Who Is It For?

Physiotherapy at Home is an ideal solution for you if:

  • You are not able to get to the clinic easily, or struggle to get out of the house
  • You have goals specific to your home, such as being able to manage the stairs, get out into your garden confidently or walk to the shops

What Conditions Can We Help With?

  • Have you lost your confidence after a fall?
  • Have you gradually become more unsteady on your feet and less mobile? You may be struggling to get around the house with confidence or to get outside and do the things you previously enjoyed.
  • Would you like help to start getting outdoors again?
  • Have you had an injury, such as a broken bone, sprain or muscle strain?
  • Do you suffer from joint pain, such as knee, hip or shoulder pain?
  • Are you experiencing an episode of back pain which is making it difficult to walk far?
  • Are you having difficulty getting up from your chair or getting into bed by yourself, or stepping into the shower?
  • Have you had a significant event such as a stroke or an operation, which has left you with weakness or difficulty with daily activities?
  • Are you recovering from an illness or treatment such as chemotherapy, which has affected your fitness and your daily activities?
  • Do you want to get fitter, but prefer not to attend a clinic?

    If any of these applies to you, you are likely to benefit from physiotherapy sessions at home. We cover a wide variety of health conditions and injuries, so if you have any questions about what we can do for your situation, please ask. We can see anyone of any age, in your own home or care home, with flexible appointment times available.

What Can I Expect From a Physio Assessment at Home?

Your physiotherapist will complete an initial assessment in your home, which lasts up to 1 hour. During this, they will talk to you about your symptoms, discuss what you are struggling with and what you are hoping to get from therapy, and set some rehab goals with you. Whether you want to focus on strengthening muscles, improving balance, building confidence with a certain task, walking with less support – we tailor the sessions to your requirements.

If required, they can assess your home environment and advise on equipment that you might consider, to make it easier to get around the home. They will assess your movement, strength and balance, depending what is required, to get a better picture of your abilities. They will usually give you some advice and exercises to get started with, to help you towards improving or managing your symptoms.

You are much more likely to achieve your goals if you practice these exercises as often as the therapist recommends (usually every day).

How Often Will I be Seen?

Sessions can be 30 mins or 1 hour long. Arrival of the therapist will usually be within a 30 minute window, to allow for travel to your home. Most people benefit from being seen weekly for a time, in order to see the most progress with their therapy.

Seeing a physiotherapist regularly will help keep you on track to achieving your goals and motivate you to keep practicing your exercises between sessions. However your therapist will discuss with you what they recommend, based on their expertise, and agree with a frequency of sessions and length of time that suits you and best meets your goals.

As you make progress and become confident with your exercises, the frequency of sessions may be reduced, giving you the confidence to start to self-manage your condition.

  • Testimonials

    "The physiotherapy service I’ve received at Physio Art from Ruth has been absolutely life changing. I’ve never been stronger, more mobile or more aware of my own body. The exercises in the app have been easy to follow and remember, and more importantly I’ve been able to step down from more invasive treatment for my back and get back to work."


  • Testimonials

    "Sophie has helped me rehab a long standing shoulder issue resulting from overuse of playing tennis and other racket sports. She was quick to identify the condition, gave an accurate timeline of recovery and helped my put in place various exercises over the next few months to get to a state where I can exercise and play sports free of the pain again. I'd highly recommend Sophie and Physio Art."


  • Testimonials

    "There is nowhere else I would go than Physio Art. My 11-year old son had an emergency appointment with Adhip for a very painful lower leg and he was absolutely brilliant. His knowledge and advice was excellent and the results began to show during the appointment. Every physio we have seen there has been highly professional, incredibly helpful and so kind. "


  • Testimonials

    "I have complete trust in Sarah whom I have seen on a number of occasions for different problems. She always listens intently and delves deep into my experience so I feel completely confident in the course of treatment she recommends. I love that she is so good at explaining what is affecting the problem and often there is more at play than just the mechanics of the body. Any consultation with Sarah is fascinating as well as healing!"


  • Testimonials
