Hexham physiotherapy firm bags £65k investment and new jobs for region
Physiotherapy practice, Achilles Physio, has reported a 110 per cent growth in sales after a large-scale investment into the recently relaunched business.
Hexham-based Achilles Physio relaunched in September 2017 after a change in ownership and has invested £65k into new equipment, rebranding the private practice and creating new jobs.
Achilles Physio specialises in fully integrated treatments including physiotherapy, sports massage, pilates and acupuncture.
Its approach includes taking clients from diagnosis, to treatment, to rehabilitation, in the hope they don’t need to return for further treatment.
Kristi Bester, director of physiotherapy at Achilles Physio, said: “Our relaunch has boosted a huge growth in clientele over the past six months, and with the practice’s rebranding and recruitment expansion, we’re expecting further growth over the coming year.
“At Achilles Physio we understand the modern day pressures, the barriers to exercise and ever-changing nutritional habits, which is why - in addition to our physical treatments - we will work with you to develop a practical rehabilitation and fitness plan, expertly tailored to your personal lifestyle and individual goals.
“From elderly clients with chronic pain to active individuals with sports injuries, we see clients travel from across the region to receive quality treatment from our experts.”
The private practice currently has one part time and two full time physiotherapists and is in the process of recruiting across the business to cope with growing customer demand.
New roles include new full time experienced ‘musculoskeletal’ physiotherapists and a receptionist to aid in the day to day running of the company.
Kris added: “There is no better reward than being able to assist patients in their rehabilitation and have a better quality of life.
“I am lucky enough to have practiced around the world in a host of different physiotherapy settings that has advanced my knowledge and experience in physiotherapy, pilates and acupuncture.
“Having my own physiotherapy practice is a dream come true. I love Hexham and it’s very satisfying for me to help the local community.
