Wrexham Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinic

About US

Established in 1990 by Judith Seddon at Wrexham Rugby Club

Established in 1990 by Judith Seddon at Wrexham Rugby Club, the practice has been at its current site in The North Wales Regional Tennis Centre since June 2000.

At Wrexham Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinic we have an enviable reputation for the treatment of our clients due to our extensive experience and knowledge of musculo-skeletal conditions. All of our staff are members of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (MCSP) and are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HPCP)

Employing 8 Chartered Physiotherapists, the clinic has 4 individual treatment rooms, a separate waiting area & administration office. In addition the Tennis Centre site offers ample parking & disabled access, along with onsite gym facilities & a café.

We utilise a range of electrotherapy equipment and a traction unit to complement our 'hands-on' manual/manipulative therapy. More recently we have purchased an Extra Corporeal Shock Wave machine which traditionally has only been available to patients on a private basis via consultant referral. We can now offer this treatment to any clients without the need to see a hospital based surgeon/medic.

We also provide occupational Health services to a number of local and multi-national corporate clients, sports clubs & insurance companies/solicitors following personal injuries. We are also fully qualified in medico-legal reporting & are able to submit reports to a court of law to support any medico-legal claims made by our clients if requested.

Home visits may also be arranged for clients who are unable to attend the practice.
We provide physiotherapy treatment without consulting your GP. Alternatively your Doctor or Specialist may refer you for treatment. (See our appointments page for more details)

It is advisable to consult your insurance company as to the conditions and level of cover.
