Recommend a physio in Hampshire
« on: August 09, 2008, 04:07:26 PM »
Hi all,

I have a partially torn ACL. I had an MRI and some physio on the NHS but I don;t think I got the best treatment I shoudl have gotten.

I now want to privatley pay for a decent physio to give me some advice.

I have seen the list of knee specilist clinics on this site but they are all way to far away from me (Southampton) - there are a lot of physios listed around here but I really want a knee specialist.

My last physio just gave me a list of exercises to do (NHS) and said she wouldn't need to see me again so it is plausible I woudl olyl have to see a physio once btu I don't wnat to make a long trip up north somewhere only to find they want me back multipel times

Any recommendations?

I am at the stage where I can run and play football but I still don't feel comfortable in my knee, I suppose I need some final tweaking and a decent exercise plan.


Pricewise about 45 MAX a session.

edit - to add

I had my MRI scan in November 2007. I udnerstand that coudl be a big cost when going to see a new private physio so it is best if I get my one fro mthe NHS

Is it hard to get copies of this kind of stuff fro mthe NHS

And will an MRI that old still be relevant?

Hi Mouk,

I know a fantastic Physio in Camberley, Surrey. He works for the NHS part time but also works at a private practice part time. I have always had him as my NHS physio after all my knee ops but at one stage I went to him privately whilst waiting for another op (we all know how long we have to wait sometimes on the NHS) to try to alleviate the pain. He also goes abroad at times to work for a football/Ruby team as their physio. Would Camberley be too far to travel?

hey Mouk - why dont u air your views to your current physio and see if they come up with better stuff !

Maybe you are looking for something that you should be doing yourself - the exercises are pretty standard - it is you that has to keep on and on doing them !

Also, maybe you need to go and see a sports physio - assuming you are getting back to a particular sport - they will be able to direct you more specifically - but like I said if you chat to your current physio they should be able to sort u out or even direct you to a more appropriate person within their department .

The other way to find out it to speak to other patients as to who their physio was to guage who might be able to help better - your GP would be another good source of information as he will have had feedback from other patients and can write a physio request for you elsewhere !
good Luck

Camberley is a bit too far unfortunatley.

I don;t have contact with my last physio anymore as I was pretty much told to go off and do my own exercises.

I have a few numbers out of the yellow pages which look good, so i will try them

but any personal recommendations welcome.
