About

Empire Physiotherapy recognises that your activities are important to you, and that to ensure your best performance your body needs to be in its very best condition.

We believe in enhancing your physical well-being from the inside out, working with you to identify the cause of your aches, pains and discomfort and creating a recovery programme tailored to your lifestyle and physical demands.

We specialise in musculoskeletal stability, with an experienced team who specialise in everything from the neck down to the toes. We also provide medical acupuncture, sports massage, desk screen equipment assessments, custom made insoles, and occupational physiotherapy, with an eye to reducing NHS waiting lists and giving clients early access to a reliable physiotherapy service – all at a reasonable price.

Our focus is to not only eradicate any immediate pain or concern, but to provide patients with the sustainable solutions and exercises that they can take home with them to ensure a speedy recovery. We believe the best treatments are those that come paired with education, giving patients the information that they need to reduce the risk of the injury reoccurring.

Empire Physiotherapy practitioners are registered with the Health and Care Professions council (HCPC), Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (AACP).
