Specialist physiotherapy clinics in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe and Leiston

A one stop clinic for all your needs


To East Coast Physio Ltd (ECP), I am Neil Liffen, Director, and an Extended Scope Practitioner in Physiotherapy and a Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Sonographer. Here, at ECP we specialise in diagnosis and treatment of injury, ranging from your to simple to complex injury. The cornerstone of ECP services include:

> Diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound

> Musculoskeletal physiotherapy

> Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy

> Guided injections

Clients can self-refer by contacting ECP direct or via consultant, GP or private healthcare insurance provider.

ECP offer a unique service to clients requiring a specific diagnosis for soft tissue and joint injury, using diagnostic ultrasound for acute and chronic pain. Neil Liffen, has the option of using diagnostic ultrasound in combination physical examination at your initial consultation, when clinically indicated. Thus, improving diagnosis, saving the client time, and improving the clinician’s chances of targeted and effective injury treatment and/or management. ECP clients have various options of physiotherapy treatment.

Why is ECP unique?

Chronic longstanding painful conditions, particularly soft tissue injury, such as plantar fasciitis, tennis and golfers elbow, Patella and Achilles tendinitis/tendinopathy can be treated with innovative treatment using Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy. In rare cases, which do not respond to conservative management, ECP offers ultrasound guided Ostenil and corticosteroid injections. Therefore, for some clients’ ECP is a ‘one stop clinic’, but for others is ongoing specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

One stop clinic

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.
