The role of our specialist physiotherapist is critical in helping you regain your independence and quality of life. A tailored approach is vital as no two strokes are the same.


The first step in stroke rehabilitation is a thorough assessment of your physical condition. Our physiotherapist evaluates your strength, range of movement, balance, coordination, tone, and any existing impairments. They also consider your medical history and the type of stroke you have experienced.

Goal Setting

Based on the assessment, our physiotherapist collaborates with you to set realistic and personalised rehabilitation goals. These goals may include improving mobility, regaining independence in daily activities, and reducing pain.

Individualised Treatment Plans

Our physiotherapist creates a tailored treatment plan that addresses your specific impairments and limitations to work towards achieving your goals. This plan may involve a combination of exercises, stretches, and therapeutic techniques.

Gait Training

A significant focus of stroke rehabilitation is helping you relearn how to walk and move safely. Our physiotherapist may work on improving your balance, posture, and walking pattern.

Strength and Endurance Training

You may often experience muscle weakness and decreased stamina. Our physiotherapist designs exercises to build strength and improve endurance. You will also work on cardiovascular fitness and task based exercise.

Range of Movement and Flexibility Exercises

Stroke can lead to muscle tightness, cause increased tone and limited joint mobility. Our physiotherapist uses stretching exercises and manual techniques to improve flexibility and range of motion. You may also be referred to attend a Botox clinic to help with tone management.

Balance and Coordination Training

Impaired balance and coordination are common challenges after a stroke. Our physiotherapist employs exercises and activities to enhance these skills.

Pain Management

If you are experiencing pain related to the stroke or associated conditions, our physiotherapist may use techniques such as manual therapy and heat/cold therapy. The physiotherapist can also liaise with your GP to request a medication review and outline any concerns.

Assistive Devices and Mobility Aids

Our physiotherapist assesses whether assistive devices like sticks, walkers, or orthotics are needed and provides guidance on their proper use.

Education and Home Exercise Programmes

Our physiotherapist educates you and your caregivers on exercises and activities to continue at home. This helps maintain progress between appointments. Daily exercise and the completion of home exercises are vital to ensure you achieve your goals.

Monitoring Progress

Our physiotherapist continually assesses your progress and adjusts the treatment plan as needed to ensure the goals are being met.

Psychological Support

Stroke rehabilitation can be emotionally challenging. Our physiotherapist offers emotional support and motivation to help you stay focused on your recovery.
