From time to time other physiotherapists come across patients who are not improving as expected, or have minimal experience in treating patients with a particular condition. In this case Physio.co.uk can hold joint treatment sessions with the physiotherapist and the patient. In this way the physiotherapist retains the patient, develops new skills in a particular area, and the patient receives the best possible treatment. Joint sessions can be held as regularly as required and can even be arranged as one off appointments. This service is often used by physiotherapists and patients who live in remote areas, abroad, or areas that lack certain specialist physiotherapists.

Our specialist physiotherapists perform joint treatment sessions alongside other professionals and in doing so can increase the effectiveness and outcome of the patient's treatment. The advice provided in the session can be used by the professional in future treatment sessions.
