Physiotherapy

Anyone experiencing pain and/or physical limitation can benefit from physiotherapy.

We help people who lead sedentary lifestyles through to elite athletes competing for their country.​

We combine a hands on approach with specific exercise rehabilitation to help you recover faster.

What Do You Treat?

We treat all types of muscle, nerve and joint pain including (but not limited to):

  • Back pain e.g. sciatica, prolapsed (slipped) discs, degenerative changes

  • Neck pain e.g whiplash, trapped nerves

  • Sports injuries e.g sprained ankle, muscle tears, achilles tendon issues

  • Arthritic conditions

  • Post operative rehabilitation e.g. after knee/hip replacement or ligament reconstruction

If you are unsure if we can help you, please call 01923 283845 to discuss.

At Chiltern Physiotherapy we love to help people in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond get back to living the life they deserve. A life that is not limited by pain and poor mobility. A life where you can do all the things you love without the fear of pain holding you back.

We meet so many people who live with the burden of nagging back pain, stiff and painful neck and shoulders, and creaky painful knees hoping that it will just ‘go away in time’ (which is rarely the case), or that it’s ‘to be expected with age’, which is just NOT true!  

 

By ignoring your pain, you prolong your suffering and the problem often ends up worse that it was when it started and is much more difficult and takes longer to resolve. While it’s tempting to grab the painkillers for a ‘quick fix’ when pain strikes, this is not a permanent solution, and not great for your health long-term.

 

You may have tried lots of different things such as exercises that worked for a family member, or supplements that worked for a friend, or sought advice from other healthcare professionals who didn’t help and feel like you’re getting nowhere.

Can you relate?

If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At Chiltern Physiotherapy we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:

·       Thought the pain would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t

·       Been unable to get a face to face appointment with their GP and been told to ‘rest and take painkillers’ without anyone actually looking at and assessing their problem.

·       Had several telephone calls with their GP only to be prescribed MORE rest and even stronger painkillers without actually being seen face to face.

·       Been referred for NHS physio only to wait for months and then be offered a telephone appointment and given a few exercises and not actually being seen face to face and physically assessed and offered hands on treatment.

·       Consulted with ‘Dr Google’ and scared themselves with inaccurate self-diagnoses.

·       Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse

·       Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight

·       Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains as they get older” - making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”

 

Any of those sound familiar?

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physios to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some solid advice given to you over the phone. The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best. 

We have been treating patients face to face again since May 2020 with our COVID secure policies and procedures.  

For those still shielding, or in self isolation due to travel or a family member with COVID symptoms, and those who just LOVE the convenience of having their physiotherapy anywhere, be that at home or at work, with no need to waste time commuting to the clinic, we will be continuing our Online Physiotherapy Service indefinitely!  

Can Online Video Physiotherapy help You?

Everyone's back pain/knee pain/shoulder pain is different, so a generic set of exercises found on the Internet is NOT the solution, and could make it WORSE! 

As Physiotherapists we are astute LISTENERS. While we may not be able to physically put our hands on you, even during visits to our clinic, the most important thing that you get from us is our expert knowledge and understanding about how muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, joints e.t.c behave when injured, and what can be done to solve your pain.

We can do this with online video physiotherapy!

By intently listening when you tell us about your pain - how and when it started, what movements make it better or worse, how it varies throughout the day, how it feels (sharp, dull or nagging), we are able to use or extensive experience and expertise to formulate a diagnosis. Looking at the painful area via video for swelling or bruising and observing your movement patterns further aides our thought process in determining a diagnosis.

Testimonials

Chiltern Physiotherapy is a fantastic practice. The diagnosis and treatment I got here has been life-changing (I mean literally). They have helped by not only fixing my problem but in helping me understand my body better than I ever have before. I wish that someone had told me all this information years and years ago. Now I feel empowered to make better choices for myself, I am stronger and healthier and less likely to put myself back in the position of needing help again. They are friendly and caring people who strive to do their best to help. The Pilates classes compliment the physiotherapy and are truly excellent. Once you have tried it you wont want to give it up. Would recommend them with all my heart.  Katrina Collins
