Physiotherapy addresses problems with movement dysfunction, and pain.

We work in a variety of health care settings at MRI including Intensive care, stroke recovery, rehabilitation, care of the elderly, heart and respiratory problems and musculoskeletal injuries.

Outpatient Services include:

  • Treatment for adult musculoskeletal injuries such as sports injuries, whiplash, back problems
  • Gym classes including anterior cruciate ligament rehabilitation
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation
  • Respiratory and neuro outpatients

Community services include:

  • Neuro and Orthopaedic Outreach where therapy is carried out within patients homes and sometimes workplaces.


In-patient referrals are via the ward you are being treated on. Out-patient referrals are via a CMFT consultant.
