About St Judes Clinic

St Judes Clinic is a multi-disciplinary health clinic specialising in Physiotherapy for all long-term aches and pains and recent injuries.  We also offer a comprehensive range of treatments including Acupuncture, Chiropody and Podiatry, Women's health & Pregnancy care, Pilates classes and 1:1 sessions, Ergonomic advice, sports massage and sports injury advice and treatment and relaxing body massage to patients from Leighton Buzzard, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties.  We also have a neurological physiotherapist. 

Whether you are sufffering from back pain such as whiplash, low back pain or sciatica or perhaps osteoarthritis of the joints our friendly Chartered Physiotherapists can help.  Our Podiatrists treat all aspects of foot health from nail surgery and verrucae removal to biomechanics and alignment problems of the leg and feet.  We also offer a medi-pedi which you can only find in a few clinics in the UK.  This unique foot treat combines the skills of a Podiatrist with the pampering of a beauty treatment - 45 minutes to younger looking and feeling feet.  If you need to de-stress and unwind why not come in for a relaxing or sports massage in our tranquil relaxation room.  We are also very lucky to have APPI Pilates instructors at St Judes, again there are only a few in the country.  This means that teachers are also Chartered Physiotherapists so have a superior knowldege of the body and how the Pilates technique can best benefit the individual.
