His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire made a special visit to Salisbury on Friday, 24th February to officially open Salisbury & South Wilts Physiotherapy.
This event celebrated the growth and success of Harnham Physiotherapy Clinic over the past 10 years, culminating with the new clinic opening last September. The event was also supported by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Hoque, and President of the Salisbury & District Chamber of Commerce, Mr Daniel Rhind-Tutt.
After meeting nine members of the 12 strong team and taking a tour of the clinic facilities, Mrs Sarah Rose Troughton, said: ‘Physiotherapists are an absolutely vital part of our community and you should be so proud to have achieved what you have done and it’s obviously terrifically professional and successful. Not only is it good for Salisbury but also for Wiltshire as a whole.”
Clinic director, Marie Roberts said: “Opening the clinic was a milestone moment for the team to be very proud of and that the clinic’s top rated, five star local reputation has taken 10 years of hard work and dedication to build. This has involved an impressive expert team working consistently and at an exceptionally high level.”
The new clinic innovatively utilises off-season changing rooms at the Salisbury & South Wilts Sports Club and is a perfect symbiotic relationship benefiting both parties. The community rehabilitation team continues to operate as “Harnham Physiotherapy Community Rehabilitation” assisting those who cannot make it to the clinic, at home or in various care settings.
The clinic also has strong ongoing relationships with local care homes and provides regular exercise classes for Wessex Care (Holmwood, Little Manor, Kimberly East & West), Barchester (Wilton Place and Milford House) and Harnham Croft. The team also provides exercise classes for Olivier Place in Wilton supporting independent living.
With 11 diverse practitioners, the clinic is the largest and most diverse private physiotherapy team in Salisbury offering a wide range of services including:
● Musculoskeletal physiotherapy;
● Neurological physiotherapy;
● Respiratory physiotherapy;
● Hand therapy;
● Community rehabilitation;
● Functional rehabilitation;

● Orthopaedic rehabilitation;
● Oncology rehabilitation;
● Treatments for dizziness.
They also provide health promoting talks in various settings and free health promoting self help publications e.g. chair based exercises for older people, and a posture guide for schools and businesses.
Clients come from far and wide for some of the more specialist services.
