Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

Why travel to the hospital or the medical centre when you can receive highly specialised treatment within your home?

Amanda can help treat acute and chronic lung conditions such as COPD, asthma, bronchiectasis, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, lung injury and complications of surgery.

Combining specialist respiratory therapy with rehabilitation physio can speed recovery from surgery, prolonged hospital stays and bouts of illness.  This approach can help return function, strength and independence.

Amanda also has experience in post-operative rehabilitation for routine hip and knee replacements, working with these patients at Spire Hospital in Southampton.  4-6 sessions of rehabilitation are usually recommended after hip or knee replacement and most insurers will cover the cost of these.

She also has access to relevant specialists if further input is needed.

Treatment prices (home physio)

All visits are charged at £60 and are up to an hour duration. Some health insurance companies will cover home visits by a Chartered Physiotherapist. We are happy to provide you with a receipt if you wish to reclaim the costs from you insurer. We take cash, bank transfer or cheque only.

We are now registered with Vitality Health and Aviva health providers.

Links to other specialists

Amanda also has links with local specialists in musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy. She will refer on to these therapists either on initial phone contact with you or after first assessment.

Where do we cover?

Amanda looked after me for two years. Not only is she very knowledgeable and very good at the job, she really cares. I just wish she was still in London!
