Looking for a physio in the Liverpool area? RunningPhysio recommends The Physiotherapy Centre. 

The Physiotherapy Centre was opened in 2006 by Richard and Sarah Norris (nee Johnson) and has since developed into a leading provider of healthcare and injury rehabilitation in the North West of England. July 2012 saw a move to larger, modernised premises housing four treatment rooms, two pilates studios and twelve therapists, with state of the art equipment including pilates apparatus and real-time ultrasound imaging. The efforts of our team were recently acknowledged with the gold award for customer service.


Richard qualified from the University of Salford in 2003 and shares his hours between the clinic and the NHS, where he works along orthopaedic consultants as the lower-limb physiotherapy specialist. Consequently, he manages simple and complex injuries on a daily basis, utilising evidence-based techniques and adjunct modalities including kinesio-taping, acupuncture, orthotic (insoles) prescription and injection therapy. Richard has also offered expert opinion to publications including Men’s Fitness and, wrote an excellent article on hamstring injuries for RunningPhysio, which has since been re-posted by the prestigious British Journal of Sports medicine.

Sarah qualified from the University of Liverpool in 2001 and works full-time as director and physiotherapist in the clinic, but also spends her spare time as an international presenter for the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI). Sarah is vastly experienced in the management of movement dysfunction (moving incorrectly) and core stability, which are important components for injury prevention, treatment and general health. Due to the high demand in runners for her services, as well as treating patients Sarah offers running workshops at The Physiotherapy Centre.
