Services

Physiotherapy + -

Physiotherapy treats injuries and conditions by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. A wide variety of techniques are used to help muscles, joints, nerves and other soft tissues work harmoniously and to their full potential.

Our physiotherapists use a wide range of skills including mobilisation, manipulation, massage, exercises and dry needling – designed to help restore function, relieve pain and aid healing.

Our physiotherapists undertake a thorough assessment of each problem. This will involve a full case history and examination usually lasting between 45 and 60 minutes. This, together with an understanding of your work, rest and recreational activities, will help identify your problem(s), which in some circumstances may be situated some distance from where the pain is felt. It also ensures that the diagnosis and treatment will relate to you and your lifestyle. After a full consultation the best form of treatment will be determined. Preventative measures are very important in physiotherapy. We will spend time teaching you how to avoid recurrence of your problem.

Follow-up treatment sessions will normally last between 30 and 45 minutes.

Osteopathy + -

Osteopathy is a distinct, body-wide approach to treating pain and physical problems. It is primarily, but not exclusively, a hands-on manipulative therapy aimed at releasing tensions, compressions and distortions of the body, be it joints, muscles, ligaments, fascia or any combination of these.

An osteopath looks to assess everyone that comes to them in a unique way, considering your presenting issue, your medical and physical injury histories, lifestyle and work demands, and your expectations, hopes and beliefs. Put simply, anything that might help provide tailored, effective and lasting treatment and advice.

The range of treatment styles offered include gentle mobilisation, massage, manipulation, dry needling, maintenance and rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle advice.

Neurological Physiotherapy + -

Neurological physiotherapy is the treatment of patients with a disorder affecting the brain or spinal cord. Commonly treated conditions include stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, head injury and spinal cord injury.

In conditions, such as stroke, access to neurological physiotherapy can allow you to continue improvement. In progressive conditions such as MS there are many gains that can be made with neurological physiotherapy to help maximise your abilities and minimise secondary complications.

At your first appointment we will carry out a detailed assessment of your physical problems and a treatment plan will be decided with you according to your aims. Our neurological physiotherapists have extensive NHS experience and knowledge of local services and are happy to liaise with your NHS professionals in order to ensure good communication regarding your care.

Treatment may include:

– Hands-on physical treatment including movement facilitation
– Advice on management of muscle tone and spasticity
– Establishing a specific home exercise programme targeting identified problem areas
– Advice on, and provision of equipment, including walking aids and orthotics
– Referral to other specialities as required
– Support with a gym or swimming programme
– Assessment for functional electrical stimulation
– Advice on the use of equipment, including walking aids and orthotics
– Practice of functional activities, e.g. getting into and out of a car

Parkinson's Classes + -

We run individual and group exercise sessions for people with Parkinson’s. These popular and friendly classes are evidence based and delivered by our specialist neurological physiotherapists.

PD Defence
A circuit based exercise class for people with mild to moderate Parkinson’s focusing on speed and amplitude of movement, balance, strength and walking in a fun and supportive environment. Participants need to be independently mobile.

PD Attack
Aimed at people recently diagnosed or with very mild symptoms of Parkinson’s. This high energy class is based on the most recent evidence and includes specific exercises to slow progression of symptoms. Participants need to be fairly fit and active.

All classes require an individual assessment prior to joining a class to ensure that it is appropriate, safe and tailored specifically to their needs.

Soft Tissue Therapy + -

Sports massage is one form of soft tissue therapy. Soft tissue therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, i.e. muscles, connective tissue/fascia, tendons, ligaments and joints. Soft tissue therapy helps alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, soft tissue therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.

Your body is 70% soft tissue; We specialise in injuries, whether they are the result of everyday activities or from competing (at any level). At times the treatment can be tender due to the therapist needing to work through the superficial tissues into the deeper structures to locate the underlying cause of the pain or tension.

Soft tissue therapy benefits include increased mobility and flexibility of muscle tissue, increased feeling of well-being, relief from tension and stress, correction of muscular imbalances and decreased risk of injury.

Functional Rehabilitation + -

At The Bosworth Clinic, we believe that restoring optimal function is the most important component in eliminating pain and preventing injury. An injury will usually occur after the body has undergone an undue trauma, incorrect movement or a repetitive stress. It is important to understand the entire body needs to move through a full range of motion.

After functional movement has been assessed, a proper diagnosis can be made and an exercise programme specific to your needs and ability can be created. This specialised exercise programme is designed to re-establish proper strength in specific muscles and appropriate flexibility in others. Establishing proper joint motion allows us to actually teach people how to move correctly and thereby prevent injury. It is important that the body is exercised in a functional manner in order to build appropriate muscle as well as joint strength and flexibility. This ensures that the nervous system is working properly and using all parts of the body in the appropriate manner with the correct muscles firing at the right time. Your exercise routine is progressively adjusted to meet your evolving needs and condition.

Strength & Conditioning + -

Strength training is not just about building muscle size, rather developing a skill to improve physical performance. Our services include fitness assessment and monitoring, personalised training programmes, instructor led rehabilitation and training for events or activities. This includes plyometrics, speed and agility, endurance and core stability training.

Nutrition + -

Nutritionists provide evidence-based information and guidance about the impacts of food and nutrition on health and well-being. Sports nutrition is the implementation and evaluation of nutritional strategies to optimise performance and reduce risk of injury. Nutrition also plays an important role in injury rehabilitation.

At The Bosworth Clinic we offer nutritional advice tailored to your needs and targets. Initial consultations last 90 minutes, your current diet is assessed and targets are discussed. Advice is then given on diet and eating patterns to achieve these targets.
Follow-up consultations last between 45 and 60 minutes where progress is assessed, changes are made where necessary and ongoing support is provided. Bespoke diet plans are available and are tailored to your targets, be it weight loss, healthy eating, training or carb loading.

Full diet analysis is also available, where you provide a diet diary which is analysed and a report produced, showing protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin and mineral intake, together with recommended changes to diet.

Pilates + -

Devised by German-born Joseph Pilates in the 1920s, Pilates is a total mind–body conditioning exercise programme based around creating a stable core by activating deep abdominal and spinal muscles. This assists good posture and efficient control of movement.

Pilates aims to lengthen and strengthen your muscles using slow, precise, accurate and flowing movements to restore normal movement, alignment and balance. This helps the body to avoid over-using some muscle groups which then become tight and can lead to restriction and injury. Correct movement patterns lead to a feeling of mobility and flexibility.

Pilates can be taught at all levels from complete beginner to advanced. It is ideal for people returning to exercise after a long break or taking it up for the first time, right through to elite athletes and ballet dancers.

But perhaps Pilates’ greatest strength is its ability to help people with back pain, before or after childbirth, with hip or shoulder problems, with poor posture or occupational pain.
