Our physiotherapists are all musculo-skeletal specialists with nearly 50 years orthopaedic and musculo-skeletal experience between them! They use their detailed knowledge of how joints and muscles work to assess the cause of pain or injury. This may be as a result of sports, arthritis, accidents, or just general wear and tear.
Physiotherapy treatments aim to promote healing and restore normal function and movement using a variety of different techniques.
Typically these may include soft tissue mobilisation, electro-therapy including laser and ultrasound, and specific exercise programmes to improve your strength, flexibility and general health.
We can also offer ergonomic assessments in the work place and advice on manual handling.
Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession and all our physiotherapists are Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
To maintain registration and professional competence, the CSP and HCPC expect members’ to fulfil the regulator’s requirement for continuing professional development on an annual basis.
This enables members to work safely, effectively and legally within their particular scope of practice at any point in time.
It is not necessary to see your doctor before being assessed by a physiotherapist but, if you intend using health insurance, please check with your provider as some do require a medical referral.
Please wear appropriate clothing as you will be required to remove as necessary to allow examination and treatment of the affected area.
Parents or chaperones are necessary for children under 16.
Anyone else is welcome to bring a companion if desired.
We are registered with all the main insurers including Aviva, AXA PPP, Cigna, CS Healthcare, Exeter Family Friendly, Pru Health, Simply health, Standard Life, Vitality Health, and WPA.
However, due to the clinical and financial restrictions imposed by Bupa, the physiotherapists and osteopaths have withdrawn from the Bupa Preferred Provider list.
