THE RST PHYSIOTHERAPY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
Whilst you don’t have to be as dedicated as an Olympic athlete to reap the benefits of good physiotherapy, having the opportunity to learn how to look after your body post paralysis is crucial. Unfortunately the cost associated with long term physiotherapy is a massive hurdle for many.
Our scholarship programme is designed to help individuals with SCI, living in the UK, access activity based physio. It’s designed to give some help and guidance to those facing up to the life changing paralysis.
THE PRIME PHYSIO SPECIALIST THERAPY CENTRE – CAMBRIDGE
Prime Physio is an award winning specialist therapy centre with a focus on spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions. Marrianne has enjoyed working with Prime since they first opened their doors and its been the home of our scholarship programme since 2013.
Short term – We have a short term programme for individuals who live too far away to visit weekly. The course is designed to give some guidance and input to take away and work on at home. We have had short term scholars visit from all over the UK.
Long term – Our long term programme is designed to help individuals access Prime Physio weekly, long term.
If you’re interested in our programme and Prime, drop us a line. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In recent years we have enjoyed expanding our physio support for individuals with SCI at other centres in the U.K.
Since 2019 have sponsored a number of individuals to enrol in the ‘Life after paralysis’ course run by our friends at Gym Possible in Newcastle, in association with the Neural Pathways therapy team.
In 2020 we also sponsored our first scholar to work with the Flex Health physio team in Hull and hope to expand this in 2021.
