As a centre of excellence, MNC advise NHS and private sector therapists with one to one consultations. The treating therapist may request this service for a variety of reasons, such as:
- To help progress treatment when the patients therapist feels they have reached a therapy plateau with respect to their treatment skills
- To help develop the requesting therapists handling and clinical reasoning skills
- To advise a therapist who does not have specialist skills in neurological physiotherapy. This might be a musculoskeletal physiotherapist or a personal trainer
- To give a second opinion in the case of conflicting reports regarding a patients potential. This may be in conjunction with a litigation case
The consultation may take place at MNC, in a hospital setting if the patient is still an in-patient, in another private clinic/hospital or even in the patient’s home.
Often the patients and therapists may travel from long distances, even abroad, and so the consultation may well not be just over one session but could be part of an intensive block of treatment.
The consultations may occur as a one off or at regular intervals to help develop and progress a treatment plan.
If the treating therapist is unable to accompany the patient then we can send a written report with videos, to help guide follow up treatment of your patient.
Are you a therapist or do you know someone who has further potential, and would appreciate expert guidance? If so, please contact MNC today to enquire about our consultation service.
Testimonials From Visiting Therapists:
I’m an Italian Bobath-neuro physio with years of experience in the field, however when faced with a particularly complex or an unusual case, I make it a point of contacting Linzi Meadows for a second opinion because of her high standing in the Bobath field.
Last month I took one of my patients from Italy to MNC so that Linzi could evaluate his condition and offer her assessment. By comparing my previous assessment with hers, I was able to acquire an in-depth understanding which allowed me to develop a clinical reasoning and a subsequent therapy that was most beneficial for the patient.
For five consecutive days Linzi and I applied the therapy agreed upon, focused on improving functional walking.
Although she was clearly in charged of the therapy because of her superior experience, she shared her knowledge with me every step of the way with the result that I felt I was a full member of the team.
Thanks to her invaluable intervention, the patient’s condition has improved significantly and I have been personally enriched by the experience.
Francesco Inversini (May 2017).
My annual visits to Manchester Neurotherapy Centre have contributed to develop the capacity for analysis and discussion of clinical cases and the possibility of exploring strategies and facilitation procedures of high level of expertise.
The enormous competence of the group of physiotherapists (working here) coupled with their constant “well receive” make this “clinical placement” an enriching experience on a professional and personal level. The clinical cases benefit from a clear explanation and organization of the intervention goals with complementary strategies that can be transposed to the different personal contexts without ever failing to perceive the individual needs of each case. I can only end with a huge, thank you.
