Hobbs South West
Our spacious premises include a purpose-built residential 2 bedroom flat. Designed with full wheelchair access, it allows adults and children to receive intensive rehabilitation.
At Hobbs South West we provide outpatient physiotherapy and rehabilitation services including neuropsychology and daycare for neurological conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Cerebral Palsy and Acquired Brain Injuries for adults and children.
Our centre near Shepton Mallet, Somerset, was set up in October 2009 in partnership with a local property developer, David Million who, at the age of 45, suffered a stroke which left him paralysed down his right side. His rehabilitative work with Hobbs Rehabilitation, combined with the lack of facilities locally, led him to take the decision to join forces with them, which resulted in the opening of Hobbs South West in 2009.
As well as the “standard” neurological treatments offered, Hobbs South West specialises in treatment for Sports Injuries, Orthopaedic and Rheumatological conditions including post-operative rehabilitation.
