HCPC No. PH37167
Physiotherapists provide treatment, exercise and advice to treat or improve musculoskeletal problems.
I’m Lindsey Anderson. Physio. I do that. But I also do so much more.
Physiotherapy is a total passion of mine. I love watching my clients become fit and healthy and active. I love hearing from someone who was told he’d never play golf again to let me know he’s just completed a round.
That’s Bob, by the way. He said…
She advised me, she treated me, she walked with me, she shouted at me, she laughed with me, and all I can say is, she has been an inspiration to me and brought me to where I am now. I am back to my beloved golf, something I thought I would never do again.”
That’s why I’m a physio.
You have one body. One life. How you look after it is ultimately up to you, but I’m here to help. I believe our bodies and minds are linked, I believe everyone is capable of getting the most from what they’ve been given.
I want to help you achieve whatever you want to achieve, to help your body support you in your passion, and give you the believe to accomplish everything you desire, whether it’s running a triathlon, managing arthritis so you can look after your garden or just recovering from injury to enable you to return to a normal life.
This passion for helping individuals has grown into a desire to help groups and communities through workshops, talks and events. I run professional training and education courses, group talks on arthritis, how to avoid sports injury and more. I also focus a lot on injury prevention as well as cure and rehabilitation. The best way to deal with an injury is not to get it in the first place!

By placing the individual in extreme positions, weaknesses and imbalances become observable and can help point the way to appropriate personalised exercise programs.
