Parkinson's Disease Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy in Parkinson’s Disease & Dementia

 

We support and provide help to patients with dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. Please call us or simply visit our clinic in Chandlers Ford where we will be able to provide you more information.

Here are some of the most common FAQs that we receive:

 

1. Can you explain briefly what you would do during an initial assessment?

 

Our expert physiotherapist would carry out a thorough assessment of your mobility including gait assessment and transfers. They would then suggest and discuss the best program of rehabilitation with you.

 

Long-term therapy packages are available for patients living in Southampton and New Forest.

 

2. Can you provide therapy in care or nursing homes?

 

Yes, we provide therapy in these care settings in Southampton and the surrounding areas.

 

3. How expensive is it?

 

Our mission is to provide a quality but affordable service.  An initial assessment (includes therapy) costs £75-£85 with follow up appointments costing £35-£65 depending on therapist’s experience and length of appointments.

We also take into account how far we have to travel. We offer a discount up to 10% for mid- and long- term packages.

We have recently introduced a position of physiotherapy assistant who with chartered physiotherapist also provides support and helps patients with their mobility needs. This oftentimes makes therapy more affordable.

 

4. Do I need to pay upfront for a rehabilitation package?

 

Yes, we would ask you to pay upfront. Should you decide to cancel therapy for yourself at any point and for any reason, we would honour it and return all the money to you for remaining rehabilitation sessions.

 

5. If I need to cancel a session, can it be moved to a different date?

 

Yes, of course. We would only ask you to give us as much notice as possible. We do not charge patients or their relatives for any unexpected cancellation due to illness or emergency. This would not be fair.

 

6. How long does it take for therapy to work?

 

Patients notice a difference usually after a few weeks. This vary from patient to patient though. Everybody is different and there are different factors coming into play (family’s help and engagement, patient motivation, patient’s condition and current level of functioning, comorbidities etc.)

It is difficult to be precise right at the start of therapy, but we tend to update and give feedback to patient and their family  at regular intervals during therapy.

 

Physiotherapy in Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative and progressive disease (2nd the most common one).

People with this disease may find they have problems with everyday movements like walking or getting in and out of a chair or bed. Tremor, stiffness and slowness are predominant features of PD.

Physiotherapy and exercise can help patients with PD
