Specialist Physiotherapy Service - Intellectual Disabilities Services

Physiotherapists help people reach their full physical potential, so that they can be as independent as possible.

The key aims of physiotherapy are to:

  • improve movement
  • promote physical ability
  • maintain good body posture

Service users will be seen in the best place for them. This might be at home, in day centres, group homes, supported living, clinics, or inpatient areas.

We work with adults who have an intellectual disability in the City and in the County. Car parking is available at all of our sites.
