What is Physiotherapy?
The diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injury and dysfunction. Extensive knowledge of anatomy, pathology and biomechanics of the human body allows highly effective treatment of a wide variety of conditions. We can also assess the un-injured population to reduce any predisposing factors to injury and to improve and optimise performance. We specialise in the assessment and diagnosis of injury and then educate our patients and often prescribe a set of exercises which facilitates the body recovering by itself, thus reducing the number of appointments required to make a full recovery.

Who uses PPPphysio?:
Patients can refer themselves to PPP if they are self-funding or claiming from health insurance. PPP is recognised by most if not all health insurance companies and therefore your physiotherapy treatment should be covered. However, some health insurance companies (like BUPA) insist on a referral from your GP or consultant prior to them agreeing to pay for your physiotherapy. If you are intending to use your health insurance to pay for your treatment at PPP, it is advisable to contact your insurer first to ensure that you are covered and to get an authorisation code. We will ask you for your Health Insurance company name, your account number and your claim number during your initial assessment. Please also ask your insurance company about the number of sessions of Physiotherapy that they have authorised.
What happens at PPP?
A thorough assessment will be undertaken which will allow an accurate diagnosis to be given and a treatment plan will be discussed and commenced. Exercises may be provided to speed your recovery and education given to prevent recurrence. On discharge from PPP, correspondence can be made with your GP to maintain your accurate medical records.
