Marie Colyer MSc MCSP
Graduated with Diploma in Physiotherapy in 1991 from Otago School of Physiotherapy, New Zealand. Graduated with MSc in Physiotherapy in 2003 from Manchester School of Physiotherapy, UK.
Marie set up Bentham Physiotherapy Clinic in 1998, since then she has focused on musculoskeletal physiotherapy seeing everything from acute whiplash to chronic low back pain. Marie has been practicing acupuncture since 1996, finding it a very effective adjunct to her other treatment techniques. Her MSc was invaluable covering modules of pain management, biomechanics, orthopaedic assessment and treatment of the spine and periphery, as well as research methodology, which has all contributed to her physiotherapy philosophy.
Marie’s philosophy is to offer a complete physiotherapy package from a thorough initial assessment and diagnosis through to evidence based treatment including hands on as necessary, complimented by advice and normally an individualised home exercise programme targeting problem areas, until the patient is back to optimal fitness. She firmly believes that education of the patient is the best way to prevent recurrence and always includes self treatment techniques as part of each programme.
Marie works closely with local GP surgeries receiving referrals from Bentham, Kirkby Lonsdale, and Settle Surgeries.
Marie is a registered provider for most health insurance companies including BUPA, AXA, AVIVA and Nuffield Health please check the details of your policy before your first appointment.
Marie also accepts referrals from many intermediary companies following whiplash injuries.
She is registered with the Health Professions Council, The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, and Physiofirst.
