A Leading Welsh NeuroPhysiotherapy Clinic has confirmed that physiotherapy and neurophysiotherapy treatments can continue under the new circuit break lockdown rules which came into force across Wales last Friday.
Both physiotherapy and neurophysiotherapy treatments remain unaffected by the rules and the go-ahead to continue with treatments has been confirmed by the industry’s professional body, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists.
“Physiotherapy and neurophysiotherapy are first-line treatments for many healthcare conditions, and private clinics such as NeuroPhysioWales can relieve some of the burden on oversubscribed NHS services at this time – so we are delighted that the Welsh Government and the CSP have given physiotherapy clinics the go ahead to continue treating patients.
“Our clients can be reassured that every recommended precaution is in place to keep them safe during treatment, we are following every guideline laid out by the Society and the Welsh Government. Particularly in the case of neurophysiotherapy treatment, it is really important that regular treatments are maintained or vital progress could be lost.
“As well as continuing to treat existing clients, we are also able to see new clients for women’s physiotherapy and neurophysiotherapy, and we are not geographically restricted by the lockdown rules so patients from Cardiff and Swansea are able to travel to our clinic in Bridgend. Our overwhelming message therefore is, if you are in pain or have loss of function, don’t wait because it could get worse. Like many other private physiotherapy clinics in Wales, we are very much open, and here to help.
