We offer a home visit (domiciliary) service for patients who are unable to travel to the clinic. This service provides a full range of physiotherapy treatments in the comfort of your own home or residential care home.
Our home visit service helps patients to identify issues, receive treatment on a regular basis and learn how to self-manage their recovery in between appointments.
Your first visit will include an initial assessment by a specialist Physiotherapist so that they can determine a treatment plan. They will agree the plan and proposed outcomes with you.
Some of the common conditions we treat with home visits are:

Being housebound I was introduced to Elaine and her domiciliary visits for my physiotherapy needs which I found to be highly convenient, and very beneficial. I would have no hesitation in recommending this form of treatment.
Once your Physio arrives at your home, the appointment will last around 45 minutes. During your first appointment, you will be asked to complete a medical history with you along with a number of questions about your condition or injury. Your Physio will then physically assess you through a number of movements. Your physiotherapist will finish the session by explaining the proposed treatment plan and book a follow up appointment if necessary.
Once your Physio has decided the most effective treatment, they may use mobilisations, soft tissue massage, acupuncture, stretching and exercises. Each appointment may differ slightly.
You may feel a little tender following your appointment but follow up exercises and appointments will ensure you feel better. The number of appointments required to get you back to full health will vary.
