An established practice in South Woodham Ferrers

Established for 30 years as a local business, our practice has been a preferred choice among clients in the Chelmsford area for physiotherapy and hollistic treatments that improve your health and well-being. Our expertise lies in a number of areas including hands-on manual therapy, sport, electrotherapy, acupuncture/acupressure, relaxation and other complementary therapies.

Essex Physiotherapy Clinic

At Essex Physiotherapy, we will listen to your concerns and dependent on what we find in your assessment, we will craft a tailor -made treatment programme to give you the best outcome possible after discussing all the elements with you.

We have successfully treated thousands of patients over the years, so can say with confidence that our physiotherapy is a good investment and that the reassurance of a good diagnosis and prognosis, skilled treatment, plus knowledgeable advice on what to do to help, can be more beneficial than any fancy gadget you might see advertised.

In addition to our musculoskeletal physiotherapy team, we provide neurological and respiratory physiotherapy in the clinic or in peoples home environment. Adia Lotz and Carly Marshall are physiotherapists who specialise in rehabilitation for Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, head injuries as well as respiratory conditions such as Asthma and COPD.
