Since launching our 2nd clinic location in Move HQ, Winnersh Triangle it’s been missing a trick.
We have a superb sports massage therapy team, headed up by Stewart Challis, Jumaane Bant, and George Antoni. Chiropractic treatment is covered by Steve Mullan and Dan Micahael. And nutritional therapy led by Laura de la Harpe.
However, being established within one of the leading Strength & Conditioning facilities in the UK, there was a desperate need for a physiotherapist.
The Solution To Our Missing “Physio” Link
For a while, we toyed around with the idea of hiring a new physiotherapist to join our team – however, whilst sifting through applications… a far better opportunity popped up.
Pete and Clare Lion, physiotherapists and directors of One Physiotherapy approached us with an idea that would benefit new and existing patients across Thames Valley.
A clinic affiliation between Active Health Clinics Winnersh and One Physiotherapy.
We saw this idea as a prime opportunity to solve our need for a physiotherapist at our clinic in Winnersh.
Rather than hiring a single physio, members of the community in the surrounding area would now have direct access to an entire team of experienced and established physiotherapists.
About One Physiotherapy
One Physiotherapy was founded in 2004 at the Madejski Stadium in Reading. Original founders Pete Lion and Jon Fearn were both working with Reading FC and decided to open a clinic for the public. They did this to help the many requests they received to see people from the Thames Valley community.
Now, with over 20 years of established clinics, One Physiotherapy’s roots are strong within the local community, providing effective treatment for everyday patients, Formula 1 drivers, younger drivers coming up through lower categories of motorsport, Reading Hockey Club’s mens and womens teams.
Director Pete also works closely with Australia’s mens and womens National Football Teams.
Why We’ve Decided To Affiliate Our Winnersh Clinic With One Physiotherapy
Here at Active Health Clinics, we believe true care is not a solo act. We’re here to offer patients access to the right care when they need it most. Now, offering direct access to physiotherapists in our Winnersh clinic allows us to live up to this standard.
However, more goes into what the ‘right care’ is than simply having the treatment available to patients.
It’s important to us that any therapist, or in this case, clinic, reflects the philosophies and values we hold.
One Physiotherapy takes an active approach to treatment – aiming to provide hands on, quality treatment, with a focus on exercise and late stage rehabilitation. Furthermore, it’s their priority to educate and empower the people they treat. Allowing patients to actively take part in their own treatment process and prevent further problems down the line – achieving the most optimal outcome for patients.
As you can hopefully tell, One Physiotherapy ticks all the boxes!
How This Will Benefit The Surrounding Communities
This affiliation will offer huge benefits to new and existing patients, members of Move HQ, The Winnersh Triangle Business park, and the communities across Thames Valley.
We’re now able to offer an increased availability and access to experienced practitioners across a wide range of specialties and treatment styles. Alongside this, the team has access to state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment, such as the Alter G Treadmill in Move HQ. This ensures that patients will find the right solutions for their problems.
Your care will now be more effective, comprehensive, and seamless than before.
What’s Going To Change At The Clinic
We want this new affiliation to be as consistent as possible. Therefore, the only difference that you might notice when visiting the Winnersh clinic is the logo on your practitioner’s shirt.
If you’re coming to us for Physiotherapy, you will be warmly greeted and taken care of by a practitioner from One Physiotherapy. If you’re coming to see us for Chiropractic, Sports Massage, or Nutritional Therapy, you will be looked after by one of our practitioners from Active Health Clinics.
How To Book Physiotherapy In Winnersh
To keep booking as simple as possible, you’ll have the option to book your physiotherapy appointment through us, or through One Physiotherapy.
You can book an appointment through your practitioner, our online booking system via our website, our reception team, One Physiotherapy’s reception team, or the reception desk at Move HQ.
The choice is yours.
What matters most is that you have access to the right care when you need it.
