FAQS - SDR AND CEREBRAL PALSY PHYSIOTHERAPY

How do I know if a Physiotherapist is fully qualified?

To use the title Chartered Physiotherapist you must be a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). These are our professional/regulatory bodies and members adhere to a strict code of practice. By choosing to see a Chartered and HPC registered Physiotherapist you have the security of being advised/treated by a competent clinician. Chris Barton is registered with both and you may check his registration at www.hcpc-uk.org.

Will I have to do anything specific between treatments?
