I qualified and first worked in the Midlands area, before settling in Cambridgeshire in 1994. Having worked in local NHS hospitals and clinics, I have built up a knowledge and aptitude for treating"musculoskeletal" problems, realising quite early in my career, that this was the area I wanted to specialise in.
The clinic, established in 1996, is run by Deborah Cheetham who qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist from Sheffield Hallam University in 1981. It is a healthcare profession with a sciencefoundation and is held to be within the sphere of conventional rather than alternative medicine.
Our Physiotherapy Clinic offers a comprehensive range of treatments. We aim to provide a complete package of care to patients, which combine a full assessment with education and self-help programmesand conventional physio-therapeutic treatments. The latest electrotherapy equipment to ease your pain in conjunction with a tailor made exercise programme speed up your recovery. Acupuncture for pain relief available.
I have had around five years of discomfort in both knees, which has became progressively worse. It ultimately stopped me doing all the things I love most (running, cycling, climbing, dancing, skiing),but of more concern to me, it was impacting on my work. I am an Antarctic meteorologist and I work in Antarctica for six months of the year, so it is essential that I remain active and strong. I tried physiotherapy and acupuncture with no success and finally had a consultation with a knee surgeon.

Our philosophy is simple. Cut through all the nonsense and get to the root of the problem. We don't follow the 'traditional' blueprint of most Physiotherapy Clinics. We won't confuse you with longexplanations, we are not into just treating your symptoms (that won't get you anywhere), we won't give you generic exercise programmes and we will never ever say 'see how you get on and call me if it gets any worse'.
In 2014, we introduced Yoga to our Peterborough and Tansor (near Oundle) practices. Healing yoga works in a holistic way with techniques of using the body, mind and breath to promote well-being. Thereis an emphasis on an intelligent and respectful approach to practice that is beneficial and causes no harm. Stresses and strains in life manifest in the body, breath and mind, such as physical tension, worrying thoughts and the inability to sleep.
