Physio@Home was formed in 2013
We specialise in neurological and older person rehabilitation, which means that we treat a variety of conditions, for example clients with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, post stroke, those with reduced confidence after a fall and hip fractures.
For further examples please see our ‘conditions’ page. The company was born out of the belief in the importance of rehabilitation in the community and in a client's own familiar surroundings. The benefits of undergoing physiotherapy in a home environment is that it allows us to help clients with everyday tasks they may be finding difficult and tailor rehabilitation around specific client centred goals.
Physiotherapy can help when someone has been affected by an illness, disability or injury. Not only can we improve that person's movement, strength and ability to carry out daily tasks, but we can also assist to regain their confidence and independence in everyday life.
We provide a friendly and professional service and ensure that all treatments are personalised to the individual client based on what they wish to achieve. We will happily include family members/carers in our client's rehabilitation plans and can keep relatives updated on progress as required. Alongside the more traditional physiotherapy treatment we also pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our clients, whether this be supporting them to attend a social group, helping them access the local community, building their confidence on bus journeys or attending the gym and exercise classes.
We are based in Colchester, however, we travel throughout Essex for appointments.
We are always happy to discuss your individual situation, so please don't hesitate to call us for an informal chat on 01206396789, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can help.
Physio@home provide a range of physiotherapy services, including:
Our neurological rehabilitation service is very much based around the individual patient and their rehabilitation goals.
Falls is a very big problem in our older population and is often one that is overlooked in the community setting.
Hydrotherapy refers to using water as therapy in any form, in this instance we use it for the performing of exercises in water.
We believe that a big part of our role as physiotherapists is to support our clients in returning to everyday activities.
Functional Electrical Stimulation
is a rehabilitation modality which is widely used in physiotherapy to create a muscle contraction using an electrical impulse.
We are providers of some of the fantastic Saebo products for both upper and lower limbs.
Beth Thornton, Physiotherapist
Beth qualified as a physiotherapist in 2008 and commenced work in the NHS. Her initial period as a qualified physio was spent in the north of England, she then relocated to Essex and worked at Colchester General Hospital. In 2013 Physio@Home was created which allowed Beth to provide her patients with the treatment they required in their own home, something which she believes is a vital part of rehabilitation.
