Rehabilitation services

Our specialist team can work with you on a tailored rehabilitation programme to assist with your recovery from surgery or from a range of neurological conditions. Physical and occupational physiotherapy is effective across a range of neurological conditions and injuries such as stroke (or mini stroke), multiple sclerosis, brain injury and tumors, degenerative illness such as Parkinson’s disease, falls and damage to the nervous system.

The rehabilitation strategy involves a detailed assessment of the patient followed by a structured evaluation of their needs be that a return to work and exercise or to preserve the ability to perform daily activities such as dressing, cooking, cleaning and negotiating public transport. Rehabilitation physiotherapy can help strengthen and mobilise muscles and joints to preserve existing function and explore new strategies to adopt ways of performing tasks.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.
