Our City and Claygate clinics are now open for face to face treatments
The health and safety of our patients and staff is, of course, paramount so we have made the following changes to make sure everyone remains safe.
1.Significantly increased the level and frequency of cleaning in the clinic, the clinic will be undergoing regular deep cleans to ensure we maintain highest levels of hygiene.
2. Face to face appointments will be offered to patients where effective treatment cannot be carried out remotely – patients will receive a telephone triage first
3. All patients and staff are asked not to attend our clinic if they are displaying possible signs of COVID-19 or if they should be self-isolating under current government guidelines. Patients will be screened before each appointment to ensure they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms, or that they have been recently exposed to a person with Covid-19.
4. All staff and patients will be temperature checked on entering the clinic and asked not to enter if their temperature is greater than 37.8
5. Patients will be asked to come exactly at their appointment time to avoid mixing with other patients and appointments will be staggered throughout the day. Patients will be asked to come on their own.
6. Our clinicians will be wearing all the necessary PPE including surgical masks, gloves and aprons at all times during your appointment. We ask that patients also wear a face mask which we can provide.
7.We will be operating a reduced service to minimise the number of patients and staff in the clinic at one time
8. Between each patient we will allow 15 minutes to deep clean all surfaces and change the necessary PPE
9. We can guarantee you these measures will not affect our standard of care
Working within a COVID -19 backdrop we are still utilising virtual physio for patients who prefer to have their treatment this way. We have received excellent feedback from our patients around the world regarding the benefits of our virtual physio.
Whilst we have to keep our distance as much as possible, we’re very much looking forward to seeing you in the clinics again.
If you would like to make an appointment or for enquires please call the usual number 0207 3858535 or 01372 464968
With best wishes

I took a remote assessment of my working from home arrangements. It was done thoroughly and efficiently, looking at all the important aspects of the working from home environment – the mix of working standing, sitting down, having a relaxed area for thinking and reading long documents. It was a few weeks into the lockdown and I felt that the physiotherapist was already completely comfortable with looking at working from home arrangements. All in all I am very satisfied with the service.City bank
I have just finished my course of treatment with Jacqui and just wanted to drop a note to say thanks! I feel so much better and she was able to give me some great instructions on how to minimise this happening again.Treatment with Jacqui
The work Catherine did with me has been of great help – I was in a lot of pain with my right shoulder and she fixed it with just one visit. Modifying the position of monitors and most importantly swapping the mouse for the integrated keyboard have had excellent health benefits as I am not in pain anymore.European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Workstation assessment
Amanda has helped me through a torn hamstring which has taken over two months to recover. This is the second time I have had a hamstring injury in the past eighteen months so it’s taken longer to heal. Amanda has shown me great exercises which have really helped ease the pain. Amanda has used amazing techniques and sports tape so it’s easier to move without hurting yourself and to loosen the muscles. And for those reasons I recommend Amanda and the rest of The Physio Company.Amazing techniques to heal torn hamstring
I have been seeing physiotherapists for over 20 years due to contact sports, including physio’s from Team GB and England rugby. The quality of Tamsin’s work is extremely high as is her attention to detail. She has a real passion for her work and that comes through at every session. I have had treatment in 3 different areas of my body: shoulder, knee and back. The last two are injuries which I have been managing for many years. Tamsin identified and treated the root of the problem, not just the symptoms. Spent time going through various new and effective exercise I should be doing. I am about to have surgery on my shoulder and will most definitely be asking her to help me with the rehabilitation programme. She is a very joyful person. You go in to her treatment room grumpy and in pain and not only does she treat your body, but makes you laugh at the same time. Tamsin is outstanding, I could not recommend her more.Patient at Allen and Overy in house clinic Shoulder knee and back
Lisa's positive outlook, clear guidance and expertise motivated me to follow her programme of exercises aimed at closing the three finger gap in my abs (caused by two pregnancies in quick succession). I am delighted that it has worked, and feel so much stronger for it. I cannot recommend Lisa more highly
I highly recommend Amanda Harris and her team at The Physio Company - without Amanda's care and treatment, I certainly would not be back at work and functioning normally once more. My husband was so impressed, he also become a client! RVBack at work and functioning normally
I saw Lisa Few for post-natal back pain. She clearly articulated the issue, gave detailed explanations of the exercises that I required and revised my treatment programme as my condition improved, working towards my end goal of returning to running. Lisa happily answered all my questions along the way and I could not recommend her highly enough. - KirstyPost - natal back pain
I saw Tamsin for lower back pain. She was quickly able to diagnose the problem and devise a plan to alleviate the pain with intense massage and also to recommend home exercises. I am extremely impressed by her skill and professionalism, not to mention truly grateful for the treatment that she gave me. I am pleased to say that she has sorted out my back problem.Jeanette
I had an amazing experience on my first visit to Amanda. I was so grateful that they were prepared to see me even though they were fully booked. I was in severe pain with muscle spasm in my back and chest. I was struggling to breathe because of the pain and could barely manage to walk. I virtually crawled in to see Amanda and 45 minutes later after acupuncture and manipulation, I walked out. Incredible. Thank you so much.Crawled in -- and walked out!
I have had treatments with Amanda Harris over the last six weeks. At all times Amanda was very professional, helpful and the treatment has been successful. I am very pleased with the progress I have made and would definitely come back.Successful treatment
I found my sessions with Lisa Few to be invaluable. She outlined the causes of the problem very clearly and spent a long time explaining how the problem could be improved, over time, with pelvic floor exercises and correct fluid intake. Being taught how to do the exercises properly and following the programme Lisa devised for me have already improved my symptoms and will continue to do so in the future.Invaluable - my symptoms already improved
