Physiotherapy

Our chartered physiotherapists are qualified across a broad range of specialities, including pelvic floor health, sports injuries, acupuncture and injection therapy.

At BMI Healthcare, our experienced chartered physiotherapists treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. These issues can cause pain and affect the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves.   

We understand that everyone is different – no two people are the same, even if they have the same condition. That’s why our physical therapists take the time to understand your goals and what you want to achieve from physiotherapy treatment.   

Your physiotherapist can create a tailor-made treatment plan to optimise your recovery using exercises and manual therapies that work for you. We also offer a range of specialist services, including gait analysis, shockwave therapy, injection therapy and pelvic health.  

Our hospitals are now offering online physiotherapy sessions as well as face-to-face consultations. There are many potential benefits to a virtual appointment, and our advisors will let you know if they think you could benefit from.  

Whether we suggest an online consultation or an in-person appointment, the choice is completely up to you. You could even have a mix of both, with some appointments in person and some online.  

At BMI Healthcare, we are proud to facilitate Consultant physiotherapists who can help test, diagnose, and treat or manage your injuries in order to help improve your quality of life.  
 

There are many reasons why you might need to see a physiotherapist. These include:   

Lower back pain and sciatica;  

Neck pain and trapped nerves;  

Hip pain;  

Knee pain;  

Ankle pain;  

Plantar fasciitis;  

Tennis elbow;  

Golfer’s elbow;  

Runner’s knee;  

Muscle strains and ligament sprains;  

Tendonitis and  

Bursitis.  


Physiotherapy with BMI Healthcare will be carried out by our multidisciplinary team, comprising dedicated Consultants, physiotherapists, nurses and more.  

Whether you have a chronic or acute injury, our team will strive to reduce your symptoms through effective treatment.  

 Whole-body cryotherapy

Whole body cryotherapy is the stimulating use of extremely low temperatures below minus 80 degrees centigrade. The chamber works by cooling the entire skin surface of your body, in order to stimulate defensive reflexes and reactions like blood circulation and to help stimulate the immune and central nervous systems.   

It also releases endorphins that can reduce pain and inflammation in patients for weeks, allowing for more frequent and effective physiotherapy treatment.  

Gait analysis  

Gait analysis is an examination where our physiotherapists determine how efficiently your body moves when walking or running. Asymmetries or abnormalities can cause joint, muscle, ligament or tendon soreness further up the body in your ankle, knee, hip and back.  

The assessment allows our physiotherapists to identify these issues and tailor your treatment plan to reduce your pain, whilst offering the best advice to reduce the risk of future injuries. It can also be used to design Phits 3D-printed insoles specific to your needs.  

Hydrotherapy   


Hydrotherapy, or aquatic therapy, is physiotherapy performed in a warm water pool. The effects of the water and warm temperature can help to reduce pain and  aid your rehabilitation.  

The aquatic pools are heated to 34°C, which is the optimum temperature for your muscles to relax. The water helps to provide an environment in which you may see the following benefits:  

Increased range of joint motions and flexibility;  

Increased muscle activity and strength;  

Increasing confidence and motivation, to complement or prior to traditional land-based exercise.  

Bracing therapy   

There are a range of braces available for all areas of the body, which is why our staff are specially trained to advise and fit braces specifically for your condition. Braces are used for a variety of different reasons, including:   

Protection – to help reduce your pain and inflammation following surgery or an injury;  

Mobilisation – to allow for controlled movements in the early stages of rehabilitation, whilst protecting the injured or operated areas;  

Restore – to help whilst you gradually start returning to your normal activity levels, but where you need some assistance until your strength has returned and  

Return to activities or sport – to assist and support the previously injured area, or to offload an arthritic area which otherwise causes pain.
