Welcome to Mobility Physiotherapy

Emma McCabe BSC (HONS) MCSP Physiotherapist

Mobility physiotherapy provides excellent, affordable physiotherapy to suit you. I offer clinic appointments in York, I can visit you within your home; or a video consultation, if that suits you better.

I have over 12 years experience of working with Musculoskeletal issues and use a whole body approach to diagnose and treat. I specialise in POTS and hyper-mobility disorders and use my Pilates qualifications to reduce pain and improve function. I work with patients to rehabilitate following an operation or a stay in hospital. See what I treat for more information.

All appropriate guidelines with be adhered to, including PPE, hand washing and reduced contact. Please CLICK HERE for more information.

What type of treatments does Physiotherapy involve?

All Physiotherapists work differently.  I use my skills in Pilates and rehabilitation to ensure that the correct muscles are working and doing the job they’re designed to do.  I use manual techniques to manipulate and mobilise joints and muscles.  Why? Sometimes joints can become stiff and therefore reduce movement, causing pain and dysfunction.  I also use a variety of massage techniques to reduce swelling, pain and increase range of movement.  In addition to this I am qualified in dry needling, which is similar to Acupunture but is only used to treat tension in muscles ‘trigger points’ which are tight spots in muscles.  They can be painful and cause dysfunction in the muscles.

If you would like further information on any of these techniques, just ask.  All potential treatments are discussed with you and we find one that you’re happy with.

In a relatively short time, Emma’s targeted exercises have helped strengthen and stabilize my core, spine and other joints, which has in turn reduced the associated pain and muscle spasms. I can now do more aerobic exercise which has hugely improved my quality of life”
