Due to new Government guidelines requiring gym closures as of Friday March 20th, Nigel's clinic within Virgin Active Solihull is currently unavailable. Face to face contact is not safe in the current environment requiring social distancing and so a TELEHEALTH online video link service is now live and ready for bookings.
Personal update from Nigel: "Sadly the clinic is now closed as Virgin Active shuts down on government recommendation.....closure was unavoidable anyway as my two young children are entrusted to my care and home schooling from today as my wife continues in a key worker role. It was the responsible time too, to limit social contact as the threat from Covid-19 ramps up steeply in our community. Stay safe everyone, and PLEASE act responsibly and stay home for the sake of our elderly and vulnerable. Thank you to all my wonderful clients for their support in my first year at Virgin Active Solihull, and please access me via the new online service detailed below......"
This is a trial service based on an initial 30 minute consultation to allow time to discuss your problem in detail and observe relevant movement and simple tests. Once a provisional diagnosis Is made, Nigel will discuss and demonstrate relevant self treatment and management. This will be followed up with an email detailing your diagnosis and your personalised plan and relevant exercises/advice/education
Follow-ups will be based on 30 minute slots which can be combined with 15 minute increments to create longer or shorter sessions as needed
Please note that it may not always be possible to confirm the exact problem in the absence of actual “hands on” testing that is a standard part of musculoskeletal medicine practice. There will be no charge if after initial discussion the problem is beyond the scope of this kind of service. If referral on to your GP or orthopaedic/neurosurgeon is required, a letter is included in the consultation cost.
Your appointment confirmation email will have a direct video text link that you click to join a secure video interface at the time of your chosen appointment time.
*****Existing patients and anyone making new enquiries can of course still contact Nigel directly via email, text or phone if you need any advice on physiotherapy assistance during this time*****
Appointment times are initially constrained to Monday during day time and Tuesday/Thursday evenings. This is due to Nigel’s family commitments with full time childcare/home schooling for his 3 and 6 yr olds while his wife continues to work full time as an essential worker.
“Expert assessment to diagnose your problem and it's cause, hands on treatment to sort it, and skilled exercise prescription to prevent it's return.....from a hugely experienced post graduate specialist in musculoskeletal physiotherapy”
Disruption to your training routine or even your normal daily activities due to pain or injury is hugely frustrating. Having had his own fair share of sporting injuries and orthopaedic surgery along the way, Nigel understands this. A decade working with elite level rugby, followed by the best part of two more working with the general public, has given him the clinical experience and tools to help accurately assess, diagnose and sort your recovery. Treatment is a hands on combination of muscle and joint targeted therapies, complimented by prescription of medical and sports science based functional rehabilitative exercise, customised for your problem. He see's patients with everything from everyday postural back and neck pain issues, to complex post orthopaedic injury or elective surgery. If you're not sure if your problem is suitable for physiotherpy treatment, just call and ask or drop an email....he's very approachable and happy to discuss your situation one to one.
