Book an appointment



Your initial 45-minute appointment involves an assessment and treatment. We assess your pain and symptoms to determine the cause of these symptoms, then recommend a treatment plan for you and begin this treatment. Follow-up appointments are 30 minutes. Your physiotherapist will advise how many appointments you will need but you can stop treatment at any time.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a profession whose aim is to encourage and support the return to normal following illness, surgery, disease or trauma. It can be effective in the treatment of a range of muscle, joint and nerve conditions.

Physiotherapists use a wide range of techniques such as manual therapy and exercise prescription to maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

We can offer expertise in upper limb and hand rehabilitation, pain management programmes and post-surgical recovery. Many of our therapists are also trained in Pilates, Acupuncture and Joint Manipulation, carrying out thorough biomechanical assessments to enhance and optimize function.

We have strong links with many orthopaedic consultants and have an excellent track record in the rehabilitation of upper and lower limb sports injuries. In addition we can offer pre and post natal treatment and advice as well as vertigo and balance rehabilitation with our vestibular specialist.

How can I help you improve your health?

I joined Nuffield Health in April 2009 beginning my Nuffield journey in triage and Surbiton FWB, moved to Paddington FWB as Clinic Manager in 2010. In 2012, I swapped the management role for a role in the Advanced Level Physiotherapy service, where I became a Lead ALP in 2013, I currently split my time between the ALP service and clinic in Paddington FWB.

My first degree was BSc (Hons) Sport and Fitness Science from the University of Bedfordshire in 1998, I began my role in the fitness industry as a Personal Trainer, helping healthy people improve their lifestyles. In 2001 I began a role as a physiotherapy assistant in the NHS to make sure that physiotherapy was the right role for me. I loved it and returned to university and obtained a BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy from St Georges Medical School, University of London in 2005.

After graduating I started my career in the NHS in South West London, whilst working part-time with Queens Park Rangers F.C. Centre of Excellence. Since then I have worked in Private Practice, and was part of the GB Medical Team for the Maccabi Games in 2005 and World Indoor Athletics Championships in 2017.

I enjoy the challenge of rehabilitation clients, whether that be in or outside the gym setting. I have a passion for getting people back to exercise, be in the gym, outdoors or playing sports. This has driven me to further my knowledge by studying  for an MSc in Sports and Exercise Medicine at Queen Mary’s University, which I am due to finish in 2020,

I believe in treating the cause not the symptoms and I enjoy helping people from all walks of life, not just sport. I have a special interest in sports injuries and strength and conditioning for the rehabilitation and prevention of injuries. Outside of work, I enjoy keeping fit in the gym, watching pretty much most sports and am a long suffering Liverpool fan.

Come and say hello or pop in for a chat if you want to see if I can help.

Athina Giralea Physiotherapist About

Athina Giralea


How can I help you improve your health?

I graduated with a BSc in Physiotherapy in Greece and have practised in hospitals and private musculoskeletal practices in Greece and in London.

I have a wide range of experience in treating musculoskeletal, spinal, neurological conditions and sports injuries. I have a strong interest in biomechanical and sports specific movement assessments, injury prevention and rehabilitation post injuries or surgery.

During the assessment process I aim to understand the cause of the problem rather than just the symptom. With each patient I follow an individual approach to ensure the highest level of service is offered, with empathy, dignity and expertise.

I prefer to adopt a hands-on approach to treatment. I am trained to incorporate Clinical Pilates and Acupuncture as part of my treatment. I have a passion for rehabilitation to promote overall well-being, motor control, core strength and mobility.

Outside of work, I love photography and cooking, as well as swimming, dancing and running. I am bilingual, speaking English and Greek.

I have gained experience as a physiotherapist in many different clinical settings treating patients with various musculoskeletal conditions. I am committed to further developing my skills and have completed post graduate training including acupuncture. I have a keen interest in sports injuries.
