Peninsula Community Health
 

Physiotherapy

 

Active Lady Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury or disability.
Physiotherapy can be particularly beneficial if you are suffering from low back pain, neck pain, recent injuries such as strains and sprains, or joint and muscular pain. It also has a key role in the treatment of continence problems.

 

All our physiotherapists are highly experienced Musculoskeletal Specialist Physiotherapists and we have clinics throughout the whole of Cornwall.

Changes in the way to access physiotherapy for lower back or neck pain
The body that commissions health services in Cornwall, NHS Kernow, has changed the way that patients who are suffering with back or neck pain can be referred to physiotherapy. As a result, Peninsula Community Health is no longer able to accept self referral for patients with lower back or neck pain. Please see your GP to get a referral prior to contacting or attending any of our physiotherapy departments.

Self Referral Form available HERE (Self refer is not available for neck and back pain)
