Physiotherapy is a key service for those with physical impairments resulting from injury or disease.
Physiotherapy aims to help patients regain their full physical abilities or make best use of impaired function. A physiotherapist uses their skills to assess and treat conditions through the application of specialist techniques.
In some cases they advise patients how to self manage their condition / symptoms using home programmes and health education / information.
A physiotherapy service is provided at Balham Park by a physiotherapist from St George’s Hospital on a Tuesday and Thursday. If you feel you may benefit from physiotherapy please make an appointment to discuss your symptoms with your GP. They can then advise you on how to access the service.
You will either be seen at the surgery or at St George’s Hospital. However, some services such as women’s health, paediatric physiotherapy and neurological physiotherapy are based at St George’s Hospital. Should you require these services or there is a significant waiting list at the surgery you will be seen at St George’s Hospital.
