Nicole has spent the last 3 years with Phil Harris at The Newbury clinic gaining valuable experience working with both NHS patients and elite athletes. She believes in practical, honest advice to get you back to your sport as soon as possible.
Before that she spent two years at The Spire Bristol working closely with consultants such as Jonathan Webb, Jonathan Eldridge, James Murray and John Hardy. She has been lucky enough to be involved with UK Boardmasters, the special Olympics and local events.
Managing Physiowizz.co.uk gives Nicole great insight into the latest up to date evidence and the ability to network with researchers across the world. This has allowed her to build connections with other physiotherapists to continue giving the best possible treatment.
Nicole is a specialist sports physiotherapist and has a wide experience working with elite athletes ( including England Women Rugby Players) and amateur athletes. She has a special interest in the shoulder and has helped many runners manage injuries before competitions. Her own experience in sport has taught her the resilience needed and psychological impact of being out of training. This gives her the edge in helping you get back on track and expert knowledge to ensure you get the right advice and treatment. People experiencing non sporting injuries can benefit from her systematic approach without the delay of waiting for NHS treatment.
Nicole will listen to YOUR story. She will address all aspects of pain or reduce function and tailor a plan specifically for you. She will go the extra mile to offer the latest, evidence based treatments and provide you with the education of how to reduce the risk of it occurring again.

“I was very happy with the session. It was the first time I had had any deep tissue work and I really noticed an improvement in my back and neck afterwards. I felt like I was treated well and made to feel very comfortable.”

This is a common question. Massage is one treatment modality included within the umbrella of physiotherapy. If you have a pain from injury or a pain that has come on over time that needs assessment to get a clear diagnosis then a physiotherapy assessment is usually best. If you have general aches an pains but nil specific problem then try massage first and our team can refer you on if they feel it is appropriate.
An initial assessment usually lasts between 30-45 minutes and costs £60 with Nicole or £45 with associates.
Follow ups are usually 30 minutes for £50 with Nicole or £40 with associates.
Home visits (Bristol) £60
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability. As members of the CSP, physiotherapists abide by a professional code of conduct to continue professional development and offer high standards of treatment.
A detailed history will be taken which gives the physio clues about the structures involved. The mechanism of injury and pattern of pain are very important in reaching the correct diagnosis. Once we have sat down and discussed your symptoms, restrictions in every day life and pain pattern we will then look at how you move, the joints range of motion and carry out various tests to reach our diagnosis.
Throughout the assessment the physio will be gentle and ask how certain movements affect your pain. The assessment should not be painful and we will always find other ways to assess your movement if you are unable to tolerate any of the tests.
To be able to assess properly physio’s need to be able to see the area affected. If it is a shoulder problem then you may be required to remove your top. For ladies a tank top/ strappy top would be ideal to be able to see the area needed.
For back, knees and hips it is important to see the surrounding muscles therefore shorts are a great idea or sensible underwear!
Nicole/Maggie are registered with most insurance companies and also treats self funding patients. Physiotherapist are autonomous practitioners and therefore do not require a referral from a doctor for treatment. Physiotherapists are trained to recognise patterns that may be sinister in nature and can refer you to the appropriate place ie orthopaedic surgeon or GP if needed.
