We hold a number of different group classes at the clinic to both support our clients in their rehabilitation and recovery and also to work on prevention of future injuries. The main classes we run are our Clinical Pilates which is run by an experienced Physiotherapist.
Pilates can help to improve flexibility, strength and body awareness. It is beneficial to those who suffer with chronic (long-term) pain, those recovering from injury and those who wish to build or maintain good levels of strength and flexibility. With small class sizes, our Physiotherapists can identify individual needs and ability and adapt the exercises accordingly. Private one-to-one classes are also available.
Osteopathy is a type of alternative therapy that is based on the physical manipulation of muscles and bones. Osteopathy can be effective in treating a wide range of conditions from back pain to headaches. All of our Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
Sports Massage Therapy, also known as Deep Tissue Massage is used for a number of reasons. It can be used reactively to help soothe sore aching muscles and joints from overuse or injury or after a sporting event. It can also be used to maintain supple muscles and joints, helping to prevent future injury. See our Sports Physiotherapy Page for more information on the Services we offer relating to sport.

A number of our Physiotherapists are qualified in Acupuncture. It is a great addition to the range of skills our Physiotherapists have in their repertoire. Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into specific parts of the body. It can be extremely effective in treating a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions (of the bones and muscles) including chronic pain (such as neck pain), joint pain and post-operative pain. All of our Physiotherapists that provide Acupuncture are registered with AACP.
We now carry out Video Motion Analysis within our rehabilitation Gym. The aim is to provide runners with expertly analysed video footage of themselves running, which could identify weakness in running style or posture that could potentially cause pain or injury. It therefore can be used as a proactive or reactive approach to injury management.
Although anyone can have video anaylsis carried out, it is particularly useful for runners with persistent injuries, those training for a long distance race or those who have just started out.
Deep Oscillation (Electro-static wave therapy) is a safe and very effective therapy for a wide range of ailments, injury or Arthritis. It can be used on the same day of injury to stimulate the healing process, reduce pain and reduce swelling/bruising. Inflammation is significantly reduced even after the first session and flexibility increased, making this treatment a good choice for Arthritis sufferers. Deep Oscillation stimulates collagen production therefore making this treatment ideal for ligament injuries due to their limited blood supply. There are no side effects with Deep Oscillation and it is also non- heating so it's safe to use with metal implants/pins.
