Judith & Fran met whilst lecturing at Nottingham University as Lecturer in the Medical Faculty and Clinical Researcher in the Department of Orthopaedics respectively. Their shared special interest in the management of painful musculoskeletal problems (joints, muscles and ligaments) and a desire to promote the use of the latest evidence in clinical physiotherapy practice led to the opening of EMPC in February 1998.
The last 10 years has seen us grow into one of the most respected clinics in the region, lending our expertise to all our local Professional Sports Clubs, working with Leicester Tigers Rugby Football Club, Leicester City Football Club, Nottingham Forest Football Club and Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Further afield, our expertise has been exploited by Premiership Football Clubs including Liverpool F.C. Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Middlesborough F.C. as well as many lower league clubs.
We have supported the Football Association (FA) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), by invitation, with Research and Development, conducting funded projects for them, contributing to developments in Injury Prevention and Clinical Medicine Standards in Professional Sport, and worked in Partnership with several major employers with Health and Wellness at Work projects, including Walkers Snack Foods Ltd (Pepsico UK), Heinz Frozen and Chilled foods, Brush Electrical Machines, The Post Office helping with injury prevention, rehabilitation and keeping people healthy in the workplace. We also have strong working links with our colleagues in the National Health Service and local Private Hospitals.
