Physiotherapists treat people of all ages, helping them manage pain and using a number of methods to aid recovery. Our physiotherapy team is an integral part of the service offered at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.
Occupational therapy provides support to people whose health prevents them from doing the activities that matter to them.
Orthoses are devices you wear to either to change the way the body part works whilst moving or provide cushioning or support.
Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity.
