A detailed history will be taken, followed by a through assessment of your condition by a chartered physiotherapist. This will help us establish your baseline function from which we can measure your improvement. You will receive expert advice and treatment and we will provide you with a personal recovery programme tailored to your needs. Our physiotherapists can also refer you to a consultant and can arrange access, when necessary, to our diagnostic facilities including X-ray, CT and MRI scanning and blood tests.

Your physiotherapist can liaise with your GP and provide them with a detailed discharge summary at the end of your treatment. As treatment progresses the physiotherapist will recommend appropriate exercises to do at home and will provide guidance to help you with these.

*For children aged 12 - 16 years a referral letter from a specialist consultant is required prior to an appointment being arranged.
