We have a team of highly qualified and experienced Physiotherapists at The Boxgrove Clinic, Chichester, who can help to alleviate your pain, restore movement and ultimately improve your injury or condition. Physiotherapists are experts in diagnosing and treating injuries and conditions by using a variety of techniques such as mobilisation, manipulation, massage and exercises to help muscles, soft tissue, joints and nerves all work to their full potential.

There are many reasons you may come to The Boxgrove to see one of our Physiotherapists; you may have an acute sports injury or a niggling pain that won’t go away, you may require pre or post surgical advice or rehabilitation, or you may want some help to begin exercising safely again after having had a baby or recovering from illness.

Whatever the reason, our experienced Physiotherapists will spend time discussing your concerns before fully assessing both the primary pain area and your overall movement patterns, so that they may understand the nature and cause of your pain or dysfunction. Our priority is to relieve you of your pain whilst restoring movement and improving your quality of life.

Once we have a working diagnosis we discuss treatment options with you, including time scales and number of treatments. At The Boxgrove, we pride ourselves at being hands-on and with the aim of restoring your mobility and reducing your pain, we use a variety of techniques such as massage, joint mobilisation and deeper soft tissue release. After treatment you will begin rehabilitation which may include specific exercises, advice on posture and helpful tips on best practice at work.

Our goal is to help you become more mobile and pain-free. Our Physiotherapists will help you to manage your symptoms and prevent recurrence through treatment and by teaching you exercises to do at home or in the gym if you prefer.

At The Boxgrove Clinic we are lucky to have a breadth of expertise under one roof. If we feel that you may benefit from another practice, for example, Acupuncture or Fascial Manipulation, then we will refer you accordingly.
