Our Croydon Services

The local services in your area include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Physiotherapy for MSK conditions involves the assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, spinal discs, nerves and other structures to keep you moving.

  • PhysioLine
  • In some cases, your GP may refer you to PhysioLine; a contact and assessment service completed over the phone by a Chartered Physiotherapist. PhysioLine has proven to be an extremely effective way for patients to speak with a physiotherapist quickly (usually within 2-4 days) and start managing their problem straightaway. By using PhysioLine you can access specialist guidance and support, while causing as little disruption as possible to your normal routine.

  • CATS
  • Our Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (CATS) is designed for people for whom physiotherapy is not appropriate. This could be for a number of reasons; it could be that their physiotherapy treatment has not been successful, or that their diagnosis is unclear and they need further, more specialist intervention. The CATS service can also order diagnostic tests, such as MRI scans or X-rays if appropriate.
