We pride ourselves on being able to provide a specialist level of Physiotherapy care to each patient. At Pontifex Physiotherapy, we won’t be treating more than one patient at a time. We provide one on one consultations in private treatment rooms so everyone will get the attention they deserve. This removes the issue many clinics have of unfairly expecting patients to release personal details with only a thin curtain between them and another patient.
Our standard consultations are 40 minutes, which is also 30% longer than industry standard, giving more time to analyse and treat the condition. We provide customised treatment tables which have additional padding, and are extra wide for less mobile patients. Treatment tables are also heated in the winter months to provide extra comfort for patients.
Our physiotherapists are constantly staying up to date with current research and take pride in providing evidence based treatments for our patients. This includes hands on treatments such as joint mobilisations and soft tissue massage to help manage stiff joints and tight muscles, as well as progressive rehabilitation exercises to improve the strength and flexibility for long term management.
We believe in empowering our patients to self-manage their conditions and injuries. As such, we use the power of technology to give patients quick and easy access to their home exercises via our free smartphone app. The app will guide you through your exercises and demonstrate the correct techniques through videos and an explanation. Apps such as these have been shown to increase patient adherence to their exercise and therefore improve outcomes.
