Is private physio better than NHS?

Dec 6, 2023 | NHS, Physiotherapy, Pricing, Treatments

Physio physiotherapy is on the face of it the same as NHS physiotherapy.  NHS physiotherapy is excellent and private physiotherapy isn’t always an alternative to the service provided by the NHS.  Private physiotherapy often offers physiotherapy quicker and for a longer term.

The NHS has restrictions on the time and amount of physiotherapy that they can provide.  The quality of the physiotherapy that is provided is as good as the private sector, however it is often a stop gap to enable you to get out of hospital or to get you up and moving.

They are often unable to spend the time that is required to provide a longer term fix, or utilise the latest technology and technology to enable accelerated healing.

Having said this many private physios began their careers in the NHS, and have moved into private practice to enable them to provide a different service to clients.

At 3 Way Physio, our team of Physiotherapists have differing specialities ensuring we are able to cover many conditions.
