Welcome to The Penn Clinic. We are a long standing multidisciplinary clinic providing unique based treatment plans by a team of highly qualified practitioners. The clinic was established over 41 years ago in 1979 by the clinic founder Caroline Penn. The directorship was passed to Alex Bidlake-Corser in 2017 who has been running the clinic since then. Caroline has now retired and the clinic will continue to be owned and run by Alex and the team.
Our aim at The Penn Clinic is not only to treat, restore and improve but to also get to the root of why the problem is happening in the first place to stop a repeat problem recurring. We look at the individual’s overall lifestyle from exercise, nutrition to general health and wellbeing to get to the root of the issue. We offer a multidisciplinary service and are much more than just ‘manual therapy’.
We have a beautiful Pilates studio within the clinic. Pilates has complimented our treatments for many of our client’s. Our team of practitioners liaise regularly with the Pilates teacher giving updates on an individual's needs and progress. Pilates helps to reduce pain, increases range of movement and helps towards recovery of injuries.
Alex and the team of practitioners are active in both research and lecturing. Some of the team write for medical journals so are at the forefront of the latest developments in science and medicine. Looking at the individual person with both a science and holistic view is our approach to providing a unique treatment plan for the road to recovery.
