At Sulis Hospital Bath we have a team of highly experienced physiotherapists who are here to talk with you, advise you about the different treatment options available to you and to help restore the quality of your life.

At your first appointment one of our physiotherapists will have a detailed chat with you about the symptoms you’re experiencing and any concerns you may have. They’ll also talk with you about your previous medical history in order to get a thorough understanding of things.

The physiotherapist may want to carry out a physical examination to help assess the problem fully. Depending on the area of your body to be examined, you may need to undress so please wear appropriate clothing.

Occasionally the physiotherapist may want further tests to be carried out to aid diagnosis such as X-rays, CT scans or MRI scans. Referral for any other tests can easily be arranged with our other departments on site.

Upon completion of the examination the physiotherapist will discuss their findings with you and talk through their recommendations for a treatment plan.Treatments we may suggest include:

  • Individual exercise programmes and muscle re-education: to help improve your mobility and strengthen your muscles with improved coordination and control
  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation: to help reduce pain and stiffness
  • Acupuncture: this can be used to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions such as tension headaches and low back pain. It works by stimulating the body to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals.
  • Hydrotherapy: Special exercises in a warm pool which can help to relieve pain and strengthen muscles. (Please note that hydrotherapy is provided off-site.)
  • Assistance with the use of walking aids, splints and braces if recommended after injury or surgery
  • Shockwave therapy (ESWT): this uses shockwaves to treat chronic and painful musculoskeletal conditions such as tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis.
