End of an era for Rossendale Physiotherapy

After 30 years of providing specialist treatment to patients, Rossendale Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinic will be closing its doors this month.

Sarah McGrail established the Rossendale Physiotherapy and Sports Injuries Clinic in 1989 and has provided private treatment and relief for thousands of patients over the years.

Sarah and her team moved to the current Bacup Road premises in Rawtenstall in 2010 where she expanded her practice to include the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal conditions.

Sarah qualified in 1984 and, after gaining experience in the NHS, she found that her own experiences in rowing drew her to the specialist interests of sports medicine.

Over the years Sarah has maintained close links with sport working at the highest level for over 17 years on the British Olympic Physiotherapy Committee. Sarah’s skills have benefitted countless people – from international athletes to Saturday park joggers, ballet dancers to painter and decorators – working with children right through to pensioners.

Sarah, a well-known member of the Rossendale business community, said the time has come to close the business.

She said: “I have recently relocated to Yorkshire and it is with sadness that I bid farewell to all my lovely patients and the friendly folk of Rossendale.

“I would like to thank each and every person who has supported me along my journey and all of the clients who have chosen Rossendale Physiotherapy.”

“The Rossendale Valley has been my home for three decades and I will remember my time here with fondness.”

Sarah will close the doors on Friday 22 January and will concentrate on her new physiotherapy clinic in the village of Thorner near Leeds.

She added: “If anyone needs any advice or think they would benefit from a virtual consultation during these difficult times then please do not hesitate to email me at physiointhorner@btinternet.com
