Established in 2006, Nutwood Therapies is a practice combining Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy to provide specialist care.
At Nutwood Therapies our aim is to provide specialist expert care. We like to think we go one step further to ensure the best possible assessment and treatment. We have links with local consultants so if it is something we cannot treat we wont waste your time and money and will refer on. We can refer you for diagnostic tests like MRI scans*. We keep our knowledge up to date and use the latest assessment and treatment methods. Our personal service means that our clients feel valued and fully in control of their rehab. *self funding clients only, your medical insurance may insist on a GP referral in some cases
Why choose physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the only treatment and assessment recognised and deployed by the NHS. It has a scientific basis with treatments and assessments based on research and clinical reasoning. Physiotherapists use their skills to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and maintain recovery. Most injuries, once treated should not require maintenance top up treatments.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapists aim to restore function after injury or illness. They encourage independent living and function, recommending aids or adaptations when necessary to help to achieve this.
What is Hand Therapy?
Hand therapy is a specialist subsection of both occupational and physiotherapy. Our hand therapists work as generic practitioners meaning that they both have skills such as splinting and joint mobilisations so you only require one appointment. It is important after hand operations or injury that you see a specialist as they will know the limitations of your complaint and be able to safely yet effectively rehabilitate you back to full function. Our practioners are members of the British Association of Hand Therapists (BAHT).
