Women's Health Physiotherapy
Physiotherapist Anna Clayton has recently completed additional training to provide a Women's health service.
Common symptoms during and after pregnancy can include back pain, pelvic girdle pain (PGP), diastasis recti, incontinence (stress and urge) and sciatica to name a few.
Appropriate treatment will be offered following an assessment. We will look at what muscles are working too hard and not hard enough to help support your pelvis and lower back. Often the pelvic floor can already be strong and overactive, resulting in the wrong muscles overcompensating and producing pain symptoms.
If indicated, an internal examination can determine how active your pelvic floor muscles are and what can be done to help your symptoms. They are just like any other muscle in your body! Consent forms and information is given prior to this and is not completed unless indicated by symptoms and questionnaire findings.
If you have any queries, please contact the clinic.
There are also Antenatal and Post natal Pilates classes available to maintain good posture before and after birth and ensure your muscles start to wake up following birth and help keeping you moving normally as you care for your baby.

Acupuncture can be used as part of the treatment for a wide variety of conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, shoulder and knee pain, osteoarthritis, headaches and migraines and neurological conditions.
For many people it gives good pain relief without pills. It is also good for relieving stress, anxiety and systemic dysfunction.Learn more about Acupuncture
Bury Sports Injury Clinic
We run a specialised sports injury clinic on Wednesday evenings.
You will receive an initial assessment from Clinical Physiotherapist Mark Alderton with referral to Orthopaedic Consultant Mr Paul Nicolai if further investigations are required.
Information will be taken about your injury followed by an assessment. You will be given suitable advice and treatment to help you get back to your sport as soon as possible.
We specialise in assessing and treating sporting injuries because we know there is nothing worse than an injury which stops you from competing or training. We can provide treatment for an acute injury that you are worried about to the long term problem that just won't go away.
To book an appointment, please call the clinic on 01284 748200.
See http://www.knee-doc.co.uk/ for further information about Mr Nicolai and his work as a specialist knee surgeon.Learn more about Bury Sports Injury Clinic
Persistent dizziness and poor balance following an attack of vertigo or labryinthitis is debilitating and can persist for many months. This can be treated by specialist physiotherapy using a combination of specific exercises and manual therapy.
Balance problems and falls are common in older people. Falls can lead to loss of confidence and fractures causing disability and loss of independence. Falls can be prevented by physiotherapy to improve flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. There is good evidence that 85 year olds can improve their strength and balance significantly in a 6 week activity programmeLearn more about Dizziness
Facial palsy can be devastating, affecting often fit and healthy people. Treatment can begin within days or many years after its onset.
At BuryPhysio, Tanya Legrand, who has been trained at The Lindens Clinic, centre of excellence, offers an assessment to produce a personalised programme which can include Trophic Electrical Stimulation (TES), biofeedback, exercise, passive stretch techniques and eye care advice.Learn more about Facial Palsy
Gait and Running Analysis
A gait and running assessment includes a biomechanical video analysis of your legs from your pelvis to your toes.
This will identify the underlying cause of persistent and recurrent problems such as low back, hip, thigh, knee, ankle or foot pain particularly if this comes on after exercise such as walking, running or playing sport. It’s also beneficial if you undertake sport at high level and have an ache or pain in your back or lower limbs that is affecting your performance. We can use this technology to analyse technique for other sports too.Learn more about Gait and Running Analysis
Headaches and Migraine
Headaches, migraines and pain in the neck can be extremely disruptive to everyday life.

Shockwave is a well-developed, safe and highly effective treatment for musculoskeletal disorders
The shockwaves produce high energy sound waves into painful areas of the body such as tendons, ligaments, muscles and bone.
Some of the benefits of shockwave are experienced after 1-3 sessions with most people seeing good improvements with five regular treatments even if symptoms are chronic in nature.
The shockwave therapy helps to eliminate pain and restore mobility regardless of whether individuals are keen amateurs or elite sports players
Treatment can be effective for:
- Achilles tendinopathy
- plantar fasciitis
- tennis and golfer’s elbows
- trigger point issues
- patella tendinopathy
- shoulder tendinopathies
Shockwave treatment can be offered at Bury Physio as part of normal treatment or as part of a package with a gym programme. Research has found that using shockwave in conjunction with a supervised rehabilitation gym programme can produce the best outcomes.Learn more about Shockwave Therapy
