About Swan Physio


Swan Physio is a local, modern Physiotherapy practice

Swan Physio is a local, modern Physiotherapy practice offering affordable high quality treatments in a convenient and pleasant setting.

The wellbeing of our clients is a priority and although we may ask you to continue exercises at home between treatment sessions our Philosophy is that “We will do what you cannot!” ‘Hands on’ methods are therefore an essential element of our treatment approach and when used alongside condition-specific and lifestyle advice provide a strong basis for successful outcomes.

Carys Roberts

MSC (Proprieter)

Carys Roberts is the lead Physiotherapist and founder of Swan Physio, taking the name from the local emblem of Madeley village where the clinic originally opened and where Carys grew up. A local talent, Carys graduated from Keele University in 2009 not only with first class honours but also as the winner of the cohort award for Clinical Excellence.

Since graduating, Carys has completed additional qualifications in pain management, muscle retraining, injury prevention and Acupuncture. Her special interests include Spinal Problems, Joint Problems, Chronic Pain Management, Sports Injuries, Paediatric conditions, Acute Injury Management, Headaches and Acupuncture. She completed her MSc in Physiotherapy in 2014 by conducting a research project in association with the Football Association (FA).


Carys’ first post was with Shropshire NHS where she handled both routine and complex musculoskeletal cases. Through this experience she was able to develop her skills in treating older people and complex orthopaedic rehabilitation. She later worked in a local private practice but throughout her career has worked in evenings and at weekends for Stoke City Football Club Girls Centre of Excellence. In this role she manages a team of staff to ensure the squad of young players receive the excellent care they need to succeed.

The quality of her work there has been recognised not only by Keele University for whom it is an official training placement but also by the FA. Since 2011, Carys has worked within the England Ladies Football structure to support the Elite Performance Camps and has worked at St George’s Park, the National Football Centre in Burton-on-Trent. This is a state of the art facility where all 24 England international football teams, the FA and other national sports teams/elite athletes train.

An energetic individual, Carys enjoys Hockey, Pilates and the Gym in her spare time!
