About PhysioDirect

PhysioDirect was Founded in July 1996 by Tim Rickard and a small group of very experienced Chartered and State Registered (now the Health Care Professionals Council HCPC) musculoskeletal physiotherapists.

A commercial cooperative organisation was established to share the cost of marketing and to offer the benefits of a corporate structure whilst retaining the flexibility of independent private practice.

This concept has evolved. Some members have grown more than others but the structure remains wholly unchanged.   A high standard of service delivery is still our priority whilst being able to offer a  range of specialty services that would traditionally be unavailable from a small clinic.



PhysioDirect has grown from a group of single handed practitioners to an organisation which now includes multidisciplinary clinics and rehabilitation facilities. PhysioDirect provides contract services to the NHS and corporate sectors offering a complete range of musculoskeletal treatment and preventative options.


Our success has been achieved by providing Accessible and Affordable Physiotherapy. Our Physiotherapy clinics are based throughout Nottingham - Mapperley Park - Beeston - Colwick Park  - & Wollaton. For more information on each of our clinics visit our clinic listings.

What is Physiotherapy?

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 (CSP, 2012).


Physiotherapy can be defined as:

Physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status. Physiotherapy is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery. The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core"  (CSP, 2012)
