We also have a team of technical instructors and physiotherapy assistants who specialise in chronic pain, lower limb replacements and hand therapy.
We run physiotherapy clinics across Medway and our clinic at MCH House, Gillingham has a specially equipped gym to aid rehabilitation. All clinics have parking facilities and disabled access.
We are proud to offer one-to-one treatment sessions as well as over eighteen well established rehabilitation group classes which include ankle, back, leg, joint replacement and shoulder classes.
We have a strong history of working with consultants and local GPs and as an integral part of the local NHS are uniquely able to refer patients directly to other NHS services such as podiatry, occupational therapy, the falls team and community physiotherapy. We accept patients from out of area specialist hospitals who may refer patients after surgery (i.e. spinal surgery). We also have close links with the Medway Exercise Referral Scheme which promotes and supports people with exercise in the community.
