The majority of patients who attend the Police Treatment Centres do so to receive intensive physiotherapy.
Each patient is thoroughly assessed by a physiotherapist on admission so that an individually tailored package of treatment can be developed. Patients are encouraged to participate in education and exercise classes, and make use of the facilities which include an exercise gym, swimming and hydrotherapy pools.
Treatment provided at the centres is holistic and the nursing team has an important role to play. The charity's nurses promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and encourage patients to take a more proactive approach in managing their health. As well as offering well-person checks and advice on topics such as healthy eating, regular education workshops are also held giving useful information on topics including sleep problems and dealing with stress.
For some patients, complementary therapy may be of significant benefit and will be offered depending on the individuals circumstances. Each of our centres is proud to offer a Patient Support Advisor who is based on site with the nursing team.
