What We Treat…

IMPORTANT

Covid-19 Update

We are pleased to announce that we are now OPEN for face to face consultations.

Public Health England and the CSP are strongly encouraging us to continue to use a virtual approach where possible and appropriate however we can carry out face to face appointments after a discussion of the risks associated with this type of appointment. Factors that might determine whether or not a face to face appointment is appropriate would include whether or not you are in a high risk group or if anyone you live with is. We have closed our online booking system for now as all patients booking an appointment will need to be assessed via telephone triage. If you would like an appointment, please call the clinic and leave a message. We will return your call to conduct the initial telephone health screen and the most appropriate form of consultation will be booked for you. We will email you a consent form before attending a face to face appointment. It is essential that this is completed and returned to us as failure to consent will mean that we are unable to conduct the appointment.
To ensure the safety of our patients, we have prepared the clinic and made changes to our working practices in accordance with Public Health England regulations, so that we can offer face to face consultations. It is important that you read the patient journey before attending the clinic as the regulations include increased hygiene methods, the wearing of PPE and trying to ensure social distancing as much as is feasible.
We are opening gradually with shorter hours and reduced services with increased Health and Safety measures, but will expanding our services as PHE guidelines allow.

Initial Assessment

We will analyse your movement and pain levels. Following assessment, you will be given a diagnosis and an individualised plan for your treatment over a specified time scale which might include joint mobilisation, soft tissue work, stretches and exercises to improve your strength.

We will always listen to your goals and tailor your treatment to meet them whether that be returning to walking again after an operation or returning to high level sport following an injury.

Testimonials

What They Say

"Claire is a warm and friendly professional. She has created an excellent facility in Bampton that is pleasant to visit. Her advice is sound and obviously comes with experience; she is encouraging and patient. Highly recommended!"

"Claire is an expert physiotherapist and comes highly recommended. She rapidly diagnosed the root cause of my reoccurring injuries, explained everything to me clearly and concisely, and treated the problem so it was resolved far quicker than I had dared hope. Now injury and pain free, which is wonderful!"

"I can really recommend Claire, excellent running form/technique advice and it works!"

"A brief note to thank you for all the help you gave me in the physiotherapy sessions with my shoulder - most effective, and I am very grateful"

"I had a back spasm whilst gardening. I called Claire on the Thursday as a first time patient, and she was able to see me that evening, which was fantastic. She assessed me that evening and then started working on removing the pain straight away. After two sessions, it was significantly better, and with exercises Claire set, by three sessions was virtually back to normal. She has an excellent manner, explains everything fully, and is very knowledgeable about how to resolve (and avoid future) injuries, particular useful for me as a golfer. Would recommend her highly"
