Our physiotherapist visits your home
A home visit is when the physiotherapist visits the patients home and provides physiotherapy assessment and treatment there.
There are many people who would benefit from a home visit. For example, if you are unable to travel to our clinic.
It allows the physiotherapist to assess you in your home environment which is beneficial. For example, we may identify risks that could lead to a fall or take a closer look at a specific problem a patient has. We can adapt treatment immediately. Often, there is a solution to the problem or an easy way of reducing the risk.
Nowadays, equipment is light and transportable. Therefore, we bring all the necessary equipment to your home.

- Orthopaedic conditions such as fracture, joint replacement
- History or a fear of falling.
- Decreased mobility
- Respiratory conditions such as COPD or a chest infection

If you are unsure, then call us. We are here to listen and to help.
