Physio-Neuro specialises in treating people with a neurological condition, which is a specialised branch of physiotherapy. Your local physiotherapy practice is likely to be a specialist in the treatment and management of sports injuries, muscle sprains, neck and back pain.
A Chartered Physiotherapist has completed an approved course of study and is regulated by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP). They are highly trained and accountable for their actions. They are entitled to put the initials MCSP after their name. It is illegal for anyone to call themselves a physiotherapist, if they are not a member of the CSP. This information can be checked at ww.csp.co.uk.
A State Registered Physiotherapist is registered with the Health Professions Council, which is the government regulatory body. Only Chartered Physiotherapists can register on the physiotherapy list, and will be able to put the initials SRP after their name. These details can be checked on www.hpc.co.uk.

Home might be your own home, that of a relative you are staying with, a nursing or residential home or any other setting other than an NHS hospital.
