Established in 2014 and based in Fleet, Foundations Physio provide high-quality home physiotherapy for people in Woking and the surrounding Surrey area. We specialise elderly rehabilitation and neurological physiotherapy, including physiotherapy for stroke recovery.
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function, manage pain and prevent disease. It is great for people of all ages and helps older patients and individuals with neurological problems especially, through manual therapy, exercise, movement, education and advice. However, with all these benefits many people can be put off going to see a physiotherapist perhaps due to mobility or confidence issues. This where home physiotherapy comes in.
Physiotherapy at home or in a care establishment in Woking allows treatment to take place in a more convenient and comfortable environment for the patient. There are many advantages, a few of which we have looked into below. Do not hesitate to get in touch for more information. We specialise in neurological physiotherapy and elderly rehabilitation.

We develop tailored plans with the aim to provide effective care whilst giving you back independence.
3. Comfortable and familiar environment
