Home visiting physiotherapy

covering Colchester, Essex and surrounding areas

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.

"I have been working with Beth as my private physio after suffering a stroke. I find Beth valuable to my rehab, she has access to Saebo and good NHS links. She is always fun and willing to facilitate my desires i.e. walking on the beach. She gets the best out of me every session with a no-nonsense approach but remains friendly. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Beth and she is an asset to getting my arm moving again."


age 38

"Shortly after my mother (84) had to spend a period of time in a residential home, we contacted Beth from "Physio@Home" who came in a couple of times a week over a short period of time.

These appointments helped get my Mum back on her feet and back home. She continued having weekly appointments at home over a very difficult time for her. Not only has Physio@Home helped in improving mobility but also her confidence. They were very proactive when a hospital visit was needed recently and liaised with the NHS staff.

I would certainly recommend their services, Beth has a great rapport with the elderly."



Physio@home provide a range of physiotherapy services, including:

Neurological rehabilitation

Our neurological rehabilitation service is very much based around the individual patient and their rehabilitation goals.

Falls prevention

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.

Community Support

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.
