ABOUT NIDD VALLEY PHYSIO
The aim at Nidd Valley Physio is to provide treatment personalised to you, with a holistic approach, which will consider all the factors leading up to your visit. We will spend time investigating how your pain affects you on a daily basis and what you want to achieve during your treatment, so in partnership we can achieve the best outcome.
We won't tell you your problems have been caused by 'wear & tear' or 'old age', as we believe language like this can be detrimental to perception of the problem. We will make sure you fully understand the issues you have come with and what we can do about it in plain, easy to understand terms.
We specialise in movement, whether this is getting you ready for your first running race or if you just want to get more mobile around the home, the principles are the same and there is always an opportunity to learn to move better.
My name is Siobhãn, principal physio at Nidd Valley Physio. I gained my BSc in Physiotherapy from Liverpool University in 2012. My passion is being in the great outdoors and previous to this, I completed a degree in Outdoor Studies in the Lake District spending several subsequent years living and travelling around the world from Hong Kong to the Canadian Rockies.
The Nidd Valley is now where I call home, and where I hope to be able to help my local community in achieving their physical goals and reducing their pain through a holistic approach of movement and education. Since graduating I have gained a broad range of experience of working in the NHS, as a ski physio in Val d'Isere and in private practice in the UK. In addition, I teach Pilates and Yoga classes which are currently online and in-person.
My name is Tom and I gained my BSc in Physiotherapy from Bristol UWE University. When I’m not working, you will find me out and about in the hills, either with my hiking boots, trail running kit or mountain bike. Failing that, I’ll be eating and drinking some quality food and beer!
I’ve worked in a range of areas including elite sport where I worked with the Japanese National Men's Rugby Team, the NHS where I worked as a Specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist and in the private sector, both in and out of the clinic. Being in the support team at international cycling events was a lot of fun!
The main reason why I wanted to become a physiotherapist was to help people get back to doing what they love doing, be it playing with the grandkids to running a personal best. I’d love to meet you and work with you!
