St Anthony's physiotherapy department has a team of highly skilled physiotherapists.
It can be a pain in the neck, or the back, the leg or any other part of the body. In fact you'd be surprised how many problems a Chartered physiotherapist can help you solve, and avoid.
Evidence suggests that early treatment by a Physiotherapist can reduce the time it takes to recover from injury or ill health.
As a profession Physiotherapists do not need a referral from a Doctor (however your insurance company may require one). We are experts in assessing and treating muscular and joint conditions and are often a quicker alternative to a lengthy wait to see your GP or a consultant. We can also advise you if you need further help from a consultant.
Every year Britain's 29,000 Chartered Physiotherapists help millions of people manage the effects of injury, illness and the stresses and strains of everyday life. Whether you're young or old, active or taking it easy, there's a strong chance you could benefit from physiotherapy at some point. Half of us for instance, will suffer from back pain at some stage in our lives. Physiotherapy uses a variety of techniques to help your muscles and joints work to their full potential. It can also help repair damage by speeding up the healing process and reducing pain and stiffness.
The Physiotherapy department also offers Massage, Acupuncture and a Podiatry service.
