Winchester Health Clinic is a physiotherapy clinic that provides high quality assessment and treatment. We believe in the power of education and are passionate that students are at the heart of the clinic.
Our core mission is to ensure high-quality physiotherapy assessment and treatment is accessible to everyone – this is reflected in the low cost of appointments. We focus on the empowerment of patients, educating them about their condition and giving them strategies to not only reduce the pain but prevent injuries from reoccurring. Our vision is to expand our service to be able to offer nutrition and dietetics clinics, occupational therapy clinics and sports therapy clinics – stay tuned for further updates on this.
We provide an environment which supports education and offers a premium service bringing cutting-edge, evidence-based physiotherapy to our clients. Our clinics will often be run by physiotherapy students, always overseen by a qualified member of staff.
We are delighted to now be offering an Aquatic Physiotherapy Class in the Winchester Sport and Leisure Park, hydrotherapy pool. The class is delivered over a four-week block, led by our experienced physiotherapist, and supported by our physiotherapy students. The class is perfectly suited for those individuals who are struggling with land-based exercises, pre or post operation or even looking to improve their balance and co-ordination.
You must be able to enter the pool independently and the class will be a supportive environment to help you achieve your goals, as well as having some fun along the way! The class is currently being ran on a Friday at 11am, although we are looking to expand our offerings so if you are interested but unable to make it, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each session costs £40
University of Winchester staff, Winchester Leisure Centre members and selected partners cost £30
University of Winchester Students are able to get a discounted price of £20
Your first appointment will be 45 minutes long. During which the physiotherapist or student will establish the background of your pain or discomfort, potential causes for this, and to formulate a treatment plan.
This will involve a mix of both talking and a physical examination. A physical examination involves the therapist looking at your movement and strength, as well as often palpating, or feeling, the area. The purpose of the physical examination is to establish which structure is causing the issue or discomfort.
Please come to your appointment appropriately dressed. Your clothes need to allow the therapist to assess the issue appropriately, for example a vest top for a shoulder assessment, or shorts for a lower limb assessment. If appropriate clothing is not worn, the physiotherapist may not be able to properly assess you.
