Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future. Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach that involves the patient directly in their own care.
To get the most from your treatment, you will be asked to do exercises and to follow advice given by your Physiotherapist.
More information about Physiotherapy can be found at www.csp.uk. All the Physiotherapists working at the Hospital are Chartered Physiotherapists and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Physiotherapists work with both Adults and Children. The Adult Physiotherapy Service is part of the Adult Therapies Clinical Service Unit and work across all sites of Leeds Teaching Hospitals. The Children’s Physiotherapy Service is part of the Children’s Hospital which is based on the Leeds General Infirmary site.
As a teaching hospital we are proud to work with local, national and international physiotherapy students. They may be involved in your care.
