Best practice:

Whilst we endeavour to remain conversant with all the latest research, at the same time, we also take great care to ensure that we adapt this evidence to fit the needs of each individual client. We are flexible and adapt our approach according to our professional experience.

Rather than a one size fits all approach, we consider each individual’s presentation; their specific symptoms and how these affect their activity levels and overall wellbeing.

We pride ourselves in collecting information regarding the outcomes of our programmes for clients (for example, 89% improvement rating in experience of vitality for those clients completing a Vitality360 rehabilitation programme).

and our expert clinicians’ specialism in this field:

Our track record shows that these interventions increase people’s capacity to do more than they could do at the beginning of treatment.  The interventions are not necessarily curative but there is, in our experience, a recovery in terms of vitality or quality of life for the person involved.

All our Clinicians are registered with the appropriate professional bodies
