Explaining why pain and injury happen is an important part of getting better.

Combining physiotherapy, osteopathy and yoga will really get the best results for you. We are open 7 days a week, even Sundays and have early morning and late evening appointments available. Book online or call today.

The reason for setting up this clinic was because of a deep rooted belief that movement and strength are key components of owning a human body, hence the name Get Strong. Years of experience working in the NHS and private practice has shown that the human body needs constant input of movement and strengthening.

Pain is a complex subject and everyone experiences it differently, for some, pain can be a normal daily occurrence that is felt in a way of tension, stiffness, or achiness. However, it can also be exhausting, concerning, and well of course painful. Your pain is unique to you and we will do our best to settle your concerns and find a way to ease painful symptoms. What we have learned about pain is that it can be a form of protection; or a form of communication to tell us our muscles are tired, weak, tight, or even that they are strong. Pain is not to be feared but to be listend to and learnt from, this is easier said than done, we know.

Listening to your concerns and finding ways to improve your movement and your strength is what we are good at, using our osteopathy and physiotherapy skills we may spot areas within your feet, or knees, or spine that are not moving well but have the potential to move much better. We will show you different ways to move and to feel stronger, once you start moving, strength will follow. Our work ethic of skillful hands-on treatment and exercises is what sets us apart from other clinics. Our motivation comes from empowering our patients to realise their own capabilities of movement and strength. It's time to Get Strong!

Your joints and muscles will feel better with physiotherapy and osteopathy techniques such as mobilisations and deep tissue massage. We will teach you how to move better and feel stronger, your movement is your strength. We are just a 5 minute walk away from Kew Gardens Tube Station.

Get Strong Yoga in Kew

as well as offering physiotherapy and osteopathy we also offer yoga in Kew, Richmond. The reason we set up yoga is because yoga gets you strong fast! It covers a lot of areas of your body all at once, from your big toes all the way to your neck. It also helps us to intergrate into the Kew community and get to know people. Get Strong Yoga is a 45 minute yoga class that is a bit of a workout to keep you strong. You don't need to be flexible to do it.

Physiotherapy

Your local physiotherapy session £60.

Physiotherapy looks at your movement and works out what is causing pain and why. The aim is to work on your joints and muscles to get rid of your pain and then introduce new movements to improve your strength. Your injury will heal and your pain will resolve, however the brain can be lazy and very protective so it tends to keep you in lazy and protective patterns of movement, as your physiotherapist we are here to recognise this and improve it, getting you back moving fitter and healthier again. You will be surprised at how long the body can stay in patterns of pain and weakness for no apparent reason, our job is to find a new pattern of pain free movement. Improving strength is about finding different ways of moving and challenging your muscles, joints, and your brain. We do not recommend doing 60 repetitions of any particular exercise so that it hurts the next day and you feel like you have 'done' something. Strength comes is so many different ways, let's explore a few. If you are looking for physiotherapy local to Kew and Richmond, pop in to see us or book online.

