About

Hi! My name is Fiona Higgs and I am the owner of Move Well Clinic. I am here to help you be free of pain and injury issues.

In the clinic I can offer you an initial assessment – this allows me to investigate the cause of your pain and injury. I use this information to provide you with an individually tailored treatment programme. The treatments I offer usually combine a range of therapeutic methods – including soft tissue therapy – such as sports massage, joint mobilisations, as well as exercise prescription.

Common problems treated in the clinic include:
  • shoulder movement restrictions
  • upper and lower backache
  • neck pain/stiffness
  • hip, knee and/or ankle pain
  • joint soreness/stiffness
  • elbow and wrist problems
  • muscle tension

My clinical training and research experience has equipped me with the skills and knowledge to assess and treat symptoms using the most up-to-date evidence-informed techniques. I aim to reduce pain symptoms and improve quality of movement for all my clients.
