Eagle House Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic is the longest established practice in the Southend, Westcliff and Leigh-on-Sea area at 42 years and consequently has enjoyed a very long and successful relationship with the local community, schools, sports clubs, all the major insurance companies, GP's and Consultants.

As a result of our continual improvement programme the clinic was completely refurbished to a very high standard in 2008. At 1700 sq ft with grounds front and back it is a large dedicated practice in a prestigious property with lovely surroundings in the heart of Westcliff/Chalkwell. The practice now has 5 treatment areas, a main reception, 2 waiting areas, 2 refreshment areas, 2 rest rooms, a beautiful shower and changing room, an area for toys to keep children occupied if accompanying parents, a large car park with allocated patient parking, and relaxing gardens which patients are welcome to use.
The main Physiotherapy Suite is very spacious and is suitable for both individual hands on treatment and rehabilitation or studio work such as Pilates. The practice is also ideal for educational purposes and is regularly used as a teaching venue.
In 2014 NCT Classes were introduced here at Eagle House. You can obtain further information by calling us or popping into reception.
The Practice Principle, Keith Palmer is a competitive dancer and competes internationally in athletics, and is a qualified UK Athletics Coach. Consequently he has specialised for nearly 15 years in Sports and Dance injuries up to elite level and is often required to lecture on sports injuries especially running and lower limb problems. Keith also specialises in Neurology, especially Stroke and Care of the Elderly where home visits can be arranged if preferred. This stems from the caring of his Father for 15 years who suffered a Stroke and subsequently Keith has undertaken much work on Stroke Awareness. Furthermore we specialise in Paediatrics and have maintained very close links with the local schools who in turn refer their pupils here and whom we have been successfully treating for many years. Keith is also qualified and specialises in Acupuncture and is AACP registered.
Our physiotherapists are registered with the CSP, HPC and OCPPP, follow exceptional care standards and are constantly updating their knowledge through CPD in order that their patients receive treatment that current research shows to be effective.
Accreditation and audit
Over the past 10 years the practice has received accreditation twice by Physio First and has been successfully audited by Bupa. In 2009 the clinic took part in the required 'Bupa Physiotherapy Tender' and were successful. Therefore the Practice continues to be a Bupa Approved Provider of Physiotherapy Services and now forms part of their 'new out-patient physiotherapy network', which was launched late in 2009.
A further part of the development programme has seen us embrace the ever increasing world of complementary therapies and we now have dedicated rooms for these treatments with fully qualified and registered complementary therapists. Treatments include Sports Massage Technique, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage and Acupuncture. All therapists at this practice are fully qualified and registered.
Expansion of the practice has seen the introduction of Beauty Therapies and Day Spa facilities in the front section of the clinic. Eagle House therefore now offer health, relaxation and beauty under one roof.
In October 2013 we introduced a Chiropody/Podiatry service here at Eagle House.
Background of the clinic
Eagle House Physiotherapy Clinic was opened by Christine Marryat in January 1976. She remained the Practice Principal until January 2006 when her long time associate Keith Palmer took over after having worked in the Practice for the previous 8 years. Complementary therapies were introduced in the summer of 2004, initally by Rosemary Cunningham but the services further developed by Tracy Cocks and Maria Zambas in 2006.
Overview of the clinic
The clinic was completely refurbished throughout in 2008 and has spacious treatment rooms which are warm, bright and well equipped. It now has a new reception leading into the main Physiotherapy suite; a very large, airy and spacious area for both treatment and rehabilitation.
