In 2019, the practice invested in a GYMNA 400 Combination Therapy Unit. The GYMNA 400 utilises electro, ultrasound, and laser therapy in one device, allowing the therapists at Physiohelp4you to deliver pain-free treatments for a multitude of different diseases. No other practice in the area has technology like this and it is helping to set Physiohelp4you apart from their peers. Physiotherapy can be an essential medical service, not just for the patient’s physical wellbeing, but also for their mental health. As well as restoring function and relieving pain, physiotherapy is incredibly effective in the management of anxiety. The reduction of muscle tension can enhance the patient’s ability to sleep and therefore helping to boost their mood and self-esteem. These benefits can be vital to patients in many different high-stress or physically laborious occupations. This is especially true for NHS workers who are currently on the front line of the Covid pandemic. The high-pressure and often physically demanding environment in which they work can lead to a plethora of physical and mental health problems. Having access to effective physiotherapy care can be crucial in both improving NHS workers’ quality of life and ensuring that they are still able to work. Physiohelp4you understands the importance of their services for health workers, and in response Physiohelp4you to the pandemic they have been offering a 20% discount to all NHS employees for life, not just whilst they are working in the NHS. In addition to being beneficial in supporting health services workers, physiotherapy is also proving to be critical in the rehabilitation of Covid-19 patients. Physiotherapy practitioners have been providing essential care to patients in every stage of Covid treatment and recovery. Their services have helped patients in intensive and acute care units, as well as those home settings after they have been discharged. Because of this high demand for physiotherapy and rehabilitation, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) is urging governments and health providers to help protect these services that are so important to the Covid response. Some physio practitioners were forced to halt their services in the first phase of pandemic restrictions, and this is still true for many of them. According to CSP, as of September 2020 only 15% of their members reported that the services they normally provide are back to being fully functional. Fortunately, the UK government recognises the necessity of physiotherapy practices like Physiohelp4you in recovering from the pandemic. Preceding England’s November 2020 lockdown measures, the government announced that physiotherapy practices were to remain open, as they are an imperative medical service. This means that Physiohelp4you can continue to deliver their invaluable care. Practitioners such as Maggie and Kirsten will be integral to the country’s recovery, not just for Covid patients themselves, but for those whose health condition has deteriorated as a result of lockdown. Their expertise, proficiency and dedication to their work is irreplaceable. Contact: Maggie Mugglestone Company: Physiohelp4you Website: www.physiohelp4you.com
