physiotherapyPhysiotherapy is a proven, evidence based approach in treating musculoskeletal conditions. We offer a range of appointment times between the hours of 07.30 and 20:00 and can normally book patients in within 24-48 hours of their initial request.

At our hospital you can also benefit from Hand therapy service:

Hand therapy specialists provide assessment and holistic rehabilitation for patients who have a hand of upper limb injury or condition. The treatment is tailored to suit the individual and focuses on returning the patient to an optimal level of functional activity.

Upon referral, the therapist will assess your upper limb (including movement, strength and taking a thorough history of your condition). From this baseline a treatment programme will be specifically developed for you.

We offer a wide range of therapies that are often used in combination in a treatment programme, which may include electrotherapy, exercise prescription and advice on adapting the way you carry out everyday tasks to help reduce the strain and stress placed on joints. Your treatment may include massage for swelling or scar management and manipulative techniques to improve the range of joint movement and reduce pain.
