Morecambe Bay Physiotherapy has expanded by opening a new practice in Carnforth.

The company, which is part of the Physio Med network, has launched the Versatile Clinic on Lancaster Road.

It is the latest addition to the business’ portfolio of clinics, which includes sites in Morecambe, Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh, and will specialise in musculoskeletal podiatry and sports injury therapy.

Bosses said the expansion was part of the firm’s “organic and ambitious business growth plan” and that the new location would allow much easier access to a greater range of services.

Alex Burch, director and principal chartered physiotherapist at the centre, said: “We’re delighted to expand the Morecambe Bay service and reach out to new parts of the region.

“The ethos behind Versatile is to provide bespoke therapy options alongside the very best chartered physiotherapy service, to meet all of our patients’ movement and wellbeing needs.

“It’s great to see successful practices such as Morecambe Bay Physiotherapy growing their business and offering an even wider and more specialist set of services to their clients.

“We wish them all the very best with the new clinic.”

The Carnforth operation is a 500 square metre clinic.

It includes a pilates and yoga studio, a large mirrored gym, two treatment rooms and a waiting room with private parking.

The team offers regular physiotherapy treatments and additional treatments including Alexander Technique, biomechanical analysis, matrix screening, and sports massage.

At the moment, the centre employs five chartered physiotherapists.

It has appointed a Health and Care Professions Council-registered podiatrist and a chartered physiotherapist in pelvic health for men and women.

And the company plans to take on new practitioners to bolster its team.
