Progression Physiotherapy specialises in treating musculoskeletal pain and injury.
You are our priority...
Progression Physiotherapy Ltd was created by Scott Dupuy and Kirsty McCrann and first opened in January 2007. Scott has a business and accountancy background and Kirsty is a highly experienced Chartered Physiotherapist. Back in 2006, they decided to combine their varied and specialist skills to create the practice. They wanted to escape the confines of city life and move to a more rural part of the UK to join a smaller community.
“We discovered a real need for a quality private physiotherapy service in this area,’’ says Practice Manager, Scott, ‘‘We have found Warminster to be an extremely friendly and welcoming place, and we have thoroughly enjoyed becoming part of the community here’’.
