About Our Clinic

LoughShore Physiotherapy has developed through a re-branding and change of ownership from a leading and well-established practice during the Covid-19 pandemic. The LoughShore Physiotherapy clinic has had the expertise and guidance from the clinic’s previous owner and Physiotherapist Kay McLorn to begin its own journey and continue to offer its services to the area.

The clinic was established 12 years ago as the second Blackstone Physiotherapy Clinic and thrived as a clinic in the Carrickfergus area. The clinic grew and established itself as a professional and welcoming clinic for all patients with its services of Physio, Podiatry and Pilates.

The clinic from December 2020 started its re-branding phase and change of ownership to Victoria Edgar. As one of the physiotherapists working within Blackstone for the past 5 years, the transition has been seamless and has continued to provide all the services previously on offer.


What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy will aim to restore a client’s movement, function and quality of life with a comprehensive assessment and analysis of your symptoms or condition. Our Physiotherapists will always include you in creating your treatment plan and educate you on all aspects of your care and management, so you feel involved and in control of your own recovery. This will also help to facilitate you with ongoing self- management to reduce your risk or re-injury or regular reoccurrences of the same condition.

All our physiotherapists at LoughShore Physiotherapy are registered and chartered Physiotherapists, with extensive experience within Private Practice Physio. You also do not need a GP or consultant referral prior to attending for physio. However, if your assessment highlights a need for onward referral for further investigation or management, we can make this referral privately or advise on making a GP appointment or attending acute services.

The clinic is registered with all major health insurers; Bupa, AXA, H3, WPA, Cigna, Vita Health, Vitality Health, Speed Medical. If you are unsure if your insurer is registered please contact us on 02893329932.

What is Pilates?

Pilates is a total body conditioning and training method that was developed in the 20th century by Joseph Pilates. As one of his famous quotes suggest, Mr Pilates was a strong advocate of movement and exercise – “change happens through movement and movement heals”. The importance and quality of his teaching has had a lasting impression within Physiotherapy and health and fitness industries, with Pilates principles and classes still having a large part to play in maintaining general health & wellbeing and in clinical rehabilitation settings.

The fundamentals and principles of Pilates are so versatile that they can be tailored to the requirements and needs of a complete beginner struggling with pain and dysfunction to a high level athlete who is wishing to supplement high training loads and volumes with Pilates exercises for maintaining their mobility and mind-body connections.

In LoughShore Physiotherapy all of our classes are led by charted physiotherapists and certified pilates  who will be able to identify areas of concern or dysfunction and modify the exercises to your needs and capabilities, this way we can ensure that Pilates is suitable to all individuals and maximise the benefit and experience for everyone.

Pilates training will aim to

  • Improve posture
  • Strengthen, lengthen & tone muscles
  • Improve muscular endurance
  • Improve balance and co-ordination
  • Develop and encourage self-awareness and control of your body
  • Increase flexibility and mobility
  • Reduce stress & tension


‘Physical fitness can neither be achieved by wishful thinking, nor outright purchase.’ Jospeh Pilates
