Following this they will be able to determine the best course of action to improve mobility, promote independence and reduce risk of falls. A well designed falls prevention programme, monitored by a chartered physiotherapist can significantly reduce the risk of falls.

Our physiotherapists are very experienced in designing treatment programmes from remedial water-based exercises in the early days of the injury, to high intensity gym sessions at the end-stage of rehab. They also use a variety of hands-on treatments, electrotherapy and cortisone injections when appropriate to ease pain and improve range of movement. As well as helping with the physical side of the injury, our physiotherapists are experienced in providing emotional support to help the patient through the long months of rehabilitation.
