Physiotherapy private services

South Tees provides individualised outpatient physiotherapy on a private basis for musculoskeletal problems, neurological problems and respiratory disorders.

We have a large team of highly specialised physiotherapists who work with patients to help restore movement and function which has been affected by injury, illness or disability.

Neurological physiotherapy

‘Neuro’ physio is a specialism of physiotherapy working solely with people with neurological conditions such as:

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease (PD)
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Acquired brain injuries (ABI)
  • Motor Neurone Disease (MND)
  • Stroke
  • Any other brain or nerve disease

The physios are specialists in neurological conditions and advanced physio assessment and treatment. All the physios have enhanced handling skills for working with this patient group and have completed additional training to become specialists in this area.

Most of the neuro physiotherapists have completed Bobath training, which is a treatment approach for working with neurological conditions. The senior physiotherapists all complete additional post graduate training including MSc modules. The team leader physio has also completed an MSc in advanced clinical practice (neurological rehabilitation).

A number of the therapists also offer advanced techniques such as acupuncture and functional electrical stimulation (FES). Two of the physiotherapists are also qualified Botulinum Toxin injectors and hold a weekly spasticity clinic alongside the rehabilitation consultant to offer specialised spasticity management. The team offer a variety of services from individualised sessions, group sessions, self-management programmes and hydrotherapy.
