The question is what do we offer and the answer is simple – whatever you need. In medical terms we provide the full service, from simple massage therapies to accessing complex long term treatment plans. The key to our offer is that whether you’re looking for instant treatment or an ongoing prognosis we’ll provide it, when and where you need it.
The concierge medical services provided by Claybrook Medical Services break the mould because the treatment comes to the patient rather than vice versa. We realise that our clients are busy people. Whether they’re busy working or having fun, they haven’t got the time to waste waiting for the therapy they need. They also don’t want to wait around while an insurance claim is processed or the paperwork is completed in triplicate and signed off. When it comes to the body, things can often happen when and where you least expect it, and we’re ready and waiting to come to the rescue.
If you’ve been injured whilst far from home the prospect of dealing with an alien medical system, perhaps in an entirely different language, could be almost as daunting as the injury itself. We’ll fly a therapist out to wherever you are in the world and they’ll work with you until you regain fitness.
Getting a second opinion on a medical prognosis can often be difficult, particularly when you have to find the expert with the right knowledge. We’ll find the relevant practitioner and book an appointment that fits into your busy schedule.
Physical therapy isn’t always about treating a specific condition or dealing with a named illness or injury. If you want a general boost to your well-being or simply a relaxing treatment that leaves you feeling ready to take on whatever life throws at you, choose from our range of rejuvenating massages.
If you’re dealing with a longer term condition you can trust us to arrange any treatment needed in a way that maximises convenience and minimises disruption. Ongoing medical treatment should enable you to live your life; it shouldn’t become what your life is all about. We always work to maintain the right balance.
The one thing above all others which sometimes stops people from accessing the very best personalised medical care is a worry that the costs may spiral out of control. We deal with that concern by operating an extremely simple payment system. There are no monthly fees, no hidden extras and no small print limiting the treatment you can access. You pay an agreed price for treatment as and when you need it and that’s the end of the transaction. We’ve made buying well-being as simple as buying made to measure clothing.
If you’re still wondering whether to access our services, take a look at the following list of common conditions we’re used to dealing with. Many of these are the kind of aches, pains and niggles that people often choose to put up with. Here at Claybrook Medical Services we want our clients to live their loves to the full, and that’s why we offer a range of therapies capable of dealing with all of the conditions below, and much more besides:
If you’ve been experiencing tingling or numbness down your legs, along with pain in your lower back and hip then you may be experiencing sciatica. Other symptoms include shooting pains that can make standing difficult. Sciatica can be caused by a problem with the spinal canal or the discs which cushion the vertebrae of the spine. In some cases pregnancy can bring about sciatica, as can muscle inflammation or injury. Our therapists will diagnose sciatica and administer the relevant treatment, including hot and cold massage and carefully calibrated stretching exercises. For some patients, sciatica requires surgical intervention, in which case our therapists will be perfectly placed to administer physical therapy to aid the post-operative rehabilitation process.
Pain in the lower back, often varying in severity at different times, is the kind of problem which many people opt to simply cope with. Ironically, it can often be caused by activities intended to increase well-being, such as swimming, yoga and gym-work. It may also stem form a condition affecting the spine or even something such as poor posture, the wrong shoes or the kind of chair you sit in at work. Our therapists will work with you to identify and correct the root causes. Lower back pain, providing it doesn’t cause infirmity, is often accepted as a part of life. Once you’ve had it dealt with by one of our therapists and started living life to the full, you’ll wonder why you ever put up with it at all.
If you run to keep fit, then there’s a chance that you might develop Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS). It begins as a pain felt on the outside of the knee and gets worse the more miles you cover. Many sufferers describe it as a stabbing pain and it is accompanied by a distinctive clicking sound. If you’re suffering from ITBS then you’ll want the pain to be dealt with in a way which allows you to resume your exercise regime. Our therapists will apply the physical therapy required to alleviate the symptoms followed by the treatment required to increase your flexibility and strength in a way which will prevent a recurrence of ITBS. Before you know it you’ll be back in your running shoes and clocking up those personal bests.
If you run and have just invested in a pair on lightweight, less supportive running shoes then you run the risk of developing Posterior Tibial Tendonitis. It occurs when the tendons which attach the calf muscle to the foot become torn or inflamed and can often be mistaken for an Achilles problem. Our physical therapists will ascertain whether a poor support or a lack of strength and flexibility elsewhere in the body is contributing to the problem. They will also set out a programme of specific stretching and strengthening exercises for the calves and feet, as well as recommending orthotic supports if needed.
We deal with a wide range of injuries associated with the kind of repetitive shoulder motions involved in activities such as tennis and swimming. In all cases our physical therapists will deal with the initial problem at the same time as working on wider strength and flexibility in order to stop any long term recurrence.
The best medicine deals with prevention rather than cure, and we’re no different. We work with our clients on individual physical therapy plans intended to prevent the kind of problems detailed above happening in the first place. Our clients like to live their lives to the full, and that includes engaging in vigorous physical activity for the purposes of keeping fit and simply having fun. Our physical therapists work with them to make sure they’re in the best possible shape to take advantage of everything that life has to offer.
It doesn’t matter whether we helped to arrange any surgery you might have had, we’ll work with you to ensure you enjoy the best post-operative therapy. Our therapists will devise a programme which encourages healing to take place quickly and effectively, and then gets you back on your feet feeling fitter and stronger than you did before.
