Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession with a science foundation. A chartered physiotherapist will use their knowledge, skills and physical treatment to help restore movement and function to as near to normal as possible following injury, illness or developmental impairment. They will have a recognised three or four year degree training, often consolidated with a minimum of two years of supervised clinical experience in an NHS hospital.
Here at BP Physiotherapy we specialise in Neuromusculoskeletal disorders – movement problems and pain associated with your spine, joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Our physiotherapists are experienced senior clinicians and are all HPC registered and members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. We are recognised by all major private medical insurance companies and are we a BUPA preferred-provider clinic.
We aim to provide expert, professional assessment and treatment of all spinal, joint and soft tissue problems, at an affordable rate. There is no need to wait weeks or months for an appointment, or to take time out of work for treatment. We can offer you appointments at your convenience. We have good links with local surgeries and hospitals and can refer you on to your doctor or a surgeon quickly if further investigation of your condition is required.hh
