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.
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.
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 don’t just want to fix injuries, we want to get you back to doing what you were before your injury or operation. With our in-house rehabilitation gym and our experienced therapists, we are able to create personalised rehabilitation programmes for our clients. Our team of experts will work with you to ensure they create the safest and most effective rehabilitation programme for your individual needs. We will also provide ongoing support to help you to not only get back to peak fitness but to remain at peak fitness.
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.
