With a wealth of knowledge our team combines years of experience with modern equipment and up-to-date treatments to offer the best physiotherapy in the Isle of Wight. As a private practice, we focus on delivering a service that is second-to-none delivered at the times you need it most.  We aim to see patients within 24 hours, so if you don't want to wait weeks to see your GP and then weeks to see an NHS Physiotherapist, call PhysioCare TODAY!

Your first appointment

At the initial appointment the Physiotherapist will undertake a thorough assessment with the aim of diagnosing the problem, discussing treatment options and giving management advice. The physiotherapist may decide to start with an exercise programme for you to do at home, along with advice on how to manage the condition. If the assessment is not too complex there is normal

The cost of each 40 minute appointment is £50.00 and, for your convenience, we accept payment by credit/debit card (including AMEX), cash or cheque.

Additional fees: We are happy to produce letters/ physiotherapy reports for GP’s, Consultants etc., but there is an additional charge payable from £10.00 up to £30.00 depending on the length/detail required.


Acupuncture

Research has shown that 70% of people gain relief from pain with acupuncture and, frequently, good results are achieved when more conventional medicine has failed. All physiotherapists trained in acupuncture are registered with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Acupuncture (AACP) and continually update their professional development each year.

Core stability

Many people when they think of core-strengthening think ‘Pilates’!  Pilates is designed to help build core strength, but also to develop balance and flexibility. Our physiotherapists are able to give instruction and prescribe modified versions of Pilates, which are specific and tailored to the individual and their particular problem. These exercises involve working the deep muscles of the abdomen, back and pelvic floor, which are often the reason why many people suffer back pain. We are also able to incorporate a specific yoga programme to facilitate an individual’s rehabilitation.

Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is machinery that is used in Physiotherapy as an adjunct to treatment (for example, ultrasound). We are also able to loan patients a TENS machine (Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation) to help block pain signals from the brain. If a trial is successful, we have TENS machines in stock for clients to purchase.

Ergonomics

Workplace injuries are higher than ever, so to prevent staff injuries and time off sick, we offer advice about choosing office and work furniture. If you are an employer, a full ergonomic or workplace assessment can be done in clinic or within the workplace.

Home visits

We have a designated Physiotherapist who is able to visit clients at home and PhysioCare is the only company to offer this service Island-wide.  Prices range from £65.00 to £85.00, depending on location. 

Medico-legal workmanship

We undertake a large amount of Medico-legal work where a client is referred from either a Solicitor or an Insurance Company. This often occurs following an accident, where an assessment report is required to be completed and rehabilitation treatment carried out.

Posture re-education

Poor posture is the reason why a lot of us suffer spinal pain. Modern day lifestyle results in many of us adopting poor sitting positions over various electronic devices. Posture re-education is at the heart of physiotherapy and with simple advice and awareness this can be greatly improved along with exercises.
 

Warming up and stretching

Whatever your level of participation, from elite to recreational sport, formal or informal physical activity programmes or just occasional leisure activities, you should gain advice to enable you to participate safely. A physiotherapist will be able to advise you on specific stretches for specific activities or sports.
