Welcome to SDR Physiotherapy

We are a team of highly specialised physiotherapists who currently work within the Bristol SDR service. We offer one-to-one consultations for patients and families who are exploring the possibility of SDR or have already embarked on their SDR journey. We are able to offer a specialist holistic service specific to your child’s needs.

The range of services we offer is compatible with and complements the Bristol approach to SDR, and we work closely with our consultant colleagues; Mr Pople, Mr R Edwards (Neurosurgeons), Mr G Atherton and Ms Anna Clarke (Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeons). We are also familiar with all of the other SDR programs based in the UK and USA.
