Information for Case Managers, Solicitors and Professionals
We are able to discuss your client’s particular needs with you on the phone, or in person at the clinic if you prefer. You can be confident you have handed over all important information to us. We can organise an Initial Physiotherapy Assessment within a very short period of time (most often within one week 2-8 days) and feedback the key findings to you as requested. We can provide individualised and targeted physiotherapy programmes to work towards your client’s goals alongside a comprehensive Home Exercise Programme that will ensure they are getting the most out of their rehabilitation.
