For ordinary people with ordinary problems and extraordinary people with extraordinary problems

Welcome to Nicola Ellis Physiotherapy

I have worked for many years as a private physiotherapist in Cheltenham and established my current clinic in 2001. The purpose built pavilion is attached to my home on Old Bath Road and was awarded a Civic Commendation in recognition of its environmental contribution to Cheltenham.

My aim is to help you work out what is causing, or perpetuating your symptoms, and to make you feel better. I specialise in problem solving, from seemingly minor advice and concerns, to unresolved aches and pains or much more deep-seated issues.

This may involve getting you sitting more comfortably in your office or car, or more in-depth investigation of your work and play.

My focus is always on you and finding out what it feels like to have your problem.

As well as running my clinical practice I was invited to set up the physiotherapy and ergonomics side of the Occupational Health service for Gloucestershire Police Force and ran this for 14 years. I have also provided on-site consultancy for local Industry and offices as well as treating their work force.

Everyone loves my admin staff and I am so lucky to have them.

Patients can be referred or refer themselves. I work with most major health insurers except BUPA. Insurers’ terms vary greatly & some require your GP’s approval prior to treatment so it is advisable to check before making your appointment.
