What's it all about – why
physiotherapists touch patients
A private healthcare company has taken over the provision of physiotherapy in the NHS near Nottingham.
In what many suspect is a cost-cutting exercise, they have said that 'hands-on' physiotherapy is unnecessary
for many patients and instead they should simply be given written advice on how to treat their condition.
Physiotherapy professional bodies have condemned the move.
At MEND, we feel that a large part of our job is to help
clients understand their condition and learn how to manage it themselves - so we DO provide written
advice from time to time, but never as a substitute for physical therapy.
The power of touch should never be underestimated –
it calms and reassures, allows a patient to feel confident to move more than they would otherwise –
often experiencing a degree of mobility they may not have had for years. Touch enables the physiotherapist

You might be surprised how simple observation by a
trained professional can identify the cause of some of the most persistent problems. Sometimes, just a few
simple exercises, a different way of doing something, or changing your workspace can provide almost instant
relief. At MEND, we believe in the value of expert assessment, early intervention, and healthy
It's what friends are for.
If you, or a friend, have a nagging pain, struggle to do
something that used to be easy, or think that your body is somehow holding you back, please ask for an
initial appointment which can usually be arranged with 24hrs.
