Chellos

Metro Physio has played a part in keeping some of the city’s top performers at their best. Having treated various actors and actresses as well as providing physiotherapy for clients such as Chetham’s School of Music, Royal Northern College and many travelling productions.

Chetham’s School Of Music – With over 290 students ‘Chets’ as it is fondly known, is the largest specialist music school in the UK and the only music school based in the North of England. Chets is housed in buildings that are rich in history, indeed Chets boasts the oldest library in the English speaking world. The reputation of Chets is one which attracts students from all over the world and many of the tutors are principal players in the city’s leading orchestras. Many of the students go on to become professional musicians and actors with some notable Alumni including Max Beesley, Mike Lindup of Level 42, opera tenor Jon Christos and Izzy Johnston of Escala.

Metro Physio provided onsite care for both students and teachers at Chets for over 7 years. This benefits the students not only by ensuring they recovery from musician injuries as soon as possible but also from preventing them from taking minimal time off from practise. The therapist works closely with the music teachers to address practise timings, warm up and cool down prior to performance and to address any biomechanical or postural abnormalities that may have been detected.

Chetham School of Music

With our huge responsibility for the development of the young, growing musicians the partnership with Metro Physio has been invaluable here at Chetham’s. The support, advice and very often merely the peace of mind that their caring work provides for our students has been a vitally integral part of our welfare programme. Thank you Metro Physio for all that you do for us.
