Physiotherapy uses manipulation, massage, exercise and treatments such as ultrasound to:
- restore and improve patients’ movement, activity and independence
- reduce pain
- prevent injury and/or illness.
We adopt what is called a ‘holistic’ approach to healthcare, which means it takes into account factors such as lifestyle, work demands and leisure activity when drawing up the programme that will best help each patient to manage their individual condition.
St Richard's Hospital
Outpatient musculoskeletal physiotherapy services in the Bognor and Chichester areas are provided by Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust. Please visit their website for more information.
The children’s physiotherapy service at Worthing Hospital and St Richard’s Hospital is run by a small team of physiotherapists. We see children up to their 18th birthday but if your child is 12 years of age or older they may be seen in the adult outpatient department at our hospitals or satellite clinics.
