A physiotherapist is available at the hospice to help with any mobility and physical needs, including exercises and advice on any aids that a patient may require.
Physiotherapy can help with:
- Improving strength and mobility through exercise
- Assessing whether a patient would benefit from appropriate walking aids such as sticks, walking frames or wheelchairs
- Reducing pain through movement, positioning and use of a TENS machine (a small battery operated unit which reduces pain by stimulating sensory nerves)
