Event/Service information

The service provides goal focused physiotherapy sessions to clients with a diagnosis of MS who require assistance in managing symptoms related to their MS.
The service consists of an initial one to one assessment followed by one to one or group treatment sessions according to clinical need as discussed at the initial assessment.
Sessions vary for each person and focus on improving or recovering specific movement following a relapse, a maintenance programme of exercises, stretches and other manual therapy or education and advice to the client and their family/carer. Relaxation sessions are also available.
These sessions can take place in the gymnasium or the hydrotherapy pool depending on the client's personal requirements and/or preferences. Hydrotherapy tends to be in a group setting where as work in the gym can be one to one or in a group setting.
