About Showler Physiotherapy

Showler Physiotherapy was founded in 1997 and now has three clinics. Our Derby Physiotherapy clinic offers a selection of specialist physio services including treatment for knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain as well as sports injuries.

Prior to visiting Showler Physiotherapy, often patients were hoping that time will naturally alleviate their discomfort. However, when the pain persists, becoming more chronic, questions about future health arise. Have you ever found yourself asking the following questions:

  • "Why am I experiencing this pain?"

  • "Will this pain be a permanent fixture in my life?"

  • "What steps can I take to recover?"

We understand that waiting weeks for an appointment with a GP, only to be advised to rest, take pain relief, or accept it as an age-related condition, isn't the answer. Furthermore, we understand that when your passion for running, going to the gym etc is stopped from persistent pain, it can seriously impact your mood..

Before discovering Showler Physiotherapy many of our patients began with perhaps apprehension, uncertainty, and skepticism regarding physiotherapy. This skepticism often stems from a prior negative experience with other physiotherapists.

Does this resonate with you? If it does, you're not alone. Here are some avenues our patients frequently explore before seeking our guidance:

  • Enduring prolonged waits (even months) to see a GP, NHS physiotherapist, or surgeon

  • Attending repeated GP visits without a clear diagnosis or signs of improvement

  • Experimenting with pain relief and rest 

  • Attempting exercises from online sources or friends and family, perhaps providing some short-term relief

  • Exploring temporary solutions like massages, acupuncture, and other treatments, with pain returning shortly after

  • Investing in new mattresses or office chairs, seeing negligible impact on pain levels

The trouble with all of these solutions is; without finding out the root cause of your specific problem, you won’t see the long term benefits. If you have tried any of these things and are tired of not getting better then we would love to hear your story.
