Keep on moving…

With more moving parts than any other machine, it is not surprising that your body occasionally cries out in pain or refuses to do what you tell it. Fortunately, there is an effective way to treat many of the problems you may experience – physiotherapy. 

The aim of physiotherapy is to help restore movement and normal body function in cases of illness, injury and disability.

As well as treating a specific problem, a physiotherapist may also suggest ways you can improve your general wellbeing by taking regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight for your height and build.

Commonly, physiotherapists treat a wide variety of musculo-skeletal problems including sports injuries, occupational injuries, post-operative rehabs, fracture traumas, and many other minor symptoms.

We have recently taken on two new physiotherapists at the Clinic – Irene Ricketts and Dibya Alok – who both extend the range of services the clinic can offer.

Irene graduated in Holland in 1987 and currently works in 3 clinics in Oxfordshire. She has expertise in orthopaedics, sports injury, neck and back problems, knee pain, occupational injury, whiplash, and post-operative rehabilitation. She also uses nutritional, acupressure and lymphatic therapies to support healing.

Alok graduated with a Masters in Sheffield in 2008 and has a special interest in back, neck, shoulder and knee conditions. He is also specialised in injection therapy, taping, myofascial release, acupuncture trigger points, and sports massage. Alok also currently works as an Extended Scope Practitioner in a team of orthopaedic and spinal surgeons in Bucks NHS.
