Laura Wilson Pricipal Physiotherapist/ Owner
I never really wanted to be anything else except a Physio, the human body is fascinating and getting to learn something new every day is amazing. As someone who is a little clumsy I have recovered through my fair share of injuries and completely get how frustrating it is when your injury stops you from doing what you want to do. I created Flexible Physiotherapy Sheffield as a specialist Physiotherapy Practice to help as many people as possible get rid of their pain in a non judgemental friendly environment.
