Fourteen chartered physiotherapists make up our physio team with different specialities in specific areas of the body. This means that rather than receiving treatment from a generalist in a small practice you will have access to a physiotherapist specialising in your area of need. These areas include:
Acupuncture, aquatic physiotherapy, back, upper back, Biodex Isokinetic Assessment, foot and ankle, hands, hip, knee, neurology and rehabilitation, pain management, Pilates, respiratory physiotherapy, shoulder, sports injuries and rehabilitation, women’s health including female continence.
Our physiotherapy team are an integral part of the clinical body and form part of the support team for our consultants and use the latest research and evidence based methods of treatment in their clinical practice. They have regular opportunities to discuss cases with consultants, whether for an individual who is being treated in conjunction with a surgeon or simply for input with patients receiving outpatient treatment.
Our physiotherapists are also able to refer patients for X-ray, ultrasound and other scans to aid diagnosis. This means that in addition to aiding your treatment, your diagnostic test will already have been completed, which will enable a much more streamlined service once you see the consultant.
