How can I see a Physiotherapist

You can refer yourself by calling our 'Physio Direct' telephone service that has been set up to provide early advice and management for adults with back/neck/ joint problems or injuries.


The Physiotherapist will discuss with you the most appropriate way of managing your condition which could include: -

  • Advice and exercises which will be sent to you in the post or via email
