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.

The physio department is also very fortunate to have a large hydrotherapy pool, one of the only pools in Hampshire and is an excellent treatment modality for post-op orthopaedic patients, as well as acute conditions like back pain and more chronic problems like osteoarthritis.

Our physiotherapists are situated within the hospital meaning we have very strong links with many of the consultants from Southampton, Winchester, Basingstoke and Portsmouth, seeing them on an almost daily basis. This allows communication to be highly efficient and ensuring integrated and effective patient treatment.
