Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when a patient is affected by injury, illness or disability which helps to manage pain and uses a number of methods to aid recovery to patients of all ages. Patients are able to self-refer and self-pay for physiotherapy at The Foscote Hospital.

Physiotherapists are trained healthcare professionals who work in many areas, including: respiratory conditions, neurological condition, work-related disorders, chronic pain problems, headaches and women’s health in addition to musculoskeletal problems.

There are four physiotherapists at The Foscote Private Hospital; Diane Speck, Ingrid Stroop, Gemma Morris and Carlos Areia. All are qualified, experienced and registered with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists and Health Professionals Council.
