The Tyler Clinic offers group therapy sessions for sports groups, care homes, and children.

These sessions are held in conjunction with the Tyler Academy so as to offer excellent value for money to patients, and a wonderful opportunity for our students to practice their skills.

The group therapy scheme has been designed to get the Tyler clinic out in to the community, where we can provide Body Mechanics Therapy to thoes who may other wise not have the opportunity to recieve it.

Group therapy sessions are tailored to the participants needs, be it joint care for the elderly or prevention of injury for young sports persons. In keeping with the idea's of Body Mechanics, sessions involve a great deal of self help advice, and progressive remedial exercises. This is complimented by hands on treatment where necesary. Below are just a few examples of what Group Therapy we can offer.

Joint care

Aches and pains in the joints become common as we naturally age. Unfortunately many people simply suffer with it in the belief that little can be done, or that therapy is too expensive. It is true that Arthritis can not yet be cured, but with some simple advice, regular mobility exercise, and hands on techniques, arthritic pains and other joint conditions can be significantly improved. The sessions are fun, therapeutic and   informative, encouraging active participation and treating each participant as an individual within the class.

The joint care Group therapy programme

Just £12.50 per person, for a 90 minute session of joint therapy

What does the session involve?

  • A short introduction to who we are and how we can help.
  • An informative talk on self help for joint pain.
  • Gentle remedial exercises. Participants will be encouraged to use gentle safe exercises to mobilise their joints and prevent the stiffness which causes pain.
  • Hands on therapy, by Laura Tyler BM therapist, assisted by students of the Tyler Academy. A schedule will be organised by which patients alternate between various therapeutic treatments. This allows us to achieve great results in a short period of time, using electro therapies such as Ultra Sound to reduce pain and swelling,, warm wax baths to sooth aching hands, while others spa tired feet, or have a gentle remedial massage, etc.
  • A brief question and answer session for participants to express queries or ask for further advice.
