About us

The Practice was established by Sophie Dorkings and Samantha Firkin in June 2006. They both qualified with BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy from Hertfordshire University and St Georges Medical School, respectively.

Sophie and Sam are Chartered Physiotherapists and are members of the Health Professions Council (HPC) and Physiofirst (OCPPP) a specialist interest group for physiotherapists working in private practice. With over 10 years experience each they utilise their specialist skills to offer patients clinical excellence in all aspects of their assessment and treatment.

The reason this practice was founded was to improve patient’s experience of physiotherapy. For this reason we offer longer assessment and treatment times, and we can also offer an appointment within 48 hours of contacting the clinic eliminating the frustration commonly experienced with long waiting times.

Mission Statement
  • To provide a service of excellence using up to date evidence based practice in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.
  • To hold the care, comfort and satisfaction of all patients in the highest regard.
  • To provide a service which looks at health education and prevention of injuries and to ensure patients have the tools to remain fit and healthy in their everyday lives.
