Diss physiotherapist launches new clinic
A new physiotherapy service has launched in Diss.
Dr Katy Mitchell launched Fair Green Physio this month which she hopes will fill a need for a community-based service in the area.
The company was launched at Diss Cyclathon last month, when Dr Mitchell gave massages to around 20 cyclists free of charge on the day.
Her new clinic, in Denmark Street, offers a range of therapy for musculoskeletal injuries and conditions such as sports injuries, back pain and sciatica, neck pain, tendinopathy, arthritis, overuse injuries, knee pain, hip pain and shoulder pain.
“I’m also hoping to link up with sports groups to give talks on injury prevention, with the approach that prevention is better than cure,” said Katy.
Katy trained in physiotherapy at Coventry University and qualified with first class honours in 2006.
She worked in a private practice in Cambridgeshire, before joining the NHS while studying for her PhD, and has since been working with complex injuries in military personnel for the Ministry of Defence.
“My practice isn’t focused on becoming corporate and making lots of money,” said Katy.
“Fair Green Physiotherapy provides real help to people in the local community of Diss and surrounding areas. I want to make peoples’ lives better. I want them to achieve their goals, feel fitter, healthier and to achieve things they didn’t think they could.
“I want to help people get better at their sport, be able to move without pain, spend time with their family and be able to do all the activities they want to do.”
