Sessions range between 30 - 60 minutes long and will be seen up to 5 times a week depending on your physical needs and if you require 1 or more Physiotherapist’s in your session. The Physiotherapy team will ensure you have suitable seating and you will be expected to sit out daily as part of your rehabilitation.  Activities and exercises will be expected outside of your therapy sessions as part of your daily routine to aid your rehabilitation.
