Our approach

The Atlas Physio Centre also offers support, training and guidance to patients’ families and carers, who are often overwhelmed and placed under extreme stress due to having to bear multiple responsibilities simultaneously, including assisting them with many physical tasks and providing day-to-day care, love and emotional support. The Centre’s multi-disciplinary team will enable patients to regain their physical and life skills and increase their mobility, giving them and their families a better quality of life.

The physiotherapy programme focuses on basic mobility issues such as standing, walking, climbing up and down stairs, reaching, bending and lifting, or using a wheelchair, all in a fun but professional manner. The highly qualified team at Atlas Physio uses their experience and training from years of working in a variety of settings to create a service and provide therapy, using tried and tested methods.

Each patient undergoes an individual assessment to determine what treatment is best suited to their current capacities and to then further their development in the most effective way possible. The therapy programme will incorporate one or more of the therapies listed below, depending on the outcome of the initial assessment.
