Expert physiotherapists in Staffordshire

Who we are

Officially opened in 2003, with Gordon Banks O.B.E. as the guest of honour, Church Lane Physiotherapy Clinic Ltd is an established physiotherapy practice that specialises in the treatment of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, offering everything from sports massage to electrotherapy and acupuncture. We pride ourselves on delivering a consistently high standard of treatment in a friendly and professional environment.
Using evidence-based treatment and researched clinical practice, we aim to provide the highest standard of assessment and treatment possible, with the aim of returning patients to functional recovery as quickly and efficiently as possible.
At the initial assessment, as well as undertaking a full physical assessment to reach a diagnosis, time is taken to address the patient’s lifestyle and factors which may have contributed to or exacerbated the condition. Having reached a diagnosis, a tailored individual treatment plan is formulated for each patient.
We also believe in helping the patient to understand fully their condition and its causes, so that every effort can be made to avoid any future recurrence. All our physiotherapists are HPC registered and our sports injury clinic is recognised by all major health insurance companies.
