Welcome to the NeuroMuscular Centre (NMC) Physiotherapy page. The centre is based in Winsford, Cheshire and has a team of specialist neuromuscular physiotherapists that provide assessment, treatment and advice for people with muscular dystrophy
This service can provide ongoing care determined by clinical need. It is free to all users but we do seek funding from Clinical Commissioning Groups or Healthboards.
NMC Physiotherapy has strong links with regional neuromuscular clinics at Owestry, The Walton Centre, Royal Preston, Newcastle, London Centre for Neuromuscular Disease and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. We also have links with regional respiratory clinics.
Referrals are accepted from consultants and GPs and we just ask people make thir own travel arrangements.
We carry out detailed assessments of everyone referred to our physiotherapy service, so that we can target the individual's main problems and deal with the areas that cause them most concern. As a result, we are able to provide relevant, helpful advice and information and give people an individual treatment programme suited to their own needs.
We are also able to monitor the effectiveness of our treatment by setting goals at the assessment and we will send a detailed report to you, your GP, consultant and any other relevant healthcare professional with your permission.
