Using state of the art facilities in our gym, our physiotherapists can help you to make the most out of your new limb by prescribing a course of exercise before the socket casting appointment. They can be present at your assessment appointment or seen separately and will be able to advise the prosthetist with regards to what levels of strength, stability and range of motion you can expect to achieve after physiotherapy treatment and help them to make the best decisions when prescribing your prosthesis.
We want to offer the best possible service to all of our patients and that’s why we recommend physiotherapy to everyone who is using, or getting ready to use, a different limb for the first time. Where it’s appropriate, we can offer a residential programme so our physiotherapists can also work with our personal trainers to provide you with an intensive course of training immediately prior to your fitting to make sure you can go into your appointment with confidence that you will receive immediate benefits from your limb.
After your limb fitting, our physiotherapists will help you go further. They will help you to work on your flexibility, balance and muscular conditioning as well as helping to improve your posture, confidence and gait or movement pattern to move efficiently. It will take time for your body to adjust fully adjust to your new prosthesis and your physiotherapist is there to make this transition as smooth as possible.
At the end of your physiotherapy programme, your physiotherapist will be able to refer you onto our personal trainer, who will ensure that you are able to continue with your exercise regime safely, as well as giving you the opportunity to reach the next level of strength and fitness.
Should you develop pain or need to see the physiotherapist urgently for any other reason, this service is always accessible. We don’t have waiting lists for appointments and will arrange for you to see a clinician as quickly as possible.
