Our physiotherapy team at Sulis Hospital is here to provide an exceptional service to anyone who requires help, regardless of their age or physical condition.

When you come to us for physiotherapy, we’ll aim to assess and diagnose your condition and develop a personal treatment plan to help relieve any symptoms and treat the underlying problem.

At Sulis Hospital Bath we have a team of highly experienced chartered physiotherapists who are here to talk with you, advise you about the different treatment options and 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.
  • 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.
  • Postural re-education.
  • Rehabilitation.
  • Soft tissue mobilisation and sports massage.
Please ask a member of staff if you would like a chaperone at any of your physiotherapy appointments and one of our trained chaperones will be happy to assist you.
