Our Physio Gareth is is running the London Marathon to raise funds for Children with Cancer UK

Our amazing Physio Gareth is running the London Marathon in October and we would love it if you could join us in supporting him in raising funds for the charity Children with Cancer UK. Gareth explains his motivation for this fundraising challenge on his  ‘Just Giving’ page:

“I will be running in memory of my father who sadly passed away 3 years ago from a melanoma that metastasized in his brain. Upon diagnosis he was told he had only 6 months left to live. Losing a family member is the hardest thing one can experience and having a time limit on life makes you cherish every second.

Having been through this and experiencing the devastation a loss brings to a family, I am honoured to be raising funds for Children with Cancer UK, where they actively raise and invest money for vital specialist research to save the lives of every child with cancer and to keep their family together. 

My hope is that I can contribute to help loved ones get more time together and with research that can result in better outcomes for many.”

Gareth would be delighted if you were able to support him and the Children with Cancer charity by donating. Your money will help fund research, support families and raise awareness. Even a small donation helps (see below). To visit Gareth’s ‘Just Giving’ page click here. Alternatively, you can make a donation at the clinic. Thank you so much for you support.

£5 – Fund laboratory equipment as part of vital research into the biology of childhood leukaemia.

£10 –  Fund research into understanding the genetics of heart failure after treatment for childhood cancer.

£25 – Help fund essential blood tests to monitor the effectiveness of therapy in a ground-breaking immunotherapy trial for children with relapsed leukaemia.

£50 – Help purchase laboratory equipment to support development of scientific techniques for the treatment of children with chemotherapy- resistant sarcomas.

£100 – Fund a week’s supply of the day-to-day research equipment for the development of a supply of donated ‘ready to go’ cells, for transfusion into young patients.

£250 – Fund the development of new MRI scanning techniques for more accurate diagnosis of young patients with specific brain tumours.

Congratulations Gareth on your amazing performance at the Brighton Marathon

Our amazing Physio Gareth Crankshaw has just taken part in his first ever marathon – and he smashed it! Gareth ran the Brighton Marathon on 2nd April and he finished the race in the fantastic time of 2 hours and 57 minutes. This means that Gareth was 148th runner to finish of the 8397 runners that took part in the race that day.

This isn’t the only race that Gareth will be running. On 2nd October he will be running The London Marathon. Gareth will be raising money for the charity Children with Cancer at this race. Watch this space to find out how you can support his fundraising activities.

Gareth will be following his training schedule over the next few months to allow him to recover from the Brighton race and prepare for the London Marathon. Gareth and his colleagues at Keith James Physiotherapy have a great deal of experience of helping runners to prepare and recover from all sorts of races – from Parkruns to ultramarathons.

If you are thinking of running a race this year, why not contact us to see how we can help you to achieve your goal. We can provide physiotherapy, massage and personal training to get you in the best shape to meet your challenge.

To find out more, please contact the clinic on (0117) 330 6820 or email us at reception@kjpclinics.co.uk.

Updated Covid-19 Advice for Patients (April 2022)

Here at Keith James Physiotherapy, we maximise the safety of our patients and staff by following ongoing advice given from Public Health England and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy following the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Please do not come into the clinic if you are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19. The recently updated list of symptoms includes:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

We continue to take measures to protect our staff and patients at the clinic, including:

  • We ask you to arrive at your appointment time and not any earlier.
  • Patients should come to their appointment alone (unless they are a child or require a carer).
  • Please use the hand sanitiser to and from entry to the clinic.
  • Please minimise your contact with handrails and furniture.
  • Please wear appropriate clothing for your appointment. Patients with upper limb issues should wear a vest top and patients with lower limb issues should wear loose fitting shorts.
  • We have staggered our appointment times to reduce waiting room traffic.
  • Staff ensure all clinic areas are cleaned regularly with disinfectant and between patients.

As always, you can be reassured we are staying up to date with advice and guidance on best practice. Should you have any concerns or queries, please contact us on (0117) 330 6820 or email reception@kjpclinics.co.uk for more information.

New additions to the KJP Team

We are excited to announce a number of new additions to the team at Keith James Physiotherapy.

We have three new Physiotherapists: Will Adams, who joined us in December 2021, and Agnés Canadell and Zaheer Hussain, who have just taken up posts at our clinic. Agnés will be taking over from Giles Head and will be working on Tuesdays and Fridays. Zaheer will be with us for the next 6 months to provide maternity cover for Katherine and Sara, who are on leave until later this year. You can find out all about our three new Physios here.

We can also announce two new additions of a different kind. Katherine and Sara’s babies are the youngest additions to the KJP Team. Katherine’s baby, Freddie, was born on 24th December and Sara’s little girl, Naia, arrived more recently, on 7th March. We wish them both many congratulations.

Along with the arrival of new faces at Keith James Physiotherapy, we have said ‘Farewell’ to a much-loved colleague, Giles Head. After many years at KJP, Giles has now moved on to a consultancy-based role.

Giles became part of the KJP team back in 2000, when he first joined services with Keith as Head Academy Physio at Bristol Rugby Club. Over the following 22 years, Giles was a loyal and experienced physiotherapist who made an enormous contribution to the clinic. He provided effective and reassuring physiotherapy to the many patients who came to see him and he was a real pleasure to work with. Keith is still very much in contact with Giles, both professionally and socially – and we would all like to take the opportunity to wish him well in his new ventures.

If you would like to book an appointment to see any of our team, please call the clinic on (0117) 330 6820, email reception@kjpclinics.co.uk or book online at www.keithjamesphysiotherapy.co.uk.

Our diary system is now back up and running

Our diary system is now back up and running. This means that all appointments can be made as normal.

If you use online booking, please feel free to go ahead and book your appointment. If you normally phone the clinic to book your appointment, we look forward to receiving your call.

Many thanks for your patience while we dealt with this IT issue.

 

Apologies, online booking is currently unavailable

Due to a problem with our clinic computer, we are currently experiencing disruption to our appointment booking system. Unfortunately this means that our online booking system and internal diary system are down. Please bear with us whilst we are fixing this.

To book your appointment, please phone (0117 330 6820) or email (reception@kjpclinics.co.uk) the clinic with your name and telephone number, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

We are hopeful that this problem will be resolved in a couple of days and we apologise for any inconvenience that it may cause. Many thanks for your patience.

Show some love! Treat yourself or a loved one to a relaxing massage

It can be hard to know what to buy as a gift for your loved ones. At Keith James Physiotherapy, we have the perfect solution. Why not treat your loved one to a relaxing Sports Massage? You can purchase a voucher that entitles the recipient to a 40 minute Sports Massage at our clinic. Vouchers cost £40 each and can be purchased by calling into the clinic, emailing us at reception@kjpclinics.co.uk or by giving us a call on (0117) 330 6820.

Massage is a fantastic gift. Our Massage Therapists, Kirstie and Kate, take the time to understand what it is that each patient is looking to gain from their massage appointment. For some, the emphasis is on reducing tension and promoting relaxation. For others, massage is an important aspect of an exercise programme and can be used to prepare for, or recover from, a sporting event. Other patients use massage to help them to seek relief from aches, pains and injuries.

And we know how important it is that we show ourselves some love and look after our own bodies. So perhaps you should book yourself in for a massage as a Valentine’s treat too!
