About Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical conditions such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.

Specific and tailored treatments
Often patients will need to take an active part in their rehabilitation programmes following advice on work, posture, ergonomics and personal training activities. Specific and tailored treatment programmes can be developed to help you meet your short and long term goals.

What will happen when I see a physiotherapist?

Your first session of physiotherapy will include a detailed assessment. Everything you tell the physiotherapist will be kept completely confidential. They may ask you questions about your:

  • current symptoms, including pain
  • medical history
  • health, fitness levels and lifestyle

Tom or Katie will then assess how your joints are working and how this problem is affecting your life. They will check your posture, watch how you move and check your strength.

What will happen when I see a physiotherapist (continued)…

They may ask you to remove some clothing so that he can have a look at and feel your joints more easily. It’s a good idea to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing to your appointment.

At this first appointment you will both discuss achievable goals, treatment and a suitable management program for you.

They will then arrange any follow up appointments, and work closely with any other healthcare professionals who are involved with your treatment.



My profession is Motocross, and with the nature of my sport, unfortunately comes many injuries. The past 2012 season I was introduced to The Abbeyfields Clinic by a recommendation from a fellow competitor as Id had a crash and separated my collarbone. What looked like a season stopper, was soon rectified, with some great treatment and intense rehab with James Woledge. I was back training and racing again just 4 weeks later in full physical condition. I have since used the Abbeyfields Clinic on a regular basis to treat all general aches and pains to prevent them leading to potential injuries. With an Osteopath, Physiotherapist, both Sports, and Deep Tissue Massage available, I have everything under one roof.

Id like to thank The Abbeyfields Clinic for keeping me healthy on the bike with fast and friendly treatment!
