Roles & Responsibilities

The Tilsworth Clinic at Unlock fitness

The Tilsworth Clinic is looking for a new associate osteopath to start in August or September 2024. This will provide the successful candidate with the security of an employed position as well as the independence to practice and care for patients with their preferred consultation time and style. They will be joining a business with a strong client base and looking to grow it.

The Tilsworth Clinic, located in Chalfont St Giles, provides first-class osteopathy through a range of treatments and services for the local South Buckinghamshire communities. We are a well-established clinic with an ever-growing list of both long-time patients and new patients of all ages, who come to us for help with a range of acute and chronic issues. We spend time with each patient and carry out careful, in-depth assessments to understand the health issue, pain or discomfort that they are experiencing. We are committed to providing high-quality treatment, advice, and support, in order to deliver long-term benefits to our patients. The current practitioners use a variety of techniques both direct and indirect. Sports massage is also available from one on the personal trainers.

As the clinic is part of a private gym, any functional or rehab work with patients can both be carried out within the treatment room or the quiet and spacious gym. PTs are also working on the premises and available to collaborate with the osteopaths and physios on rehab plans. This is particularly useful for patients who also wish to maintain their levels of health and wellbeing by offering regular personal training session tailored to their needs assessed by the osteopaths/physios.
