Our Services

"We believe in a holistic, client-centred approach to treating individuals with injuries and painful conditions."

Statement from Charlotte Lyons

I provide clinic-based Physiotherapy services in two locations. Firstly, I provide Physiotherapy in Leighton Buzzard, at Craven House in a central location in the town. Secondly, I provide Physiotherapy just south of Bedford at the Happy Body Project in Wilstead. In these settings, I provide face-to-face appointments. I offer a hands-on approach to treatment as it can be a great way to ease symptoms. As part of my treatment approach, I provide specialised exercise-based rehabilitation programmes. My clients want to understand their condition, recovery times and what they can do to get better. I explain their diagnosis and answer their questions. 

I also provide Physiotherapy in a variety of settings. ​I provide domiciliary Physiotherapy services in Bedford and the surrounding area in clients' homes. 

 

In addition, I can provide virtual services for clients wanting professional advice and guidance in their own homes if they are away from home or live too far away to attend the clinic. Virtual services also help those clients needing to isolate due to Covid-19.

Assessment & Diagnosis

Assessment & Diagnosis forms an integral part of our approach to treating the whole body, not just a complaint in isolation. This service is fundamental to ensuring our patients’ long-term health and wellness.

Statement from Matthew Long

I provide Physiotherapy services at Craven House, Leighton Buzzard and at the Happy Body Project, just south of Bedford. I treat all musculoskeletal conditions and dizziness. I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 2004 from the University of Brighton, and I have worked in both the NHS and private practice, specialising in the treatment and rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal (muscle and joint), Orthopaedic (pre and post-surgical) and Vestibular (dizziness and balance) related disorders. I have always been passionate about providing the best quality of care for my patients, and this includes thorough assessment, treatment hands-on, and the use of acupuncture and therapeutic ultrasound when indicated. I provide therapeutic, graduated exercises, with aims to include strengthening tissues, improving flexibility and promoting normal movement patterns in musculoskeletal disorders, and Vestibular Rehabilitation for those with impairment to the balance system.

Can I help you with your dizziness or imbalance?
Most common causes of dizziness can be helped by either ‘positional’ treatments, or Vestibular Rehabilitation. The term positional treatment refers to specific manoeuvres which aim to treat the most common cause of dizziness, Benign Paroxyismal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) including the Epley and Semont manoeuvres. Vestibular Rehabilitation is a collective term for exercises that aim to improve impaired aspects of the balance system, more commonly caused by conditions such as Vestibular Neuritis, Labyrinthitis and Vestibular Migraine.

Exercises aim to facilitate a recalibration of the reflexes that the inner ear organs utilise to steady our eye position and the position of our head relative to our neck and gravity. Our brains have to deal with this information and that from the other body sensors, particularly the pressure and movement sensors at the feet and ankles. This means specific balance exercises and body righting strategies can also be important as part of Vestibular Rehabilitation.

What if I do not have a diagnosis for my dizziness and imbalance?
I am happy to assess you and will always direct you to the care of your GP if your presentation needs further medical assessment. However, if your condition also causes you to faint or blackout, you have new shakes or tremors to body parts, impairment to your speech or swallow, or recent loss in the power of one or more of your limbs, please seek medical assistance first, and urgently if these are acute symptoms.
