A SMALL family run physiotherapy business is giving back to the NHS following the coronavirus pandemic.

Physiohelp4you is offering all NHS workers 20 per cent off all treatments with the practice for life.

It has been based at the Ridgewood Community Centre in Chipping Sodbury since 2016.

The practice offers local people access to some of the latest equipment available in private practice alongside conventional hands on physiotherapy and sports rehabilitation.

Both therapists are MSc qualified and have provided fast, safe and effective care for more than 1,000 patients to date, using a range of treatments including laser therapy, electrotherapy and ultrasound.

Other services available include post/pre-natal massage, deep tissue and sports massage, MSK specialist care and recovery and lymphatic drainage

Owner Maggie Mugglestone, a physiotherapist, started physiohelp4you with the goal to help as many people as she could enjoy a pain free and healthy lifestyle

During lockdown, Maggie offered her help during the Governments recruitment drive to help during the current Covid-19 crisis but was unsuccessful due to huge numbers who had already signed up.

She decided to use her practice to give back instead.

She said: “We are acutely aware of the tremendous efforts our NHS colleagues have overcome and have yet to face so we felt our gesture was the least we could offer.

“As everyone is, we are extremely proud of our NHS and all who work together to support it. We decided several weeks ago to offer all NHS workers a lifetime discount of 20 per cent off all our services. A small gesture that we hope helps express the gratitude of the many.”

NHS workers can book online using the code NHS20 to receive a 20% on all services for life or ring the office on 0751 443 2260 for details.
