Physiotherapy services at Spire Leicester Hospital

Fast access to a physiotherapist specialising in your area of need

Our team of highly experienced specialist physiotherapists provide the highest levels of clinical excellence and expertise.

Thirteen 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 (hydrotherapy)
  • Lower and upper back and neck pain
  • Biodex Isokinetic Assessment (for assessing strength in various areas of the body)
  • Hip and knee pain
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Hand therapy
  • Tendinopathies (including those affecting the achilles tendon, patellar tendon, golfer's elbow and tennis elbow)
  • Neurology and rehabilitation (for stroke)
  • Pain management
  • Clinical pilates classes
  • Shoulder conditions including frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tears, impingement and instability
  • Sports injuries and rehabilitation
  • Post-operative rehabilitation

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.
