How we can help
Our team is highly skilled in assessing, treating and managing all sorts of injuries and conditions. We aim to get you feeling like yourself again, so that you can feel confident and get back to doing the things you love most.
To achieve this we implement evidence-based therapy, help you to understand your condition, and treat or manage it with personalised plans that suit your lifestyle and routine. We also work closely with Consultants and Sports Doctors, so that we can draw on diverse expertise, helping you recovery as quickly as possible. If you’re booked in for a surgery, this often means that we’ll be involved and working with you both before and after your operation, so that we can make sure you’re in the best position possible for a success rehabilitation.
What we do
We use manual therapy techniques such as massage and joint mobilisation, as well as exercise and rehab methods to treat pain and get you feeling confident and in control of your recovery. We’ll always involve you in any decisions, so you’ll never be put in a position where you don’t feel comfortable or unsure.
We also have the latest state-of-the-art equipment such as our Shockwave machine, and an outstanding gym, where we can show you various techniques and practice them together, so that you can have the confidence to continue exercising in your own time.
If you’re struggling to get around, our physiotherapists can visit you at home if you live within a mile radius of our hospital.
Our physios will work with you to create an exercise programme that will help reduce your pain and get you back on your feet again.
Once you’re able to move more freely and have more confidence, we hope that you’ll be able to attend appointments in our clinic. Here, you’ll be able to use our specialist equipment which will help better help you in the next stage of your recovery.
