TherapyMatters offers individualised rehabilitation for people following complex injuries and polytrauma.
Polytrauma is a term used to describe multiple traumatic injuries that may have happened from, for example, a serious car accident, accident at work, or assault, along with many other examples of traumatic situations.
These injuries will often include brain and / or spinal cord damage, and several bony fractures, and soft tissue damage. The complexity of this type of injury is often overwhelming to the person and their families, but at TherapyMatters we are very experienced at working with this level of complexity and can provide an effective way forwards. People with these complex injuries often have difficulties with movement, balance, strength, and functioning within their daily activities – together with more hidden problems such as cognitive and decision making difficulties. There are often more complex pieces of equipment and home management packages required, and a care team to support the person within their rehabilitation programme.
Our team of highly specialised Physiotherapists utilise their movement analysis skills and expertise to create individualised treatment programmes. By implementing hands-on movement techniques, strength and conditioning techniques, and working to practice and restore function, we are able to help the person start to put their lives back together.
The TherapyMatters team of Specialist Neurological Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists have several decades of rehabilitation experience between us. We work to help people improve in their recovery, reaching their fullest possible potential in function and independence.

We are able to discuss your client’s particular needs with you on the phone or in person at the clinic if you prefer, so that you are confident that you have handed over any important information to us.
We will send you a copy of our Terms and Conditions, so that you are able to identify what our therapy input will cost. We can organise an Initial Physiotherapy Assessment within a very short period of time (most often within 5-10 days) and feedback the key findings to you as requested.
We will provide you with a ‘post-assessment physiotherapy report’ if requested, which will outline the key findings, realistic goals to be working towards, and our recommendations for future physiotherapy and occupational therapy input. We can calculate our predicted costs for your client at this stage, if requested.
We are able to provide individualised and targeted physiotherapy programmes to work towards your clients goals and work this alongside a comprehensive Home Exercise Programme that will ensure they are getting the most out of their rehabilitation.
We have years of experience working alongside legal teams, assisting with clinician therapy statements, and joining MDT case conferences, and writing Progress Reports, to produce the best rehabilitation environment for the individual, as needed.
If you want to discuss anything further or need more detail please phone us and we will be happy to discuss your client and their needs, to find the best solution for their individual rehabilitation programme.
