Here at BMI St Edmunds Hospital we are very proud of our excellent Physiotherapy Service. We offer the experience of our senior physiotherapists who are all registered with the Health and Care Professional Council and are also all members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
We offer both outpatient and inpatient services. Our department includes individual treatment areas and a gym area.
On your initial assessment visit one of our friendly team will assess your condition and develop an individual treatment package specifically tailored to suit your needs.
At St Edmunds Hospital we offer the following services:
- Chronic pain management - if you have had persistent or long standing pain that has failed to respond to previous treatments, then it would be helpful to consult a physiotherapist. This type of physiotherapy has been shown to assist patients with coping strategies that can help improve quality of life.
- Pilates - (1:1 sessions and group sessions available) a form of exercise that may improve balance, strength, posture, flexibility and circulation. It focuses on strengthening the core abdominal and back muscles.
- Rehabilitation service - aims to improve function after surgery or injuries including fractures, accidents, chronic spinal conditions, strokes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cranial surgery and cardiac surgery.
- Vestibular rehabilitation – the treatment consists of exercises designed to retrain the balance system and to re-programme your brain to tune out the dizzy sensations. The goal is to gradually reduce the severity of your symptoms, by becoming desensitised.
Our physiotherapy team works closely alongside consultants and is committed to ensuring you receive the most effective and worthwhile treatment from our highly qualified staff.
Patients are able to self-refer for treatment and do not require GP or a consultant referral.
Private Healthcare Insured patients are also welcome; however please ensure that your treatment is covered by your provider before you embark upon on a treatment plan.
