Physiotherapy is concerned with the body, primarily the musculoskeletal system. We are able to accept referrals for :

weakness or tightness of muscles / joints especially when it affects mobility (walking) and positioning

  • Weakness or poorly coordinated muscles that control breathing and   coughing – teach effective breathing and secretion clearance techniques
  • Difficulties with motor control
  • Poor cardiovascular fitness / posture
  • Sensory integration disturbance – if there is dysfunction, especially proprioceptive, tactile or vestibular. Physio can assist students by providing them and staff with tools to modulate sensory systems
  • Equipment needs – standing and walking frames, transfer belts, and seating 1 (basic seating)
  • Difficulties at participating in horse riding and swimming
  • Manual handling
