HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
INJURY ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT
If you have pain or an injury that is limiting you we can help. Book in for an Initial assessment where we will take a detailed history and do a thorough assessment, from there we create an individualised treatment plan aimed at achieving your goals.
Some injuries or following certain surgical procedures a longer period of rehab may be required, we offer packages to help maximise your results. We aim to guide you through each stage of your rehab. This may include some hands on manual therapy, soft tissue therapy, gym based rehab, or on pitch rehab. This is something that can be discussed during your initial assessment.
At Movement Room Physiotherapy our aim is to keep you moving, whether that's enjoying some recreational activity or competing at the highest level. An MRP Screening session can help keep you injury free and performing at your best. During an MRP Screening session we will take a detailed injury and training history, we use some of the latest testing equipment to look at movement patterns, mobility, strength, power and control.

WHAT PREVIOUS CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Hilary was my physio for Wales Women Rugby 7’s. I sustained a few injuries whilst playing, and Hilary worked nothing short of miracles with me!! She would always listen straight away and trust athletes with how their bodies felt. I know something wasn’t right with both my stress fracture injuries and my torn meniscus in my knee. Both injuries were tricky to diagnose, but Hilary was instrumental - both in the diagnosis phase and during my rehab. Both times, Hilary helped to get me back in time for the major tournaments I was aiming for. As a result of Hilary’s support, I was able to achieve my goals, and compete in the Commonwealth Games. I couldn’t have done it without her, and will be forever grateful. I couldn’t recommend Hilary enough!! So professional, knowledgeable and empathetic.

Hilary at the Movement Room is a great physio who has helped me since the beginning of my rugby career starting with the Manawatu to All Blacks 7s. Currently playing rugby in the Top14 in France I continue to follow Hilary’s rehabilitation exercisers.

I’m so grateful to have been able to work with Hilary. When we met I had a long standing injury and she truly helped me get through a very important European Championships and there after. Whilst working with Hilary she was only a text message away. Any queries or questions I needed answering she would always have great advice and support.

Amazing care and attention dealing with injuries both from a physical / clinical perspective but also takes the psychological impact of injuries into consideration. Always up for a laugh as well!
