Conditions we treat
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a programme or exercise and education for people with a long-term lung condition
A pulmonary rehab programme may improve a patient’s health by reducing breathlessness, providing ways to control the disease and by improving the patient’s ability to carry out daily activities, such as washing and dressing. We can offer a physical exercise programme, designed for people with lung conditions and tailored for you. This is designed to improve your muscle strength, so you can use the oxygen you breathe more efficiently and help you cope better with feeling out of breath.
We provide physiotherapy to people who have joint problems resulting in pain and reduced mobility. This can include people who require surgery, have had surgery, or are looking to try another approach.
Falls are a distressing and unfortunately all too common occurrence in some older people . However, falls are not an inevitable consequence of getting older. We can assess you in your home environment and advise on exercise and activities that should help you to recover from any falls you have experienced and also prevent further falls.
Physiotherapy can help by improving balance and strength and bone strength. This can make you feel more confident about going out and about. JLinks physiotherapists can also advise you on activities to suit your own personal needs.
We can assist you to build up strength, stamina and improve your balance and general wellbeing prior to surgery. We can assist to ensure you and your home environment are prepared for your surgery.
Neurophysiotherapy is designed to treat conditions that originate in the brain or nervous system. Conditions are varied and may include Stroke, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Acquired Brain Injury, as well as those who have had surgery.
We provide expert neurophysiotherapy which includes rehabilitation as well as maintenance exercise programmes and other symptom control management.
These conditions often come with a unique set of challenges such as poor balance, muscle weakness and tremor. Walking may be difficult or impossible. Physiotherapy is often helpful in improving posture and balance and strengthening muscles which can often assist with everyday activities.
People with neurological conditions may find physiotherapy useful even if they have been managing well for a while. Some people may find day to day activities are becoming increasingly more difficult such as getting out of bed or walking. A physiotherapist will assess walking, muscle strength, muscle length, balance and posture. We can teach you how to improve your movement and function at home. We can offer advice and support for you, your family, and carers.
We can help people with a variety of conditions. If you want to know if we can assist you, please contact us and we will be willing to discuss your needs.
