Despite the challenges of Covid and changes to the way Chapman Physiotherapy have had to practice, the utilisation of private physiotherapy has been fantastic.
In their aim to keep both staff and patients safe, they have introduced video consultations, pre- assessment telephone screening, ten-minute cleaning breaks between every patient and PPE. This led to a recruitment drive and the business is delighted to introduce three further full-time physiotherapists into the fold. Blue Larkin joined the team in September 2020, with Stephanie Cottam and Emma Clements due to increase their capacity in the next few weeks.
Pain did not cease with the onset of Covid, but the team were all encouraged to decide what was ‘essential’. Unfortunately, for many, pain has increased as access to NHS services has reduced to redistributing staff for Covid.
Part of Chapman Physiotherapy’s screening process has been to educate potential patients to their level of ‘risk’ regarding attendance and enable them to make an informed decision. Likewise, the evidence over the year of reduced face-to-face services has shown that in certain situations outcomes can be compromised. Likewise, with the onset of home working, there has been a significant increase in postural neck and shoulder issues, some resulting in night pain, pins and needles and numbness in the arm.
Such conditions are best evaluated early for a quick recovery and often can be dealt with in a few sessions, with manual therapy, exercise and postural correction and even over video consultation for those who are unable to attend.
The services have evolved over the last 12 months, with many of the changes set to stay such as video appointments and automated sanitising stations at every door. Ultimately, access to physiotherapy is simple, even from the safety of your own home.
The two sites in Doncaster and Bawtry have same day availability and are ready to see you!
Physiotherapy appointments are available 8am-8pm and are £35. So why not look up that forgotten health plan and claim the cost back too?
