“Physiotherapy Works. It's both clinically and cost-effective. It makes a huge difference to people’s quality of life as they live longer and grow older.”
Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

“I believe Physiotherapy can go beyond the purely physical, to empower and bring healing to the whole person”
Ewelina Jakubus - MGM Physiotherapist
At MGM Clinics our Physiotherapist works alongside a Chiropractor and Sports Massage therapist towards the same goal - making the patient better. We believe each should do what they do best, but also recognise when something is better
suited to be handled by one of the other practitioners.
Physiotherapy can improve:
Neurological - stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Neuromusculoskeletal - back pain, whiplash, sports injuries, arthritis
Cardiovascular - chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack
Respiratory - asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis
MGM Clinics believes the key to successfully treating patients is being able to provide the skills, knowledge and experience to make an accurate diagnosis, and providing the right treatment at the right time to get them better as soon as possible.
The Physiotherapist ensures that not only are the acute symptoms dealt with, but will help to prevent a reoccurrence of symptoms which can lead to more chronic conditions.
At MGM Clinics we provide a complete system of examination, diagnosis, treatment, education and prevention advice.
When you first come to MGM Clinics we will take you through a new patient consultation form, which may include information about you and your lifestyle plus relevant medical, exercise, and injury history. We will discuss this with you and answer any questions you might have before your treatment.Request Appointment
Your visit will last about 30 minutes. We understand many people live busy lives, and want to be helped to an efficient solution. We aim to treat you quickly and on time.
We will never charge you more than £35, no matter who you see or for how long.
It’s always helpful if you take anything that might be relevant to your health history, such as scans, X-rays or test results.
Many people come in with existing pain, but you are in control of how deeply the Physiotherapist works. The Physiotherapist will check with you throughout your treatment that any treatment is comfortable for you.
Each person’s requirements are different and we can work as deeply or gently as you prefer. If stronger pressure is required due to deeper knots in the muscle tissue, then the pressure needed to successfully treat knots can result in the damage necessary to form a bruise. Following this, or in the case of cupping or acupuncture for example, there may be some bruising. This is not a cause for concern, and may be beneficial to the healing process.
We have worked with people that have used medication to manage pain, or tried other therapies without success. When used in conjunction with Chiropractic we find Physiotherapy to be especially beneficial in clients’ responses to treatment overall.
It is recommended to have access to the area that needs to be treated. Many people wear shorts, but whatever you feel comfortable wearing is fine. The Physiotherapist may use some oil to assist in massage so you will be offered a towel, or gown if preferred.
Our team are always happy to speak to you to answer any further questions you may have. If you wish to schedule a telephone call please call our main reception line on 01279 456007 and they will arrange a call back for you, or email us, any time.
This will vary according to individual needs. Some people come to treat an acute issue and others will use Physiotherapy as part of their preventative health programme. It is also very efficient when used in combination with Chiropractic. We are happy to welcome you once, or multiple times!
We will advise you following your treatment to help you manage your condition at home and in turn speed up recovery. Client education is at the centre of what we do at MGM Clinics and it is our goal to make sure we have well informed clients.
Up to 80% of woman experience low back pain with varying severity during pregnancy. Physical therapy during pregnancy can be useful for remedying common discomforts like back pain or for enhancing the body’s ability to have a smoother pregnancy and birth, as well as for aftercare. The reasons for back pain will vary from person to person, and may be caused by an increase in hormones, a change in the body’s centre of gravity, gaining additional weight, a decline in posture or added stress -all of which can be improved be regular treatments. These may include mobilisations, soft tissue release, acupuncture, exercise therapy and taping.
At MGM Clinics we offer Physiotherapy for Musculoskeletal issues in children over the age of 11. Those younger patients will benefit from a referral to a paediatric Physiotherapist, and we are happy to assist with a referral. Following assessment, part of a child’s treatment may involve the Physiotherapist developing treatment plans, if appropriate, then training parents and children to implement these at home. Our team is happy to provide holistic, child and family centred care.
We understand that sometimes life gets in the way. We ask that you give 24 hours’ notice to cancel or change an appointment, otherwise it may be chargeable.
The body is designed to move. If you stop moving, your body will respond accordingly and a joint which is no longer being used will seize up when your body judges it is no longer needed. This is also why muscles waste so easily if you don’t exercise. Ask us about exercises you can do during your work day, or easy adaptations towards a standing desk!
The digital age is causing a lot of back/neck issues and regular treatment is becoming a necessity. We encourage anyone who uses a phone or a computer to come and see us every 3 months as a preventative measure.
Maintaining an active lifestyle and good posture is key. There is also a strong correlation between issues with the hamstrings and lower back pain, and we will be happy to help educate you in this and other key areas. We highly recommend simple morning stretches, which are valuable and open up the Nervous System. We also run regular educational talks on the use of foam rollers- so ask us about signing up for one of these- they are free!
