Treatments at The Clarendon Clinic //

At the Clarendon Clinic we offer a range of treatments and have successfully treated 12,000 individual patients over the years using a combination of therapies, bringing relief to the cause of the problem, rather than merely treating the symptoms. All of our therapists are professionally qualified and registered with the appropriate professional bodies.



The Clarendon Clinic has provided Physiotherapy in Swinton, Manchester for over 40 years.


Physiotherapy recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body’s structure and function.

Physiotherapists diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body’s natural healing ability.


Treatment involves gentle, manual techniques – easing pain, reducing swelling and improving mobility. Often, this involves manipulation which can result in an audible‘crack’ which is simply the sound of gas bubbles popping in the fluid of the joints.


Physiotherapy does not involve the use of drugs or surgery.



Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.


It utilises the principles of sport and exercise science incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.

Podiatry in Manchester at the Clarendon Clinic is provided by Karen King. Podiatry is a modern word for chiropody and is performed by podiatrists. A podiatrist assess, diagnose and treat many conditions relating to the foot and the lower limb.

Many conditions treated by podiatrists are on the surface of the foot, such as corns, callus, and in-growing toenails. Certain conditions treated are not visible on the surface of the foot, but involve the internal structures inside the foot, for example plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia.

Alongside routine care of the feet which involves removal of corns and callus, we provide specialist care and advice for people with diabetes and arthritis. Minor surgery can also be performed to remove problematic toenails.

Podiatrists are foot and ankle specialists and are trained in looking at the biomechanical function of the lower limb; diagnosing and correcting many sports injuries that are caused by the way you walk and run. At the end of the assessment the Podiatrist will discuss the findings of the assessment related to your injury. A treatment plan will be formed in conjunction with the patient and relevant advice given regarding treatment and prevention of injury.

Treatment often comprises the use of orthotic insoles. Podiatric orthotics are designed to aid gait movement and efficiency by controlling movement via the lower limb. We have a wide variety to suit all budgets and shoe styles, ranging from £40 for a basic insole up to £300 for a specific casted orthotic tailored to exact measurements. Dependent upon the diagnosis, various other options will be available between these price brackets.

The Clarendon Clinic offers Reflexology in Swinton, Manchester which can be beneficial for a wide variety of issues.

Reflexology is a holistic therapy that treats the whole person, not just the symptoms that they may be experiencing. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, the body is usually in a state of “imbalance”. Vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Feet are a “minimap” of the body and by applying pressure to the reflexes, a reflexologist may support the body to heal itself. The aim of reflexology is to encourage the body to work naturally to create a state of “Homeostasis” – a balancing of the body.



The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, or NAHA, describes aromatherapy as an art and science that works to provide psychological, emotional and physical benefits to treat or prevent conditions.

The inhaled aroma or absorbed oils can stimulate brain function and travel through the bloodstream to promote whole-body healing.

Aromatherapy is gaining popularity in a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement, increased cognitive function and everyday stress.

Aromatherapy may be found to be helpful to those wanting to reduce everyday stress and so help with the ability to cope, relax and sleep. As well as being used in individual therapy sessions and at home, it is also used in a variety of settings, including hospitals and hospices.
