Sussex Physio provide local people with trusted physiotherapy assessment and personalised treatment, in the comfort and convenience of their own home or residential setting. For many, travelling to appointments is difficult and we feel that being seen in your own environment can help treatments and advice be tailored to fit in with your lifestyle.
We specialise in providing rehabilitation and advice for a range of problems or conditions, such as mobility or balance problems, post-operative issues, regaining function after an illness or fall, breathing difficulties, long term neurological conditions (eg Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or Stroke), living with and beyond cancer, dementia and end of life care.
Sussex Physio can help you maximise function, maintain your independence and cherish enjoyment in everyday life!
Physiotherapy can help you recover your strength, fitness, movement, function and confidence after suffering any of the following:
An operation I An injury I A fall I A hospital stay I Long period of inactivity I Chemotherapy or radiotherapy I An illness alongside a long term health condition I A neurological diagnosis of a stroke I Multiple sclerosis I Parkinson’s Disease.
We understand that accessing Physiotherapy when you need it, is essential in recovering quickly. Sussex Physio will assess your needs and use a range of skills to get you on the road to recovery and independence. Assessments and treatments will be adapted to suit your needs.
Some people choose to stay at a family member’s home or a residential setting for respite temporarily. This can sometimes make arranging Physiotherapy difficult as you are not in your usual area. Sussex Physio do not require a referral from a hospital or GP, making access to the treatment you need simpler. We are happy to liaise with the hospital therapists or Consultants as needed and refer you onto services in your own locality when you choose to return home. This makes discharge and returning home less stressful.Book a Rehabilitation Appointment

We work closely with family and care home staff, to make sure our treatment plan is realistic and sensible and that exercises, techniques and recommendations we make form part of the daily care plan.
We know it can be difficult having to make the sometimes rushed decision about family members moving to a new home and that it can be unsettling for all involved.
