At Woodfield Physiotherapy, we believe it is important to look at the body as a “whole”. A thorough initial assessment with a physiotherapist will take into account previous medical history, work and lifestyle. Along with a physical assessment this will enable us to devise a tailored treatment program, recovery time or onward referral if required.
We use a hands-on approach to help alleviate pain, restore joint movement and use rehabilitation to enable you to return to everyday activities and sport as quickly as possible. We have a team of highly skilled physiotherapists offering expert assessment and treatment. We have developed an enviable reputation for delivering expert care and work closely with GP’s and Consultants from across the region.
We have a large well equipped gym for physiotherapy rehabilitation at our Bedfordshire clinic. This new space provides an area for rehabilitation of sports injuries, gait analysis, balance work, plyometrics and strength training under guidance from our physios. We also offer Laser therapy for faster healing of injuries, fractures or to decrease pain.

Meet the Practitioner:
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine which involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points in the body.
The flow of Qi (energy) can be disturbed by a variety of factors including infection, pain, anxiety, disease, trauma and age. Acupuncture aims to restore the balance of Qi and helps you to feel well again by addressing both the underlying cause and symptoms of the problem. Acupuncture is used to ease symptoms of pain, and research has shown that it effectively stimulates the brain to produce endorphins– natural pain-relieving chemicals. It can be used alongside conventional medicine. Chartered physiotherapists, with appropriate postgraduate training, may use it to complement other physiotherapy techniques.
Our Physiotherapists at our Bedfordshire clinic may also use another form of acupuncture, called trigger point needling, in which the needle is used to release hyper-irritable taut bands of muscle that are often the cause of pain.
