About Us

VCF Physiotherapy and Sports Injury clinic was founded by Vivienne Fort in January 2003. VCF Physiotherapy is a private physiotherapy practice based in Dunsberry, in Bretton, Peterborough that specialises in musculoskeletal problems and sports Injuries. The practice consists of four chartered and HPC registered physiotherapists. At VCF Physiotherapy we uphold the highest standards of care and professionalism. We strive towards resolving musculoskeletal conditions, preventing reoccurrence and reducing pain in all of our patients. We build aspects of health, fitness and lifestyle into our treatments and always provide education to patients on self management techniques if they require it.

Our physiotherapists run occupational physiotherapy clinics at Tata Steel, Sense and Peterborough College (see details on the right).

What is physiotherapy?

Just a brief overview

“Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status”

- The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Curriculum Framework (January 2002)

Physiotherapists view movement as central to health and well being. Physiotherapists identify and make the most of movement ability by health promotion, pre-screening and preventive advice, ergonomic intervention, treatment and rehabilitation. Core skills used by physiotherapists include manual therapy, acupuncture, electrotherapy, ergonomics and therapeutic exercise.
