Holy Cross Hospital
Holy Cross Hospital is owned and managed by a charitable company, The Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross of Liege. Most of its work is undertaken on behalf of NHS patients to provide care, treatment and support for those with a wide range of severe disabling conditions. They include head injury, brain damage or disease affecting the nervous system.
The Hospital was founded in 1917 as a sanatorium and has adapted successfully over the years to the changing needs of health care. Today it is recognised as one of the leading centres in the South East for its specialised work and it continues to develop to better meet the needs of those it serves. The recent addition of a hydrotherapy pool is an example.
The Hospital welcomes enquiries individuals, their families or professionals acting on behalf of a patient. Patients are admitted on the basis of their clinical needs without reference to issues such as religion, race or cultural background. More information is available from the Hospitalís own website or by telephone enquiry.
Our dedicated team at the Physiotherapy Centre works to provide an outpatient physiotherapy service to the general public. At initial consultation we take time to complete a fully comprehensive assessment, ensuring your treatment programme is specifically tailored for you. With no need to wait, you receive the right advice when you want it.
Examples of some of the problems we treat:
Physiotherapy is a research-based discipline using expert knowledge of anatomy, physiology and movement, to promote the bodyís natural healing.
Acupuncture is a Chinese technique of inserting fine needles into specific points to stimulate self healing and relieve pain. Treatment is sterile, safe and not painful.
Hydrotherapy is treatment directed by a Physiotherapist, which utilises water for therapeutic effect. It is chosen when conventional exercise is neither suitable nor enjoyable. A hydrotherapy pool is kept at a high temperature of approximately 34 degrees to promote comfort and pain relief.
Hydrotherapy has remedial, psychological and social benefits. A person with limited movement on dry land can experience increased freedom and confidence of movement whilst in the pool. Water flow creates assistance or resistance in exercises as required, while buoyancy decreases the stress on joints and spine. In waist deep water the weight loading on the joints is decreased by approximately 50%.
