Here at BMI The Sandringham 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 fully equipped rehabilitation gym area.
Our gym includes:
- Free weights
- CPM (Continuous Passive motion)
- Gym Ball
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 The Sandringham Hospital we offer the following services:
- Acupuncture physiotherapy - can be used on its own or in combination with physiotherapy to help treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions.
- 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.
- Gait analysis - is the assessment of the lower limb biomechanics, e.g. how you stand, walk or run, to help identify problems in your legs, hips or even your back. It can help prevent painful conditions from developing or recurring.
- Occupational health - physiotherapists who work in occupational health help to treat work-related problems, as well as educating employers and staff on safe working practices to help avoid injury.
- Pelvic health rehabilitation - pelvic health physiotherapists are specially trained to assess and treat a range of conditions that can cause pelvic problems, such as incontinence of the bladder or bowel, or pelvic pain.
- Physiotherapy for sports injuries - the diagnosis and treatment of muscle, joint and nerve problems caused by practicing a sport or exercising, including muscle imbalances, joint pain and post-fracture rehabilitation. The aim is to get you back to sport as soon as possible.
- Pilates - a form of exercise that may improve balance, strength, posture, flexibility and circulation. It focuses on strengthening the core abdominal and back muscles.
- 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.
COVID-19 Remote Consultations Update - 7/6/20
Our physiotherapy services remain open for business, and we continue to accept new referrals - you do not need to have seen your GP or a Consultant to refer yourself for Physiotherapy.
However, the safety of patients and our staff is of paramount importance to us, so we continue to operate a ‘Virtual first’ approach, as recommended by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
