Shower mixer water pressure (From combi boiler)

Over the years (7) the water pressure from our shower has dropped.
It is fed from a combi boiler.
Water pressure from hot water taps in the bathroom and kitchen seem fine.
I have cleaned the shower head, but when the hose is disconnected it seems that the water pressure issue is from the mixer itself (Low, both hot and cold).
I have taken the mixer apart form the shower side, but not seen any obvious blockage or furring.
Before getting into the back of the mixer (Requires removing part of a plasterboard wall) will I find anything to help remedy the matter when I do?
Do I just need to replace the mixer?
