What our clients say

7 sessions with Chris over 4 months and I am now completely pain free for the first time in years. I’m now back to strength training and enjoying doing martial arts again. After years of near constant pain I still catch myself flinching every now and again expecting a huge jolt of nerve pain from my lower back, and being pleasantly surprised when it doesn’t occur.

I've already recommended several people to Physio7 because they are that good. Chris manages to fuel my belief in my body and offers the treatment my body needs to achieve the things I want to achieve. He always shows a genuine interest, he puts my mind at rest when he shares his knowledge around injuries, and he always follows my events and contacts me after they have finished to offer feedback on the results. He is a mentor, not just a physio.

Hi, I'm Chris Spurling

Chartered Physiotherapist and Founder of Physio7


  • 20+ years experience treating musculoskeletal pains and sports injuries
  • ‘Master of Manual Therapy’ from the world renowned University of Western Australia
  • Trusted by all major insurers, international athletes and weekend warriors alike
Chris Spurling is the founder of Physio7. He qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from Manchester University and learned his trade as a physio in the Manchester area, treating clients from the NHS, private practice, employee health schemes and Sale Harriers Athletics Club.

In 2005 Chris became a Master of Manual Therapy at the renowned University of Western Australia. The Masters course emphasises the importance of excellent examination skills and advanced handling, mobilisation and manipulation skills. Soon after, he moved to Ipswich and set up Physio7, to offer high quality physiotherapy to the local community.

Chris is passionate about running. He has transformed himself from a National League triple jumper who hated training distances over 100 metres to a sub 3 hour marathoner. In 2012 Chris completed 7 marathons in 7 days for the charity EACH. He has also completed several ultramarathons, including the Stour Valley 100km, the Thames Path 100 miler and the Kennet and Avon Canal Race, 145 miles from Bristol to London…..although that did take him over 34 hours!

Chris is a member of several professional bodies, including the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapists), the AACP (Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiothreapists) and Physio First (for physios in private practice).

Injuries can be painful, debilitating and extremely frustrating. I understand this completely from my own running experiences and a historic back pain problem; I’m afraid that even physiotherapists are not immune to the odd ache, pain or niggle!

Overcoming those injuries can be a complex job, especially when you have been suffering for months or years. They are usually a combination of weakness, stiffness, tightness, poor movement patterns and postures, sub-optimal training practices, and sometimes some misunderstandings about your body or the nature of your injury.

The first stage is to identify and treat the sensitive tissues, to get you out of pain and able to function again. I think of this as treating the ‘urgent’.

Next is a more in depth look at those underlying problems, to help prevent further injuries and allow you to perform at your best. This might involve mobilising tight joints, releasing and stretching tight soft tissues, showing you how to strengthen your weak areas, or correcting sub-optimal movement patterns, postures, training practices or mindsets. I think of this as treating the ‘important’.

To make sure that this important work gets done, I devised a unique 7-step treatment system that borrows from some of the best minds in physiotherapy, osteopathy, soft tissue therapies and psychology.

If you’re like me, you won’t want to simply cope with your aches and pains, you’ll want to overcome them and thrive.
