A physiotherapy provider is marking its eighth year in business with a move to new headquarters to accommodate the growing team.

Physiotherapy Matters Limited is expanding into the Regent Centre in Gosforth, Newcastle, new premises that double the therapy space at its original site at nearby Melton Park.

Managing director Neeraj Nayyar said the move will help the company to grow its customer base, allowing it to offer its services to more people with musculoskeletal and work-related occupational health problems.

As part of the expansion, Physiotherapy Matters is taking on two new physiotherapists and a business manager, taking staff count to 12.

In addition, the company will maintain its other outreach clinics in Newcastle city centre and Darras Hall in Ponteland.

The growing company was established in 2006 by practitioner Neeraj Nayyar, after spending several years as an academy physiotherapist at Newcastle United alongside Hartlepool and North Tees NHS trust, as well as time at the renowned Nuffield Hospital in Jesmond.

In recent years, the company has also grown its on and offsite occupational health physiotherapy division, which has seen it help large companies including Virgin Money, Newcastle International Airport and DB Region Tyne and Wear Limited.

Mr Nayyar said: “This is a very exciting time for our organisation, our team and of course our loyal customers.

“The new site at Regent Centre offers fantastic transport links and additional space that will hugely benefit our occupational health and private clients.

“Over the years, we have built up a solid reputation for helping office workers with a range of postural, manual handling and repetitive strain injuries, people suffering from a chronic degenerative problems to sports injuries.

“With this additional capacity, we’ve also been able to create new jobs at the practice, which will allow us to take on and assist even more patients in and around Newcastle.”

To coincide with the opening of its new practice, the company is planning a week-long launch event that will involve free 15-minute consultations and guidance on keeping healthy and active, including advice on preventing and managing sports injuries and work related occupational health problems.

The launch week starts on Monday November 24.
