Creation of Virtual appointments supporting those in MSK pain during COVID19
Reaching out virtually to clients who are struggling in pain has introduced a new service for now and in the future at Banbury Private Physiotherapy.
Having successfully triaged and trialled assessments and exercise driven appointments we have been able to help almost 70 people with their orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation, diagnose multiple joint issues, delivered safe and effective care programs and just spoken to those who are older people with no relatives or regular communication giving them a date in the diary to look forward to!.
I am proud of this new service and the clients we have met along the way.
We will be using this service in the future for those who are unable to leave their home, need later evening appointments or lunch time ‘in the office’ appointments or continued therapy during inclement weather.
Please ask our admin for more information on how to book this service.

Banbury Private Physiotherapy Practice are supporting infection control and home working by offering a new telephone MSK Triage service and Facetime/Skype appointments for new and existing clients. Please speak to Reception at Banbury on 01295 257584 for full details.

We are responding to demand for increased access for clients at the Stratford Practice and planning to increase the hours that we are open there. Please contact Reception at Banbury (01295 257584) for more details.

Health is not just about how we physically feel about ourselves. Good health incorporates how we feel about ourselves, how we perceive others feel about us and how we cope/process the ideas of that information sent.

Each one of us through life will touch into the issue of stress, anxiety, loss of self belief or self – awareness and occasionally this may manifest itself into a state of a lack of mental wellness or physical dis-ease.

I myself went through a short period of stress and anxiety which cumulated in a loss of body weight although my perception of what I imaged was very different from the real picture. Thanks to my friends who supported me through the very difficult time, whilst I still battle with a loss of recognition of my body image, I have coping strategies to remain well and able to assist others with pain.

The week of the 13th of May 2019 brings the topic of body awareness to the fore as we celebrate Mental Health week.

Body image issues can affect all ages, cause anxiety and at worse lead to eating disorders and Malnutrition (Over and under weight). Malnutrition causes secondary Physical disease, and this can become a long-term condition and affect the person for the years to come.

At the Banbury Private Physiotherapy Practice, we will be organising a late Summer weekend yurt retreat bringing yoga, Pilates, exercise classes and nutrition talks under the stars. In doing so we hope to promote safe exercise tolerance, nutritional wellness and start the journey to understand ourselves and how to cope with the world that we live in.

For those who wish to seek additional hep we are linked as a practice to the following support:

Kathy Warburton: Counsellor

Deborah Humphries: Life Coach

Abi Clayton: Yoga tutor and meditation classes
