Physiotherapy and occupational therapy in Cheltenham

Our therapy suite at Gloucestershire House is kitted out to provide you with the care and support you need so that you can become more independent in all areas of daily living.

Following COVID guidance our therapy suite is currently closed.

From getting you a bit more mobile to finding you the right equipment, our dedicated team is here to help you set and achieve your goals. Everyone is different, so we tailor our services to make sure we’re providing the best support for you.

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists use movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice to support people who have been affected by injury, illness or disability.

They maintain health for people of all ages, helping you to manage pain and prevent disease.

The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling you to stay in work while helping you remain independent for as long as possible.

What is occupational therapy?

Think about your day-to-day life — would you be able to cope or live fully if you didn’t have access to the internet? Or couldn’t get out of bed in the morning?

Occupational therapy aims to improve your ability to do everyday tasks. It provides practical support to empower you to facilitate recovery and overcome barriers preventing you from doing the activities that matter to you.
