We are a team of experienced Chartered Physiotherapists who specialise in the assessment, treatment and prevention of a wide range of musculoskeletal problems.

Our team, consisting of Carol Forrest and Iain Briggs, are able to offer you appointments at our clinic that is located in Hest Bank, Lancaster. You can find more details about our team using the team link and more about our Clinic using the location link.

The musculoskeletal system is comprised of the joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and the nerves that drive them. When the harmony of this system is disturbed through poor posture, overuse, injury or disease the fine balance can be disturbed and result in pain, stiffness and poor function.

Following a thorough assessment, we can help to relieve your symptoms and restore the system to a more normal function using a variety of treatments that include education about the problem, massage, mobilisation, manipulation, electrotherapy and exercise. We are also able to integrate acupuncture and injection therapy alongside our more traditional therapies.

If you have a problem with:- headaches, neck or back pain, brachalgia or sciatica, strains, sprains and bruises, sport related injuries, overuse injuries, arthritis and rheumatism, post-fracture stiffness or poor function following joint replacement..

We can help – no problem!

At Hest Bank Physiotherapy Clinic we are comitted to providing you with information about your injuries and conditions so that you can help yourself to manage your symptoms.
