COVID-19 pandemic and Physiotherapy
Face-to-face Physiotherapy is now possible providing strict measures and procedures are carried out to minimise the risk of spreading potential infection. These measures and procedures have been set out by both The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and Public Health England. For patients receiving treatment at lofte Physio the key changes will be;
- A health screening questionnaire to be completed prior to consultation
- Use of personal protective equipment by the physiotherapist
- Compulsory hand washing of the patient on entering and leaving the building
- Protected time between appointments to clean the treatment room
During this time, virtual consultations and outdoor running analysis will continue to be offered
Most private healthcare providers are covering virtual and face-to-face consultations
If you would like to see a physiotherapist but are unsure if a face-to-face appointment is appropriate please contact us directly

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
Strength and conditioning may be incorporated into your treatment since it dramatically helps to reduce your risk of injury and improve your performance in any sports you may be involved in. It also helps to fend off the aches and pains of sedentary working hours that many of us are victims of! Your physiotherapist will take time to coach you and to select the exercises, repetitions and frequency that will benefit your body most and specifically target areas that may have led to injury.
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles through a person’s skin at specific points on the body, to various depths. If you are comfortable with this, acupuncture, often targeting myofascial trigger points, may be used to enhance or compliment the effect of other interventions such as massage or manipulation.
