This page contains the current position that Mobility Physiotherapy Limited is taking based on the latest government and our professional body guidance to ensure the health and safety of our patients.
Being a company focussed on health, the safety and wellbeing of our patients is of the utmost importance to us.
We have been advised due to physiotherapy treatment requiring us to be within 2 metres of our patients that we should predominantly be assessing and treating our patients via a virtual approach. This is due to the risk of virus transmission during face to face physiotherapy is highly likely to be the close contact.
As such we will be performing an initial screening for all patients via telephone to decide whether a face to face Physiotherapy sessions is necessary. On completion of the screening and in accordance with guidance of our professional body, we will offer a face to face appointment if we feel that the benefit of it outweighs the risk of catching COVID-19 for both patient and Physiotherapist. This will only be for emergency.
Before confirming a face to face appointment, we will also discuss with our patients the risks of contact and measures that will be taken to mitigate risk.
Any face to face appointments will be at the patient’s home.
We will continue to review the situation and keep you informed of our current practice.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we hope that we can help you.
Built strength and stability
I am a qualified clinical Pilates instructor, qualifying through APPI and DMA. I am also qualified to teach pre and post natal pilates. Clinical Pilates is very much prescriptive.
I conduct a thorough assessment to identify overactivity or areas of weakness; perhaps one side of your body is weaker than the other. Clinical Pilates works specifically on those weaker areas and ensures you’re engaging the correct muscles. This can be offered on the matt (floor or standing). I can also offer one to one reformer Pilates.
Keeping you safe
I have been working with Parkinson’s patients for over seven years and know how difficult coming to terms with the diagnosis can be. I am trained in PDWarrior, which is exercise and movement based treatment. After a full assessment and discussion, we will formulate goals to help with your day to day life. These exercises will be carried out by you independently, ideally daily, once I have ensured your ability to perform the correct technique.
Education and Treatment
Hypermobility disorders can be very debilitating and painful. A full thorough assessment is carried out to identify, areas of subluxations, weakness, tension and muscular imbalances.
I will advise on adaptions and create a bespoke programme, specifically designed to get you working at the right level. I use my expertise as a qualified Pilates instructor to work on increasing stability and activity of muscle groups.
Helping you move more
We all had times in our lives when we need a period of recuperation and rehabilitation. This can be following an illness or operation. Generally I work with patients within their homes to assess their current capability. I then work with with them as often as required to ensure they are happy, and to help achieve their goals.
Move better and feel better
From painful ankles to jaw discomfort and everything in between. Whether you have sustained an injury from training, a fall or just general aches and pains, I can help. I use a variety of techniques, massage, mobilisations, manipulations, acupuncture and exercise. This will help to ease your pain and get you back to normal.
