What Our Patients Say About Us
Although the mind still thinks I’m the athlete I was in 1985, the body is not being as willing! Therefore I rely heavily on the expertise of Paul and the Physio and Therapy team to keep me in one piece and able to do the physical activity to keep the mind and body sane! I can’t thank Paul enough for all his help with ongoing Achilles and Calf problems and can’t recommend them enough.
Over the years I’ve had knee injuries and other running related problems which have largely disappeared following treatment at Physio&Therapy UK. I’m now running as fast as I did 15 years ago.
Paul Hobrough was a massive support at Physio & Therapy.
Treatments and advice from Physio&Therapy UK helped me finish my first marathon recently, I couldn’t have done it without the support of their team, thank you!
I would thoroughly recommend Paul Hobrough and the Physio and Therapy team to anyone who enjoys being active. I find fortnightly sessions just keep me in one piece and able to keep the activity levels up! Thanks to all the team for keeping the niggles at bay!

If you are suffering from an injury or ailment in the Northumberland area, tracking down a quality physiotherapist is a must. After all, how can you expect to make the most of the fantastic scenery, the endless beaches, the host of biking routes and wonderful walks that are right on your doorstep in Northumbria? Perhaps you are a sportsperson in the area who wants to hit the great outdoors and return to training as soon as possible. You may be recovering from surgery and need a helping hand to get back on your feet. You may just be suffering the effects of old age or a day job that has you stiff, sore and needing some relaxation and recuperation. Well, whatever your reasons for seeking physiotherapy, we are here to help.
We are an experienced and highly qualified centre for physiotherapy, offering the kind of bespoke and personal service that even the most demanding of customers can appreciate. We have worked with customers from across the spectrum, and we treat all of our customers the same: from office workers to Olympians. We use the latest and greatest in technology, as well as providing expert advice in a whole host of different treatment options. We look at alternative therapies and remedies, we can give guidance on orthotics and orthopaedic solutions and we can even provide shockwave therapy to target acute areas of pain and discomfort in the body.
What separates our services from the competition in the Northumberland area is this versatility. We deal with a range of conditions that may be the result of non-sporting reasons. We work with elderly patients suffering with arthritis, pregnant women struggling with painful cramps and much, much more besides. Physiotherapy can provide health benefits for all: providing pain management, improving posture and gait, helping the recovery process from surgery, helping with stress and stiffness in the joints. We are the best in Northumberland and beyond and can help you get back to your prime fitness level.
Cure pain in your back, neck, shoulder or foot.
Whatever part of your body is suffering, we have the staff, the tools and the knowhow to get you back to one hundred percent fitness. Hurting joints, consistent aches and chronic pain can afflict anyone at any time. When pain strikes, you need a physiotherapist to advise and allocate treatment as required. Some areas are common sources of complain that can strike everyone from athletes to the elderly and anyone in between. The back, neck, shoulders and feet all are put under considerable stress and strain in day to day life, but luckily our team are on hand to give expert advice and specialist treatment to ease those aches and pains.
The back is one area that can suffer serious pain. From painful conditions like piriformis to sciatic complaints, back problems can lead to broken sleep, time off work and being confined to bed for extended periods of time. Spinal conditions, general backache, slipped disks and more can all be treated using chiropractic techniques from our highly trained staff. We also have alternative treatments available, such as acupuncture and shockwave therapy, along with injections and an epidural available to provide a numbing effect for particularly severe cases of back pain. Sports massage may also be used to give a general soothing affect to the afflicted area, and lumbar support may be suggested to improve things further.
Neck and shoulder complaints are also a common cause for concern. Besides coming from sporting injuries, such as tennis and golf professionals, this area of the body is often strained by driving accidents, and repetitive strain injuries from bad posture in the workplace can also lead to problems. Luckily, our team offer massage therapy to reduce stiffness and soreness on the neck. There are also targeted treatment options for conditions such as bursitis, to manage pain better and give relief to the afflicted area. Acupuncture and shockwave therapy may also be used in some cases, driving away those shooting pains that can take over the collarbone.
Pain in the feet is another keen area of interest for future patients. Bunions are a common complaint for patients of all ages, along with general footpain, swollen toes and feet, orthopaedic concerns, hammertoe, osteoarthritis and more besides. Our team are incredibly experienced, and can provide a number of different treatments. From recommending orthopaedic supports and insoles to injections to help with pain, we are here to help you put your best foot forward. Other options also include pronation, supination and rehabilitation for metatarsal breaks. When so much of your day is spent walking, and when so many sporting activities rely on your feet to be in top condition, we can examine and evaluate on a case by case basis and impart our wisdom on you.
Mend aching muscles and ease your sports injuries
For those seeking treatment from sporting injuries, or those looking to take away the pain and swelling from extensive exercise, we have the options you require. We work with a number of professional athletes, from golfers to tennis stars, from runners to Olympians. We can help with the recovery and recuperation following surgery from serious injury, such as a torn achilles tendon, a shattered kneecap, a slipped disk and more besides. This stage of rehabilitation can be a difficult and lonely process, which is why our friendly staff are such an essential source of support, knowledge and encouragement.
Our staff can also help with injury prevention - from observing a golfer’s swing to preventing conditions such as epicondylitis (tennis elbow). Painful conditions that can afflict sports professionals who are pushing their bodies to the limits are also treated by our team. Swollen knees and toes, back spasms, cyclists suffering with pain in their buttock to ankle ligament strains are all treated with the utmost care and attention. Advice around gait and on the correct footwear, orthotic advice for supports while exercising and dealing with foot pain in the plantar, sole, upper foot and heel are all available.
