New physiotherapy clinic open for business
A new physiotherapy service is open for business in the heart of the City. A York St John University graduate has returned to his former place of study opening a physiotherapy clinic in the Foss building at the Lord Mayor’s Walk campus. The clinic has access to the latest academic research and resources from York St John University and has already started taking bookings.
Physiotherapist Matthew Booth said: “We have an established clinic in Hull where we currently employ 9 full time members of staff, we are aiming to do the same with the set up in York and create direct employment opportunities for the physiotherapy graduates from York St John University. In addition to providing services for residents, we will offer staff and students a discounted rate for assessment and treatment services and create a beneficial learning environment for current Physiotherapy students at the University.”
With first-hand experience of working in professional sport, Matthew, whose expertise is biomechanical and exercise rehabilitation, uses biomechanics to enhance the recovery process alongside a combination of clinically led, research-based, hands-on physiotherapy techniques. Matthew graduated from York St John University in 2012 and has received a warm welcome back to the campus.
Director of Physiotherapy at York St John University Toni Bailey said: “The physiotherapy team at York St John are very much looking forward to the exciting development with Matthew Booth. The on-site physiotherapy clinic not only provides a clinical service to the community of York, but also enables a collaborative working environment between the clinicians and our students in terms of both clinical practice and research opportunities.”
