Your initial 45-minute appointment involves an assessment and treatment. We assess your pain and symptoms to determine the cause of these symptoms, then recommend a treatment plan for you and begin this treatment. Follow-up appointments are 30 minutes. Your physiotherapist will advise how many appointments you will need but you can stop treatment at any time.

Physiotherapy - Could it help you get back to your best?

Nuffield Health's physiotherapy team in Bournemouth take your health and and wellbeing very seriously. No matter what your lifestyle, profession, age or fitness goals, we are dedicated to helping you get back to your physical best, whilst providing education and lifestyle advice so you can sustain the improvement.

Being located within a hospital means our physiotherapy clinic treats a lot of patients who have undergone orthopaedic surgery with us, like knee and hip replacements. A patient's aftercare is included in the 'one-off' fee, meaning you can take advantage of our on-site expertise to encourage a full and thorough recovery. It also means patients can use our hydrotherapy pool to aid their rehabilitation with exercise in the water.

We also see patients just wanting independent treatment, whether you have private medical insurance or are choosing to 'self-pay'. If you are suffering pain and discomfort physiotherapy treatment could help. Book your initial 45 minute appointment online today and take the first step to a healthier, happier you.

Our physiotherapy hydrotherapy pool

Unlike the vast majority of other physiotherapy clinics in the UK, we are able to offer patients use of our hydrotherapy pool. The pool is available for all types of treatment, regardless of whether you have insurance or simply self-pay.

  • The pool is heated to a very pleasant 97° and has easy access via steps, chair or bed hoist
  • Many people take advantage of the pool after having joint replacement surgery, e.g. a hip or knee replacement as it is a lot less painful and beneficial exercising in warm water than on dry land
  • Hydrotherapy is also ideal for reducing joint stiffness and improving muscle strength and overall flexibility/general health.
