TenClinical was setup in 2018 to be London’s leading clinical exercise rehabilitation facility. Its focus is to provide prehabilitation and rehabilitation through exercise therapy to patients with a clinical need. Usually, our patients have been diagnosed with cancer, cardiac conditions, diabetes, or other debilitating conditions. We work with women and men of all ages to strengthen their body from diagnosis, to improve strength prior to treatment or surgery, throughout treatment and during recovery. We work closely with London’s leading hospitals and clinical practices to ensure the best possible recovery.
If you have been diagnosed with a serious medical condition, get in touch with us and we will see if we can help you.
What is clinical exercise and why is it different to a ‘regular’ gym session?
The main difference is that clinical exercise prescription is led by a scientific rationale when designing and prescribing exercise. These exercises are implemented by a clinical exercise specialist for those with chronic diseases or conditions.
A clinical session is driven by the patient’s needs, a ‘regular’ gym session is driven by the client’s wants. In clinical exercise rehabilitation the patient needs to get stronger pre/post-surgery, or they need to reduce their blood pressure. In contrast, a regular gym goer may want to lose body fat to feel better about themselves. Our exercise rehabilitation sessions are driven by what the patient requires due to their diagnosis, and current activity levels. Our clinical trainers are both highly qualified and experienced in a huge variety of conditions. Our staff has close ties to London’s top surgeons and consultants, and many patients are referred directly to us here at TenClinical.
You may have come across the term “exercise is medicine”. Exercise is the single most evidence-based lifestyle intervention that prevents, manages and rehabilitates chronic conditions.
Our clinical exercise rehabilitation sessions are tailored specifically for you and your needs. We can speak directly to your surgeons or consultants and understand exactly which procedures you are having, or have had, and work together to strengthen the necessary parts of your body and mind.
Essential measurements are taken each session
Your safety is paramount during TenClinical exercise rehabilitation sessions. If you have cardiac issues, it is imperative to keep your heart rate in certain zones and we take measurements every two minutes. Likewise, if you suffer from diabetes then blood glucose measurements are taken at the beginning and end of every session. Sessions will also be conducted at the right intensity level to maximise fat burning rather than glucose.
How our clinical exercise rehabilitation sessions go
Firstly, you come in for our initial consultation. This is a relaxed, professional and friendly environment where we talk through your diagnosis, treatment and planned recovery. Whatever stage you’re at in your diagnosis or treatment, we can help you. We work together to create a bespoke plan that will optimise your recovery and maximise your safety. We can speak with your doctors and consultants to find out exact details, meaning we can create the perfect plan for you.
Sessions are 1-1 with one of our highly qualified clinical trainers. The trainers are selected based on your diagnosed condition, so you will always work with the most suitable trainer. Session frequency depends on a number of factors but will be planned in the outset to maximise efficiency and safety.
Where you can find us
We have multiple studios across London and will endeavour to make this as convenient for you as possible. We have a fantastic team who work to the same level so you can be sure of the consistency of service.
With such uncertain times, we appreciate that your need for our services is still there and our online sessions have been very well received for those wanting continued care.
We appreciate that many of you struggling through illness may not want to travel in or around London. Online consultations are the perfect alternative if you wish to stay in the comfort of your own home. Aside from not meeting us in person, online consultations are the same as those in person – so you are not missing out on anything. We cover the same ground and work together to get a deep understanding of what your needs are. During the COVID-19 pandemic, only online consultations were permitted and proved essential for many of our patients. If you would prefer an online consultation then we can readily accommodate this.
