Physiotherapy in Harrogate and Nottingham

Welcome to The Gary Fleming Practice

I am an ex professional footballer who played for 14 years with Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Barnsley and also represented Northern Ireland winning 31 caps. I then trained as a Physio and worked with Nottingham Forest FC for 10 years as their physiotherapist.

I now specialise in a treatment for chronic pain, using a treatment called Intramuscular stimulation (IMS). It can also be used to treat any acute injuries with immediate results. There are only around 15 IMS practitioners in the UK. It can help those people who have pain every day in their lives and who maybe have been told nothing else can done for them. With IMS that can change. It is widely used throughout Canada and USA.

Anyone who has IMS can immediately get relief from their pain and at last give them hope that there is a treatment that actually works and helps restore them back to normal life , free from pain.


At The Gary Fleming Practice we offer the following servcies:

  • Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS)
  • Physiotherapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Education and Advice on Prevention
  • Structured Rehabilitation programmes

Hope things are good with you - the web site looks like you're keeping very busy.

I've been meaning to drop you a line and let you know how the 'miraculous' treatment you gave me is holding up - still excellent - afraid you did such a good job no further treatment needed!

Earlier this year I completed The West Highland Way long distance walk - which was 95 miles taking me 8 days to complete (yeah OK, the 'younger' walkers can do it a 'little' quicker!) As I was very rarely able to walk further than 10-50 yards prior to my visits to you and have now enjoyed over 2 years of a lot less pain and discomfort, loads of walks in the countryside varying from 2-15 miles and back to continued work, I'm still very grateful for your skills in providing me with this rich lifestyle.

I still do Pilates exercises twice a week and can really feel the difference in the muscle tone and balance - terrific job.

Kind regards - Helen Brewerton
