** Following an update in the Coronavirus guidelines we are pleased to announce we have a provisional date of Monday 6th July 2020 for re-opening the clinic.**
We have been really busy during lockdown re-painting the clinic inside and out and have put in place all the necessary requirements to ensure the clinic can re-open in July.
We will be following the guidelines from Government, NHS England, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and PhysioFirst to ensure all our patients and staff and their families remain safe and well and free from the risk of Coronavirus.
To ensure this happens we will be abiding by social distancing guidelines in the clinic including the reception and waiting areas and have added posters and floor signs to help. We have additional screening on our reception counter and already have gel hand sanitisers throughout the practice. Our staff will be wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including aprons, gloves, masks and visors. All areas of the clinic will be continually sanitised between patients using appropriate disinfectant and if necessary UVC light.
To help keep our clinic safe for everyone we must ask anyone visiting the practice to only attend if they have no Coronavirus symptoms. We will also require all patients to complete a Covid-19 Triage and Consent Form. As this will take up some of your consultation time we can avoid this by asking you to complete the form online within 2 days of your appointment date by following this link:
For an initial consultation for a new course of treatment: Covid 19 Triage and Consent Form
For a follow up treatment session: Covid-19 Follow up Treatment Triage Form
Should you have symptoms such as a high temperature, new or continuous cough, loss of taste or smell please ring us immediately to rearrange your appointment and isolate at home for 14 days. You can find further details on Coronavirus symptoms and what to do on the NHS website:
We would also like to ask everyone attending the practice to wear their own face mask (and a clear visor if you have one).
We would really appreciate you using the hand gel sanitiser on entering the premises and ensuring you maintain the 2 metre social distancing in the reception and waiting areas.
Whilst we do have a waiting area we are restricting the number of people using the chairs so would be extremely grateful if family members do not wait with you. In circumstances where a family member is needed we would be able to accommodate them but as you can appreciate we would like to avoid this wherever possible to allow us to keep the number of people within the practice to a minimum at any one time.
We really appreciate your help in our endeavour to keep everyone safe and we’re really looking forward to re-opening the practice.
In the meantime stay safe and well and should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us on 01943 850723 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Temporary Clinic Closure due to the escalating Coronavirus Pandemic
Due to the escalating situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic we have taken the decision to temporarily close our doors until further notice.
We must put the safety and well being of our patients, particularly those most vulnerable and our staff and their families as our top priority. We must also take the right decision now to ensure we are helping in the national effort to reduce the burden on our NHS in their current battle to save lives.
We are devastated and the decision to close has been extremely stressful for all of us. We would like to thank all our lovely customers for your continued and loyal support. We are currently in the process of contacting all of you by telephone to ensure you are aware of the clinic’s decision.
Please stay safe and well and take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
We look forward to seeing you all as soon as it is safe to do so.
With lots of love from the Physio Logic team. 💕💕💕
Once again we will be a drop off point for any pressies and selection box donations for the wonderful Mel Metcalfe and her huge efforts for the Yorkshire’s Children’s Hospital’s Christmas Gift Appeal.
Happy Yorkshire Day Otley!
Wow! Where has the time gone!
I can’t believe it’s 25 years this March since I first started Otley Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic in the parade of shops on The Gills in Otley back in 1994! It seems like yesterday! And what a journey! So many people to thank especially all our fantastic customers many of whom walked through the door all those years ago and have become such lovely friends. Thank you for all your support and being part of the journey. I have met so many interesting and wonderful customers who haven’t just attended for treatment but have also lent such fantastic support and words of wisdom and advice as the clinic grew and I was learning to find my feet in running a business. I started with a vision to provide a really ethical and quality physiotherapy service, one that wasn’t governed by time. It was and still remains really important to me that a service provides plenty of time for assessing, treating and explaining people’s problems so that patients feel confident in managing their conditions away from the clinic.
I couldn’t have done it without all the staff both past and present. Since 1994 and the clinic’s initial location on The Gills where I first took on staff to help as the business grew, to 4 years later and a move to the Carr Bank Cottages townhouse on St Richard’s Roads in 1998, before its present town centre location on Westgate in 2003, they have all been part of the journey too. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you all. To those whose chapter in the Physio Logic story finished as they moved on to pastures new, some as far away as Australia and New Zealand; to absent colleagues and friends whom are sadly no longer with us but stay in our thoughts and to all our present staff who are so experienced, hard working and committed to the clinic’s ethos, I’m so lucky to have such a fantastic bunch of people. Thank you.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the GPs, Specialists, Sports Clubs and Companies whom have referred patients to us since the business started, to all the staff and GPs at Charles Street Surgery who made the 2009 Pilot Physiotherapy Service so enjoyable to be part of; it’s been a pleasure to get to know you and to be able to work with you all.
Last but not least I would like to say a big thank you to my family, especially Peter for supporting me throughout this roller coaster of a journey. You’ve been a rock of support.
Here’s to the next 25!
So pleased to be nominated for the Best Service Sector at the #OBA19. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us and for all your support. Feeling honoured. #Otley @OtleyChamber

Otley Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic celebrates 21 years!
Otley Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic at Physio Logic Ltd is delighted to celebrate its 21st anniversary in 2015 under the guidance of Wendy Carswell. Wendy first started Otley Physiotherapy & Sports Injuries Clinic back in 1994 turning it into Physio Logic, a limited company in 2002.
Based on Westgate in Otley, Physio Logic provides an array of specialist healthcare professions providing ethical and high quality healthcare to the local community of Otley, Ilkley, Leeds, Harrogate and surrounding areas.
The practice has eight highly qualified Chartered Physiotherapists with a wealth of experience providing physiotherapy for a whole range of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, as well as neurological, respiratory, gynaecological and oncological problems.
Physio Logic also has two registered Osteopaths, a Chiropodist, Podiatrist specialising in Gait Analysis and Biomechanical assessments, and a qualified Chinese Doctor practising Chinese Medicine including Acupuncture. The practice also offers Aromatherapy and Reflexology as well as sports massage and musculoskeletal screening sessions.
In 2009 Physio Logic was delighted to be awarded willing provider status by the NHS and trialled a successful 9 month NHS physiotherapy pilot service to Leeds Primary Care Trust for the provision of physiotherapy to Charles Street Surgery in Otley.
To enable their staff to maintain evidence based best practice and continually keep abreast of current research, Physio Logic is proud to be a centre for training, providing regular postgraduate courses from the premises for physiotherapists, osteopaths, and sports therapists locally and nationally.
Physio Logic has been excited to announce the addition of a new Power Plate® machine to the practice and is now registered as a Power Plate® training facility having six of their physiotherapists certified as Power Plate® Instructors. The physiotherapists are embracing the Power Plate® as an excellent rehabilitation tool due to the range of benefits the Power Plate® offers.
Many services have been added over the years including the Power Plate for rehabilitation and more recently Laura, one of the physiotherapists, has launched Therapeutic Pilates classes on a Saturday morning. Combining Pilates exercises and physiotherapy it uses low impact exercises to strengthen the core muscles to enhance recovery, reduce the risk of further injuries and provide a long term approach to the management of many health conditions. Drop in to book a course of classes or call on 01943 850723. The classes are available for everyone and many patients are finding them an extremely useful rehabilitation tool following treatment.
