherapists are experts in the physical function of the body and if you're looking for physiotherapy in Colchester, Essex, then you're in the right place. At Colchester Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic our area of expertise is musculoskeletal physiotherapy. We understand how muscle, joints, nerves and bone as well as other soft tissues interact or are affected by injury which is paramount in obtaining a diagnosis and producing effective treatment plan for patients. 
Establishing what has caused the problem is key to resolving it and this is why our clinicians will always be thorough in assessment both subjectively (listening to what you tell us is the problem) and objectively (observing, moving and palpating tissue to identify the source of the problem.)

"Some months ago – and I have no idea how or why – my right leg became stiff and inflexible. I could walk around without too much difficulty but getting a sock on the foot in the mornings was excruciating and took ages. I would stand there wondering why although the sock was only a few inches away from my toes it was simply too painful to make that final connection. Although you expect this sort of thing when you age (I am seventy now), I realized something had to be done. In despair, I tried physiotherapy with Craig. In the mornings I religiously practised the exercises he recommended, but with no real confidence in the outcome. But – blow me – before I knew where I was I could flex my right knee again and reach the foot to tie up shoe laces, get the sock on and off my foot and all the rest of it. Unbelievable. Craig: you are a miracle worker and this is one of those times when just saying thank you seems completely inadequate."

"I've been very impressed with the care I've received. Very knowledgeable, professional and encouraging. 
I like the app that gives me reminders to do my physio exercises and I liked that I was checked that I performed them correctly before I left the clinic. 
The exercises really work, I've been able to strengthen my hip instability, that was causing me knee pain, and get back to running. 
I also like that Craig tested and recorded the strength of my knee so I could see how that improved. 
I also visited with an aching hip recently and that is improving with the exercises. 
Worth every penny."
