Cynon Valley AM Vikki Howells recently visited Aberdare-based Back2Front Physiotherapy to find out about their recent expansion and their future plans to help tackle local health issues and offer assistance and support to Cynon residents.
The clinic, established in 2012 by managing director Christopher Watts, is one of the top three physiotherapy clinics in Rhondda Cynon Taff and recently moved to new premises in Aberdare.
During the last six months, additional staff have been recruited including an additional physiotherapist, a holistic therapist and two part-time receptionists. The number of Pilates classes available has increased, and there is an open vacancy for another part-time physiotherapist.
Back2Front Physiotherapy has seen over 3000 patients walk through its doors, with that number set to increase rapidly with the new expansion.
After the visit, Vikki Howells AM said:-
‘I met with Christopher and his team to find out about Back2Front Physiotherapy’s recent expansion, and learn more about their plans to enhance local health provision.
‘I was impressed with the positive feedback from people who had accessed treatment and support at Back2Front Physiotherapy, all of whom enthused about the benefits to their health and well-being.’
Christopher Watts said:-
‘Following a rise in the need for additional services such as complementary therapies, fitness level measurements and return to sport physiotherapy, we made the decision to move to a larger premises, as well as employ additional staff.
‘Our aim is to bring in nutritionists and strength and conditioning coaches, so Back2Front Physiotherapy can become a holistic clinic allowing its patients to manage their health conditions effectively and efficiently, offering our services to GP surgeries throughout RCT.’
