NHS Physiotherapy treatments at Body Logic
Body Logic Physio provides services on behalf of the NHS.
We provide physiotherapy services for NHS patients with back and/or neck pain. Patients must be registered at a GP practice in Richmond or Twickenham and be referred by their GP.
We provide these services at our clinic in Twickenham Green. Treatments are available from Monday to Friday 8:00am - 5:30pm. Evening appointments are also available on request.
The NHS's Any Qualified Provider scheme
The NHS selected Body Logic as one of its preferred providers to provide NHS patients with the best possible choice of service after a lengthy vetting process, including a site visit. We are one of only 2 local clinics to be selected to provide NHS physiotherapy. The NHS's Any Qualified Provider (AQP) scheme means that you are able to choose an approved provider that’s closer to home, has a shorter waiting list, more convenient opening hours or appointment times or a proven track record. Patients are free to choose where they go for physiotherapy and should not be referred to any particular location or company by their GP.
You do not have to pay for NHS treatments with preferred providers and access to them is based on clinical need. Please talk to your GP for more information or visit NHS choices >

Your first visit
Your first physio appointment at Body Logic
Your first appointment will usually take 60 minutes depending on the complexity of the problem. We will ask you questions about how the problem started, where you feel your symptoms, what makes them better and what makes them worse. The better you know your problem the easier it is to help you.
Then we will carry out an appropriate physical examination involving a variety of tests and movements. Then we can put all the clues together and explain what we think is happening and why.
Understanding your problem
Often we use models of the joints and muscles involved so that you have a good understanding of the problem and how physiotherapy can help. Most of the time we can start treating you within the first session.
Our aim is to get you better as quickly as possible so you will spread the word! Word of mouth supplies most of our trade!
What to wear?
Ideally, a T shirt for upper limb problems and loose trousers or shorts for lower back and lower limb problems. We keep everyone as dressed as possible at all times! If we are honest, most people don't bother bringing shorts and we can work around what you are wearing... it's not a big deal.
