There are two main types of Adult physiotherapy. One is the outpatient services of the Coventry Musculoskeletal Service and the Women’s Health Service, and the other is the Community Service, which includes some clinic appointments as well as home visits.
This service is for patients who require a restoration of movement and function when someone is affected by a musculoskeletal injury, illness or disability. We aid the rehabilitation of patients with a musculoskeletal injury through assessing, advising and providing treatment for the problem. It can also help to reduce your risk of musculoskeletal injury or illness in the future.
The service can only be accessed via a referral from a Coventry based GP.
This service is for women who are experiencing continence problems, pelvic organ prolapses, and pelvic pain. Treatment of your symptoms will depend on the type of problem you have and the findings from your individual assessment. Treatments may include advice on diet, fluid intake, bladder retraining and exercise programmes as well as other medical treatment and specialist equipment.
The service can be accessed via a referral from your GP, Nurse, Consultant, Physiotherapist, Midwife or Health Visitor
