Unique physiotherapy clinics in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Leiston

A one stop clinic for all your treatments

Neil Liffen, ECP Director


Neil Liffen, Clinical Director of East Coast Physio Ltd (ECP), is an Extended Scope Practitioner in Physiotherapy and a Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Sonographer. He has >15 years experience working within the NHS and private practice. At ECP we specialise in:

> Musculoskeletal physiotherapy

> Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound

> Guided injections

> Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

Neil’s drive has been to ensure the correct client diagnosis from the outset with early use of diagnostic ultrasound, when clinically indicated, to complement his physical examination. Thus, improving the client injury diagnosis, allows for targeted treatment and/or management. Now, Neil performs >5000 diagnostic ultrasound examinations per year for NHS radiology departments and private organizations. He performs these examinations on behalf of orthopedic consultants, podiatry surgeons, rheumatologists, GP’s and other healthcare professional referrals. A commitment, where Neil travels to various hospitals around the country.

One stop clinic

At ECP, Neil combines his experience and specialism of diagnostic ultrasound with providing specialist physiotherapy treatment, including innovative treatment using Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy. In addition, Neil performs >1200 corticosteroid injections (non-guided and ultrasound guided injections) per year, both in the NHS and private setting. Therefore, ECP for some clients is a ‘one stop clinic’, but for others is ongoing specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

Self referrals are available by contacting ECP direct or via consultants/GP or private insurance. I hope you find the website informative and gives you an insight regarding our services, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact ECP. Thank you for visiting.
