Our treatment involves advice and the use different equipment/appliances and techniques to help reduce pain and increase overall physical function.

We also work closely with other members of the multidisciplinary team, including the consultants/doctors, nursing staff and other AHP’s (Allied Health Professionals) were appropriate to ensure a holistic approach to the patient’s experience.
