What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care profession. It is concerned with analysing movement, pain and function disorders together with promoting health and fitness in all age groups. This is done by the prevention, treatment and management of disease and disability. Consultation, advice and treatment will be carried out by a Senior State Registered Chartered Physiotherapist who is skilled in the assessment of a wide variety of joint and soft tissue disorders.
What will the physiotherapist do?
The physiotherapist will assess you on your first visit, explain the findings and recommend a treatment plan. With your agreement this will be implemented, monitored and revised as appropriate. Examples of treatment available include mobilisation, manipulation, massage, electrotherapy, exercise regimes, rehabilitation, gait analysis and self-help programmes.
Consent to treatment
If you wish to stop any part of your treatment at any time, you may do so by informing your physiotherapist. If you wish to have a relative or friend with you during treatment, please discuss this with your physiotherapist.
These clinics are strictly independent of Kingsfold Medical Centre and such we are unable to comment nor become involved in the service provided.
