The Physiotherapy Department of the Spencer Private Hospitals is now open to virtual telephone appointments.

A Physiotherapy team member will take a detailed history, provide subjective and objective assessment and offer a comprehensive guide through your injury and treatment.

Following the initial virtual telephone consultations, a face to face appointment will be arranged if required. We have infection control precautions and measures in place to keep patients and staff members safe.

Please email or call 01843 235019 for information about booking an appointment and any other questions you may have.

We offer treatment to self-pay, medical insured patients.

Specialised Physiotherapy Services:

Headache Clinic:

We have a specialised service which provides treatment for headaches. Our Specialist physiotherapists will assess you thoroughly to find out if there is any neck pain involvement in your headaches. We use specialised manual spinal mobilisation to the upper neck segments in a gentle and safe approach and Acupuncture to help to provide symptomatic relief from head pain. 


Sport injury clinic:

Sport injuries are a common occurrence in people that are active. This can happen by repetitive stress/strain and by traumatic accidents. Areas of the body that could be affected are ligaments, joints, muscles, tendons and bones. Our skilled physiotherapists will be able to help during your journey to recovery. Our aim is to restore you back to your hobbies and sports you enjoy playing.

Our specialist Physiotherapists will offer you a specialist evidence-based approach in the management of the following common sport injuries:

  • Tennis Elbow: Tendonitis is the irritation and inflammation of tendon tissue in your elbow and is common in golfers, especially in their dominant arm. Tennis elbow is an injury to the outer tendon and is thought to be caused by over-extending your swing. Pain from tennis elbow is around your outer elbow and your forearm. Golfer’s elbow is an injury to the inner tendon and can be caused by striking the ground first during your shot, or overusing your forearm muscles to grip, flex, and rotate your wrist and arm when you swing. Pain from golfer's elbow will be focused on the inside of the elbow and forearm.


  • Knee pain: Knee pain can be caused overtime by the excessive strain and repetition placed on vulnerable knee joints to stabilise the rotation of your hip at the beginning of your swing. Common sports knee injuries include ACL and meniscus tears. These can result in severe pain and loss of function.


  • Shoulder pain: Playing sports can put a lot of strain on the muscles, tendons, and joints in your shoulders and may be prone to overuse injuries such as inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons, impingement syndrome and arthritis, and strain and sprain injuries. In extreme cases, you can even dislocate your shoulder if your swing is too aggressive. Shoulder injuries can be very painful and affect your swing.


  • Wrist injuries: The repetitive motions of tennis and golf and a high-speed swing can cause overuse of your extensor and flexor wrist tendons especially in your dominant arm. DeQuervain's tendonitis is one of the most common wrist injuries in golf. It’s an inflammation of the tendons in the wrist closest to your thumb caused by gripping your club and turning your wrist whilst swinging.


Golf injuries:

Our Chartered Physiotherapists will thoroughly examine and tell you about causes of golf injuries and steps you can take to avoid them. The common golf injuries are back injury, elbow tendonitis, knee, shoulder pain and wrist injuries. Most golf injuries are preventable with the help of our seasoned physiotherapists who will assess, diagnose and put together a treatment plan with you.


Tennis injuries:

Our expert physiotherapists can help with most common tennis injuries. From shoulder injuries to knee pain or tendon problems, get the expert view on common tennis injuries and how to overcome them. The severity and impact of injuries caused by tennis can be mitigated by seeking for the support of our Chartered Physiotherapists. They will guide you from initial phase following injury to the end of phase of return to full recovery by performing a thorough assessment of muscles and joint function and develop a tailor-made program of rehabilitation to full recovery and prevention of re-injury.


Rehabilitation of back and neck pain:

Neck and back pain tend to have a substantial health and economic burden on the sufferers and are the leading cause of years lived with disability. Many of the cases progressed to persistent or recurrent pain as they do not recover from acute phase.

Our physiotherapist will offer the best evidence-based approach to resolving this burden for you. Our treatment approaches include exercise prescription, education/advice, psychological treatment and lifestyle interventions.


Group Rehabilitation Classes:

At the Spencer Private Hospital, we have an excellent team of physiotherapists who can help with 1-to-1 and small group rehabilitation classes.  Our team goes above and beyond in the treatment room and ensure you reach your treatment goals, recovery and achieve a level of physical fitness. The 1-to-1 session with your physiotherapist will run through your rehab program and establish baseline measurement to monitor your progress. The physiotherapist will also advise on the recommended number of required sessions within a period of 6 weeks that help you gain maximum recovery benefits.


Acupuncture Clinic:

We are fortunate to have staff who use acupuncture as an adjunct to the routine physiotherapy modalities and who offers specialist assessment and treatments for patients at our facility. These physiotherapists are fully (accredited) members of AACP and can provide acupuncture treatments for musculoskeletal conditions.

Acupuncture is a popular modality and is commonly used alongside exercise and advice.
