I have a question about my physiotherapy treatment

Why would I have private physiotherapy treatment?

Physiotherapy isn’t just for athletes or those recovering from sports injuries. In fact, it can be used to treat other common conditions, including:

  • Musculoskeletal issues
  • Joint pain in your back or neck
  • Other overuse injuries
  • Rheumatic problems
  • Post-operative rehabilitation including hip and knee replacements

What happens during physiotherapy?

During the first visit to our Kent hospital, your Physiotherapist will take the time to talk to you about your condition, carry out a thorough physical examination and discuss your goals for recovery.

They’ll put together a physiotherapy treatment program, tailored to your needs, ranging from gentle mobilisations and strengthening to therapeutic pain relief and soft tissue techniques. These techniques are combined with exercises and education, to help you manage your recovery for the longer term and aim to help you to try and prevent your injury reoccurring.

What physiotherapy treatments are available?

We provide the following:

  • Personal exercise and self-management programmes
  • Hand therapy
  • Pilates
  • Manual therapy
  • Myofascial release / Sports massage

How can I get a referral for physiotherapy?
