Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the key to restoring your ability to live a full, active and healthy life after an injury, illness or disability.

We use physiotherapy at London Bridge Outpatients to help you fully recover from a range of injuries and conditions as quickly as possible, give you back your movement, and reduce the risk of injury in the future.

How can physiotherapy help you?

At London Bridge Hospital different branches of physiotherapy are used to help across a range of areas. This includes:

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy – used to recover from day-to-day injuries, like trauma, lifestyle or work, such as strains, sprains and back and neck pain.

Sports Physiotherapy – used to help sports and physically active people recover from sporting injuries and enhance sports performance.

Women’s Health Physiotherapy – used to treat problems related to the pelvic floor and pelvis. These may be either gynaecological or obstetric (pregnancy) related.

Hand Therapy – used to aid recovery or alleviate symptoms from hand injuries, such as work accidents or long-term chronic conditions.

Neuro Outpatient Physiotherapy – used to help with physical problems caused from a neurological injury or condition, such as a head jury or stroke.