Testimonials from our patients

I have been to see Callum to help me with tension headaches and various back and shoulder problems. He has resolved me of a lot of pain and discomfort in the past and has taught me techniques i can use in my own time to keep the pain at bay. Callum is always professional and caring and I wouldn't trust anyone else to treat me.
Robyn Dow
"My knees are really good now after your amazing work. I can't thank you enough! I am continuing with the strength exercises and the pain has completely gone. Thank you, Jimmy."
Jimmy Nerguti
"My race went absolutely great. My injuries are great. You did wonders! Thank you, JC."
JC
"My back has been stiff for a long time, especially first thing in the morning. I thought because I am up and down ladders all day it would loosen up but it didn't. Claire mobilised my back and ribs and showed me how I was avoiding certain movements. I now feel much better, there's still work to be done, I know I am on the right path thanks to Claire."
M. Gould
My mum thinks you are great, thanks for looking after her, she is now really keen to get strong!
Mark Staheli
I have been attending Get Strong physio to manage stress and posture related neck and shoulder pain. Thoroughly recommend Claire. Professional, yet approachable, with pragmatic and realistic treatment and advice. Has made a huge difference to my quality of life.
Jason Weston
I really recommend Claire, I have been seeing her for a few years now for various back related issues and she has really helped me out, both through the sessions and with advice on what to do during the day to improve things
Gabriela Vinader
Excellent. Claire helped my strength and running improve significantly.
Iain Hancock
Claire is kind, helpful and friendly. She has worked very hard to resolve my sciatica and after just two sessions I am feeling much better.
Elaine Shelabarger
Callum has worked wonders for both me and my partner; ranging from rugby knocks and bangs, to managing a long standing weight training injury. I have always felt safe, secure and comfortable in his care, knowing that he will work with whatever ailment I have in a caring and considerate way. He is genuinely interested in me as a person, not just a client. If you are looking for a professional with a passion for helping people, I would thoroughly recommend him!
Robby James
Claire has been our family osteopath for a couple of years now. Each time one of us is in pain, be my 21 years old sporty son for his shoulder or me with my back, she does wonders. She is very professional, dedicated and open minded. I would definitely recommend her.
Sophie Taieb
I started working in an office just over a year ago, and after a few months, started having issues with lower back pain. I made an appointment with Callum in the hopes of somewhat reducing the pain. Not only was my pain reduced, but Callum gave me lots of helpful pragmatic tips on my office set up (desk, chair, screen height etc) that I’ve felt the benefit of too. Cheers Callum!
Caoimhe Bennett
I came to Claire with a longstanding (6 years!) and very painful hip issue. I'd been to hospital and seen numerous specialists to no avail, but Claire identified the issue as a muscular tear and fixed it in 4 visits. 3 years later I'm still visiting Claire and she's still fixing things quickly!
Luke Creigh
Claire has fixed me more times than I care to mention over the years and by the time I get to her she has her work cut out. I’m not sure there are many parts she hasn’t fixed, arms, back, shoulders, hips, knees.. there is no one I would trust like I trust Claire, she is professional to the core, she is thorough, gives useful tips and advise on additional stretches (homework) and always has a smile - she is my therapy. And regular maintenance is a must.
Alexis Whitney
Dr. Claire is knowledgable, welcoming, and professional and the radical improvements in my health speak for itself!
Sarah Cooper
I have been amazed at the progress from a repetitive strain injury to my neck, shoulder and back and have seen results week on week. Callum identified and pinpointed the areas for work quickly and I have been extremely impressed how the pain has disappeared and quality of life has returned. Thanks Callum! I would recommend, highly, Get Strong Physiotherapy.
Oliver N
I’ve been receiving treatment from Claire for around 8 months and have found her a thorough, thoughtful and effective osteopath. Despite not living in the area I will always make the effort to go and see her for treatment. I wish I could go more and would recommend her to anyone needing treatment!
Hannah Collins
I have had an ongoing shoulder problem for a few years now and came to terms with it never going away. I came across Callum through a friend and he was sure he could help me. After just 3 sessions I am now pain free and moving better than ever. The knowledge and confidence Callum has in the body is second to none. I have been in the fitness industry for 7 years, and can honestly say I haven't met any company as effective and value for money as Get Strong Physio & Osteo. I would highly recommend. Nat
Nat Moore
Plantar fasciitis has been my demon for way too long. Have been seeing Claire for a few weeks now - love her really positive attitude which, along with the treatment and exercise routine, seems to be starting to show benefits. Hurrah!
Sue Yates
Qualities: Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait Time I was really pleased with my experience. Claire is very professional she was able to relief my back pain during the weekend. I would definitely recommend her practice.
Robert Barta
Highly recommended. Helped me a great deal with rib and back issues. A very effective holistic approach to pain, strength and movement habits. Efficient booking system as well.
Bob Boblington
I had a foot and ankle assessment with Claire. Very knowledgeable and thorough, I left very happy with a list of exercises. Would highly recommend
James Lacy-Smith
Fantastic service from Callum - saw an immediate difference in movement after one session, back to running after two! Fully recommend.
Sarah Dand
Claire has helped me drastically with both my wrist and back pain so quickly! Have been able to return to yoga within 2 months after being told by the doctor it would be over 6. Highly recommend - so happy to have found this clinic and her help
Nicole Holder
I started off going to Claire about my back and she made such a difference to the pain and discomfort I was feeling. I then started with a friend to do the Get Strong Yoga classes on a Thursday and from someone who was rather intimidated by most yoga studios I fell in love with this one. The teachers are all super nice and make you feel very welcome and the space it’s held in it’s so relaxing. The yoga combined with Osteo has given me such insight in to my body and encouraged me to get back horse riding which is something I’m so passionate about! That is all thanks to Claire and the team at Get Strong!
Judi Graham
Fantastic physio treatment from both Claire and Callum, friendly and knowledgeable! Needed treatment after a knee surgery and they did a great job. Would definitely recommend!
Emma Rietbergen
Simply great
Toby Hack
Claire is an extremely talented professional whom I rate and trust implicitly. She practices with the perfect balance of sensitivity and strength, coupled with an incredibly warm and friendly approach. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Georgina Wilson
So happy with the treatment I received from Claire. After just 3 sessions my extremely painful back pain has gone & I'm sure I'm an inch taller! And the post treatment exercise plan was excellent too. I would definitely recommend.
Margaret Ford
Claire is amazing at what she does. Tried traditional physical therapy, rest and other methods for a severely sprained ankle. I wasn’t able to run for several months, then I went to Claire and after 6 sessions was as good as new! Have since visited for other issues with the same great results. Can’t recommend her enough!!
Jordan Cooper
After a recent car accident, I found by chance, Get Strong physiotherapy & osteopathy in Kew, Richmond. Initially, I was apprehensive but Claire very quickly put me at my ease. She manages to strike the perfect balance between being the consumat professional, quickly diagnosing the issues along with suitable treatment, whilst at the same time being friendly and approachable. Claire made the whole process collaborative, with the focus on getting me 'strong', as quickly as possible. Having met Claire's associate Callum, he also has the same ethics and philosophy. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend both of them.
Louise Overton
Cannot recommend Claire highly enough. This morning I did a routine practice __run of nearly 9km__ - this was inconceivable for me back in March when she first saw me with __crippling knee and back pain.__ Claire is extremely skilled and knows precisely how much pressure you can take and where to apply it. The exercises were really useful too. I just signed up for the __Kew Gardens 10K__ run in September and planning to run a half marathon again next year. I cannot thank you enough, Claire.
Marie Dargelos-Lepage
Never tried osteopathy before but am so glad I did. Claire is able to skilfully pinpoint and treat my sore points and after only two sessions am starting to see a difference with my tense shoulders and back. Highly recommended!
Audrey Ng
