Physiotherapy for Older People
Age should never stop you from achieving what we want to achieve and we believe that if you need help you should get it immediately. We want to help you recover after a fall, a fractured hip or a period of infection in hospital. We want to share our energy and enthusiasm with you as you recover at home, replacing the negativity and fear that is often associated with older people, with positivity and encouragement.
‘10 days in a hospital bed leads to 10 years’ worth of lost muscle mass in people over age 80’ Gill et al. But they don’t tell you that if you do your exercises enough and get back to doing what you used to do, instead of others doing things for you, you can recover quickly. “If you don’t use it you lose it”
We love to help people who feel vulnerable, frail and lack the confidence to do more for themselves. Our physiotherapists will give you every opportunity to get back on your feet again. We will work closely with your carers making sure we teach them to provide care in a therapeutic way, so that every time you need help with a care task you are encouraged to use as many muscles as possible and do as much for yourself as you can. We will also make sure you only get the care you need and will make suggestions to yourself, your family and your care manager to reduce the level of care you require and save you money.

Here is what other people like you are saying about The Caring Physio
"I just wanted to say that you have been exceptional in every way in supporting me through the trauma and helping me progress. Your technical knowledge and your ability to empathise and motivate, in my view, are really outstanding and I'm very grateful. I've given your number to a friend of mine"
"Fantastic experience in dealing with The Caring Physio. Will provided the utmost care and attention to my elderly Mother-in-law in her own home. She very much looked forward to her sessions (despite the physical work involved) and was quite sad to be signed off! I would heartily recommend The Caring Physio"
"The Caring Physio looked after my autistic son following major back surgery earlier this year. Thanks to help from Will my son is making an excellent recovery by following the advice and exercises Will prescribed. I can whole heartedly recommend the Caring Physio and will be using him again if needed".
"So aptly named... Will uses his expertise to treat the condition, but adds his care, compassion, empathy and integrity to treat the person too. The caring physio cares".
