For over a quarter century, Covent Garden Physiotherapy has been helping athletes, actors, artists, bankers, lawyers, office workers, teachers and every other type of Londoner make the most of their bodies.
Treating and preventing injury is what we’re known for, but the reality of our patient interactions involves a lot more than that. We also need to listen to your concerns, provide health and fitness advice and – most importantly – educate you on your body, how it works and what affects it.
While we can only provide hands-on treatment in our clinic, the other half of our work we can open up to anyone, which is exactly what we’ll be doing with our new blog.
Every month, our world-class team will share their knowledge, advice and experience in language that you don’t need a physiotherapy degree to understand.
You won’t find scaremongering, sensationalising or sponsorship from the latest health and fitness fad. In an online world that’s notoriously terrible for reliable information on our health, we want to provide a trustworthy, reliable resource that directly answers your questions and concerns.
This blog will be a natural extension of the work we do every day at CGP. After all, the more people understand their bodies, the better they’ll be able to take care of them and the less likely they are to be injured.
If you have any questions that you’d like one of our team to answer, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will feature it.
Let me introduce myself
For our first blog, it’s only right that I say hello!
I’m Victoria, practice manager here at CGP, and either myself or our receptionist Lucy will be your first point of contact if you call us or come and see us at Somerset House.
Despite having worked at CGP for over 11 years, my background isn’t in physiotherapy. I actually started off wanting to be a chef but – though I love to cook – I couldn’t quite handle the heat of the kitchen. After some travelling and soul-searching, I trained in reflexology and massage.
Then I met Mark – who’s still our massage therapist now – at a gym we were both working at and he told me that CGP was looking for a receptionist. I did the interview, loved the place and the people and, next thing, I was hired.
To cut a long story short, I stayed at CGP and over time my responsibilities grew until I had the opportunity to take over as practice manager.
What I love most about my job is the patients, many of whom I’ve been seeing since I first started working here. We have the privilege of helping people from all walks of life with every profession and background imaginable and I’m always excited to find who I’ll be meeting next.
And I don’t just meet them, I get to see the profound difference our treatments make to their lives, whether they’re athletes or performers worried they won’t be able to return to work or people who can barely walk going on to run marathons, the incredible transformations we see aren’t just rewarding, they’re truly inspiring.
This blog is a way of reaching out and helping even more people and I hope that in the months to come it helps you make the most of your body.
