Our physiotherapy team will support you in working towards the goals you may have, to help improve your quality of life and maintain independence within the limitations of your illness. This may be in one to one sessions, in a group exercise and education class or in your own home.
Our Physiotherapy team can support you in a number of ways so that you can understand your condition and take steps to manage your symptoms. We provide specialist advice and guidance on managing shortness of breath, pain, fatigue, strength and mobility. We can help you to learn new techniques to reduce your symptoms and improve your overall well-being.
We also have a volunteer led Empowered Living Team where we train volunteers to work with you in your home using a programme designed for you by our physiotherapy team.
We also have a number of groups that will help you with your balance and reduce falls and that will help you to self-manage your symptoms.
