Our physiotherapists are experts in movement analysis and pain presentations. Their reports reflect not only their knowledge of the pathology of complex injuries, but their ability to relate such injuries to a Claimant’s movement compensations and dysfunctions.

Following a detailed examination of the Claimant, our physiotherapy reports are able to quantify in detail how a Claimant is functioning now as a result of their injury, what impact this has had on them holistically and how all corners of their life have been affected. Their extensive clinical experience enables them to provide an opinion regarding the prognostic aspect of a Claimant’s injury and how this may vary under alternative scenarios and following potential future surgery.

As experts in neuromusculoskeletal and respiratory conditions, our physiotherapists support their cases further by identifying when it may be necessary to involve other health care professionals, e.g. podiatrists and orthotists, who may not be instructed as part of the case but are pivotal to ensuring optimum recovery for the Claimant.

We can provide highly-skilled physiotherapists to prepare both quantum and liability expert reports, and ‘hybrid’ reports, commenting on quantum, condition, prognosis and causation, in relation to complex cases where the Claimant may have pre-existing conditions and vulnerabilities in addition to their index injury.

Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioners

Bush & Co has a network of highly specialised adult and paediatric physiotherapy expert witnesses that includes advanced practitioners and first contact practitioners who provide services to claimant and defendant solicitors and insurers.

Working in an extended role, an advanced physiotherapy practitioner operates with a higher degree of autonomy across the health and social care landscape to enable integrated care and this role encompasses the independent triaging, assessment, evaluation, and diagnosing of patients with highly complex disorders and possible multiple pathologies.

Their objective of maximising the independence of clients remains the same, but advanced practitioners often have leadership and management responsibilities in addition to their duties as physiotherapists and possess the skills to address complex decision-making processes and manage risk in uncertain situations.

Advanced physiotherapists work at a higher level of expertise with extended skills in a specialised clinical area such as injection therapy, with some having additional capabilities such as prescribing rights. They collaborate closely with medical professionals and often act as the first contact practitioners with the authority to order x-rays, scans, and blood tests alongside their responsibilities in managing the client’s rehabilitation.

Often bringing innovative thinking to service delivery and adding value to the traditional elements of physiotherapy, advanced practitioners work across multi-professional or multi-agency teams and their capacity to initiate service improvements in complex and unpredictable contexts with higher levels of accountability makes them central to client rehabilitation plans and well-placed to deliver expert insight and produce physiotherapy expert witness reports for litigation purposes.

Health issues such as musculoskeletal conditions are among the most common cause of work absences and GP appointments, with many sufferers requiring long-term care. At Bush & Co, our team of highly skilled associate physiotherapists operate in a wide number of private, public, and voluntary health and social care settings. In addition to providing expert opinion on neurological and musculoskeletal disorders, they offer the skills and knowledge to undertake cases involving respiratory, Chronic Pain and vestibular conditions.

Within our network of associate physiotherapy expert witnesses, we are also able to provide physiotherapy reports by a specialist pelvic health physiotherapist who is able to provide expert witness physiotherapy reports on postpartum conditions and women’s health including prolapse management and incontinence. We are also able to provide quantum reports for mesh complications, bladder and bowel complications and sexual dysfunction.
