What is Home Visit Physiotherapy?
Our team of specialists are happy to provide physiotherapy at home in Hertfordshire to those living within the AL1, AL2, AL3, AL4, AL5 and LU1 post code areas. Our clinic and treatment rooms are upstairs on the first floor; if you or a family member are unable to come to the clinic or would just prefer to be seen at home, we can come to you.
We can assess and commence treatment plans for you at home for most musculoskeletal conditions, pre and post orthopaedic surgery, sports injuries, neurological and paediatric conditions and we are also able to bring all the necessary equipment to ensure a complete and comprehensive assessment and treatment programme.
Many of our post-operative clients choose to begin their sessions with us at home and then continue this treatment plan at the clinic when they are feeling ready to do so.
