Well done to ALL my team at Park Physiotherapy!
We have maintained our Quality Assured Clinic status for the 4th year running.
As well as the clinical team who treat the patients and input the data required into the database at the University of Brighton. The admin team who send out the emails for the Patient Outcome and Experience measures all play a part.
That we allow ourselves to be measured by an external body gives us (and our patients) the confidence, and evidence, that we are a Quality Practice.
This is available for ALL members of Physio First, for no extra charge!
Yes, it takes a bit of extra work to do this but the reports generated by the University of Brighton are priceless for their detailed content and analysis of the data we have sent them. Also getting the independent feedback from the patients in a report is so easy.
Thank you to Physio First for continuing to support this and also the University of Brighton research team for their hard work.

Good, science based, sensible advice and information. Well worth listening to their podcasts as well.

The ZOE Program was recently put to the test in The Economist’s Babbage podcast, with healthcare correspondent Slavea noting, ‘I do believe that what they teach you about this new way of eating will stay with you even after you stop using the app.’

While fad diets relying on calorie counting may be fruitful for short-term weight-loss, they’re near impossible to sustain and fail to acknowledge your unique biology or the importance of food quality - two things that determine health and weight management.

Your way to better health 13/07/2022

Your way to better health

Your way to better health


Good advice to help with the immune system, something we all need as Covid rates are rising!

Health advice can feel like a lot of ‘don’ts’ but one of the best things about prioritising your gut health is that it’s all about what you add in, not what you cut out.

Your gut microbiota thrives on fiber and polyphenol-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, and spices.

As our Head of Programs Dr Emily Leeming, RD says: the important focus for your gut health is getting enough of these types of plant foods to nourish a wide variety of good gut bugs and nurture diversity in your gut microbiome.

So this week, focus on what you can add to your plate rather than what you ‘shouldn’t’ eat, your microbes will thank you 💛

We have several physiotherapists at Park Physiotherapy who practice Acupuncture and are members of the AACP.

(Shared with permission from a lady who recently contacted us) We know our members are incredible clinicians who work consistently hard to care for their patients. Well done Lisa! 🌟

I am writing to personally thank your team for being so helpful when I recently telephoned to seek some advice in locating a physiotherapist who offers acupuncture, to help my mother-in-law in managing her chronic pain due to an old skiing injury. We were guided by yourselves to physiotherapists within our area that are registered to your organisation and were incredibly grateful to get an appointment quickly with a wonderful lady called Lisa.

To cut a long story short, the acupuncture worked wonders and it’s given my mother in law a new lease of life as the medication she had been taking for the pain left her with extreme fatigue and unable to exercise.
Lisa, the physiotherapist was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke very highly about your organisation and the quality of training she had received. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you! Not only for advising/guiding us in the first place but for training your members to such a high standard that they can make such a difference.

Searching for a reputable practitioner can be such a minefield but having a professional organisation such as yourselves makes it much less of a headache, knowing those that are registered are appropriately qualified to a high standard. We will certainly be recommending your members to our friends and colleagues in the future.

Thank you again for all your help,
Sue and Graham Edwards.

Increase your weight bearing exercise to improve your bone strength. If this is difficult due to pain or weakness, give us a call to make an appointment for advice.

Having osteoporosis means you're more likely to break a bone than the average adult.

Osteoporosis is a condition where bone strength weakens, becomes brittle and is susceptible to fracture. Physiotherapy can help to reduce the risk of trips and falls, it can also help to maintain range of movement, strengthen muscles and improve mobility.

Regularly exercising is another beneficial way to help strengthen bones and slow the process of bone loss.
