Services

I offer a home visit based service in Witney and surrounding areas of West Oxfordshire. I can also offer out-patient appointments at Witney Physiotherapy Centre.

Assessment

At the first appointment I will carry out a detailed assessment of your physical problems. This will include a discussion of what your problems are, and how they are affecting you, along with any other relevant medical issues. Following this I will carry out a physical assessment which will be tailored to your needs. It may include evaluating posture, balance, muscle activation and strength, walking ability etc. This will take 90 minutes. At the end of the assessment I will summarise my findings and we can discuss what is required to improve, both in terms of exercise programmes and frequency of sessions. After this session I will write a report detailing the findings of the assessment and the agreed treatment plan. This will be sent to yourself and any other health professional involved with your care.

Treatments

As every client is different, the treatments are tailored to the individualís needs. They are usually an hour in duration. However if a longer session is required this can be accommodated.

Individualised Exercise Programme

This can be provided for more active clients who are motivated to work independently in order to manage their problems. A review of the exercises can be arranged at 6-8 week intervals, or as required.

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Assessments

FES is an external electronic device used to correct a drop foot when walking. It is used only with neurological clients and offers an alternative to more traditional splints. I can provide specific assessments to see if an FES device is suitable for an individual and improves the efficiency of their walking pattern.
