About Physio Solutions

Physio solutions is a new private physiotherapy practice established in 2011 by Bill Hopkinson who previously worked in the NHS for 26 years. Bill qualified as a physiotherapist in 1981 and since then has worked in a number of areas including:

  • Barrow in Furness General Hospital, Cumbria
  • Barrow Rugby League Club, Cumbria
  • Margate/Ramsgate Hospitals, Kent
  • Laundon House Clinic, Sleaford, Lincolnshire

In his most recent position at Laundon House Clinic, Bill provided an outpatient physiotherapy service for the major hospitals in the area including Lincoln County (Lincoln), Pilgrim Hospital (Boston), Grantham Hospital (Grantham) and specialist hospitals such as Peterborough Hospital and Queen’s Medical Centre (Nottingham). The service also accepted referrals from GPs in Sleaford and the surrounding areas.

As an out-patient physiotherapist working in Sleaford, Bill was able to treat a wide range of conditions, giving him a broad base of experience not only in working with a typical out-patient caseload of orthopaedic referrals (from simple problems such as post operative therapy, sports injuries and fracture problems to the complexities of back and neck conditions) but also treating amputees, respiratory and neurological conditions (e.g. strokes).

The treatment principles of the practice are holistic – in other words, the whole person. A thorough assessment is essential to identify the root cause – early diagnosis and effective intervention make the biggest difference to a successful outcome. Bill is keen that every patient should be given the knowledge and understanding of their condition to prevent problems recurring, equipping everyone with the ability to self manage should the pain return in the future. A self help strategy for lasting benefit is the ultimate goal.

Little known truths about Physiotherapy

  • With uncomplicated fractures, you can start exercises whilst in plaster so you need less physiotherapy once the plaster is removed.
  • The first time you experience a bad back due to lifting/bending seek help from a physiotherapist immediately, to avoid repeated, prolonged episodes. Once you understand the cause of your pain, self management is the best way forward.
  • Who would have thought that physiotherapy can help with migraines, headaches and irritable bowel syndrome?
  • Early physiotherapy intervention with toe deformities (bunions and hammer toe) can help to prevent surgery.
  • As with most things, the longer a problem is left the more difficult it is to treat.
  • Many physical problems in later life can be traced back to traumas such as whiplash in earlier life. Therefore, all whiplash injuries, however minor, should be treated by a physiotherapist to avoid problems in the future.
