Physical treatment for a wide range of injuries and conditions.
Help to get you back on the right path to wellbeing for everyday life.
- Relieve pain and discomfort
- Encourage recovery and improve strength
- Increase mobility
Physiotherapy provides both a manual and a rehabilitative approach to muscle and skeletal problems. This includes restoring normal movement after an injury and correcting the development of a dysfunctional movement. Physiotherapy aims at reducing the pain by reducing how severe it is or aiding in the management of long-term conditions.
Physiotherapy treatment may involve therapeutic exercise to improve strength, range of motion and endurance and to correct postural and muscle imbalance, joint mobilisation, manipulation and soft tissue massage, as well as stretching and trigger point therapy to reduce stiffness and to relieve pain.
Patients with neurological disorders such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injury can benefit greatly with physiotherapy treatment.
You must be registered with one of the following GP surgeries to be referred:
- Wellspring Surgery
- Lawrence Hill Surgery
- Eastville Surgery
- Maytrees Practice
- Charlotte Keel Medical Practice
- Montpellier Surgery
Anyone, who is registered with the specified GP practices and who has a muscle, ligament and skeletal condition or injury that has occurred in the last 6 months can go to their GP and ask to be referred.
If the GP is happy to do so, a referral will be sent to Wellspring Complementary Health Clinic (CHC). You will be notified by letter that your referral has been received and that you have been placed on the waiting list. You will then be contacted by Wellspring Complementary Health Clinic within 5 weeks of your referral to offer you an appointment.

What will the treatment be like?
The Physiotherapist will take your full medical history and undertake a full examination. Your treatment plan will then be discussed and agreed. Treatment includes mobilisation and manipulation, home exercises, and acupuncture procedures where necessary. You may need to remove some clothing depending where treatment is needed. After the treatment you may experience some soreness for 24-72 hours.
