About Us

Platts Physiotherapy

At Platts Physiotherapy we specialise in maintaining the health of the musculoskeletal system. We are a professional and friendly clinic, we realise that when you initially come to see us you are likely to be in pain, empathy and professional treatment is what you need at this stage, and this is what we do. John Platts is the practice principle. After qualifying in 1995 at Northumbria University John opened the first clinic in Sedgefield in 2001, Bishop Auckland in 2002 and more recently Belmont Physiotherapy Practice in April 2016. Our aim is simple, continual learning with a motivation to be the best and offer a service to every person that is unique to them. “Whether you are an elite athlete or someone with a sedentary working life we will strive to give you the best diagnosis, treatment and results we can”. This core aim has meant that our established clinics have developed through happy clients recommending us to their friends and family and we hope our newer Belmont clinic will do the same.

Our Clinical Team

We all work between each of the clinics, this offers variety of treatment styles to our clients and helps us maintain our individual clinical development skills, at times you may be asked if you would mind two of us in the treatment room together, if we have found a particular treatment technique that has worked well we like to share it with each other.
