Oaklands have an In-House Physiotherapist


Oaklands have an In-House Physiotherapist

From April 2017 Oaklands will have a Specialist Practice Physiotherapist working every Tuesday and alternate Saturdays. Our physio will be offering an assessment/treatment service for all manner of conditions including;

  • Back and neck pain
  • Trapped Nerves Slipped discs and sciatica
  • Disc problems
  • Any joint or muscle or soft tissue problems
  • Sports injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Tension headaches
  • Arthritis
  • TMJ ( Jaw Problems)
  • Pregnancy related pain/Pelvic disorders
  • Bells Palsy
  • Pre and post operative problems  e.g.  Spinal surgery, joint replacements

She can also refer patients for scans.

This service is intended to replace GP assessments which often result in referral to a physiotherapist anyway. Seeing our physio instead of the doctor will not only free up GP appointments but will also ensure patients are treated more quickly and feel the benefits of early specialist input.

Until word of our new service spreads, the GPs have requested reception staff to ask each patient calling for an appointment, if they feel they would benefit from an appointment with the physiotherapist rather than the GP. We apologise in advance if this proves annoying, but in order to make this service work, patients cannot continue to book appointments with the GP for conditions better suited to the physiotherapist. We are sure this service will benefit our patients so please bear with us.
