Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can help with a wide range of injuries and conditions including back and neck pain, repetitive strain injuries, joint pain and arthritis, muscle injuries, post surgery rehabilitation, and sports injuries. The Physiotherapy department provides the highest quality of treatment and benefits from a fully equipped rehabilitation area.

Your first visit will involve an assessment of your condition so that a treatment programme can be specifically developed for you. We offer a wide range of therapies that are often used in combination in a treatment programme.

Integrated care

All BMI physiotherapists are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and work closely as part of our integrated multi-disciplinary teams within our hospitals so that if necessary, you can benefit from fast referrals and access to the latest imaging technologies to help accurately diagnose and aid treatment pathway decisions.

At BMI Gisburne Park Hospital we are particularly fortunate to have Physiotherapists and a Hand Therapist with specialist qualifications in their chosen field.
