Physiotherapy




Optimotion Camden provides the very highest standard of specialist Physiotherapy.

Pain whilst walking, running, driving, or carrying out everyday tasks due to muscular or skeletal injury can seriously impact on one’s quality of life.

Ignoring a problem and hoping it will resolve itself without specialist attention often leads to a worsening of the issue, and the body’s instinctive compensatory mechanisms can cause new problems elsewhere.



Chartered Society of Physiotherapy




All physio work is carried out by Chartered Physiotherapists, holding membership of the CSP and HPC (Health Professions Council) – organisations which act for the profession and the public to make sure that your Physiotherapist is up to date with the latest clinical practice within the field and in related areas of medicine – we work closely with hospital consultants, GPs and Podiatrists.

Chartered physiotherapists have all carried out a rigourous degree course, and ours also have extensive experience in private practice.




Care and Treatment


Physiotherapy treatment normally involves the use of expert ‘hands-on’ manipulation and stretching by the practitioner - combined with more conservative stretching and loosening exercises which can be done at home; with progress monitored by your Physiotherapist.

When needed, ultrasound or electrotherapy (such as TENS) will be carried out at the clinic.

Facilities        




Optimotion Camden is exceptionally well equipped. As well as the equipment typically present in a Physiotherapy practice, specialist gym equipment to help with rapid rehabilitation for runners and sportsmen/women is also available.

Whether your aim is just to get back on your feet after an operation, break or sprain – or to get back into running, tennis or other sports – we have the equipment and expertise to suit you.



Staying fit


Once your course of routine physiotherapy has ended, or if you have been discharged from the NHS, we offer less frequent sessions for the purpose of ‘staying well’ – to help you avoid any further painful episodes.

As many have learnt the hard way – prevention is better than cure.
