Leys Farm is a working farm and more details can be found here http://www.parkphysiotherapy.co.uk/barns/. Over the years the practice has grown from strength to strength “I have concentrated on developing a practice which provides high quality physiotherapy treatment using experienced physiotherapists who are specialists in their field.”

Elizabeth’s special interest is in musculoskeletal problems and has concentrated on developing this area of her practice over the last 20 years. She recently completed a Masters degree in Advanced Musculoskeletal Research and Practice at UEA with her final dissertation on physiotherapy treatment of cervicogenic headaches.
