Hart and Bones therapists are working within the guidelines set out by Public Health England and their professional bodies, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and the College of Podiatry.
In accordance with these regulatory bodies, to reduce the risk of transmission we have new procedures in place to keep us, our families and our patients safe.
What we do:
- Have our vaccinations
- Take our temperature before starting each clinic
- Regularly do lateral flow tests
- Wear appropriate PPE for all treatments
- Social distance as much as possible whilst still being able to treat you effectively
- Sanitise the treatment room in between every patient
Please can you:
- Wear a mask
- Attend your appointment alone if possible (or discuss with your therapist if you require a helper/chaperone)
- Use the hand sanitiser on entering the clinic
- Pay for your treatment using the card machine
- Not to use the clinic toilet facilities unless absolutely necessary
- Allow us to take and record your temperature before each treatment
- Allow us to share your contact details with the Contact Track and Trace if your therapist tests positive for the corona virus
- Read the infection risk questionnaire before each treatment and cancel any appointment if you have to answer YES to any of the questions asked
We encourage you to have the vaccination and have regular lateral flow tests.
Whilst we are happy to treat our patients it is vital we play our part to stop the spread of the corona virus, please help us to do this.

Podiatry involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of any problem relating to the foot whether it is a fungal nail infection, corn or a biomechanical abnormality. Regular, general foot care will improve pain and mobility.
Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury and disease using physical remedies rather than medication. It can help with problems that affect movement such as back pain or injury and help to manage long-term medical conditions.
Treatments for sports injuries vary depending on the type of injury and it’s severity. As well as physical treatment and rehabilitation, we offer advice on how to best manage the problem to ensure that you get better and back to your activities.
All our treatment plans are approached in a holistic way and are tailored to suit the individual
Recently when an ankle injury was causing trouble, Alice consulted with Karen and between them they came up with a viable solution.
For me, having these two consummate professionals working together has my endorsement. Thanks to you both for the care and attention you have taken over me throughout the years.

Alice has been treating me for a chronic condition which affects my neck, shoulders and back. Her treatment is holistic, sensitive to the need at any time.
It really works, delivered in a warm and caring manner mixed with plenty of laughter.
I would wholeheartedly recommend her professional treatment and care.

Some 10 or more years ago I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes which motivated me to find a Podiatrist.
Luckily for me I found Karen and with monthly appointments she has kept my feet in good working order ever since.

Alice Bones looks after three generations of our family.With unrivalled skill and care she helps to enable the 93 year old to remain at home despite severe arthritis.
Alice works wonders on the patient while at the same time facilitating the carer to do a few things to ease joints, muscles and swelling between visits.
We are so fortunate to have found Alice and are only too pleased to recommend her.

I first met Karen when she worked at Broadstairs Health Centre. I followed her when she moved into private practice because of her expert care and treatment of my complicated foot problems.
Throughout this long period of time I have always experienced her professional and friendly attention.

Alice Bones’s consultative approach spent time focusing on all aspects of my life to develop a simple, structured and easy to follow physio plan.
Alice has a fantastic warm and friendly no nonsense approach and an ability to quickly and effectively get to the heart of the problem with very effective solutions.
Using the physio plan Alice devised every day I am now pain free, back playing football with my 7 year old son and road cycling again. I highly recommend Alice Bones to anyone who needs some friendly specialist guidance and excellent care.
