From your very first visit to our practice, we can assist you with the most important aspects of the therapy you need, offering continuous advice and support as well as individual programmes for you to follow at home. The following pages outline key information on our practice and therapies.
Your first appointment: what should I bring with me?
It's best to bring casual, comfortable sportswear. If you have a prescription from your doctor for the physiotherapeutic treatment, you should bring this along as well as any relevant X-rays.
Your first appointment: what should I expect?
An initial appointment will always start with a warm introduction and your therapist will ask you lots of questions about your symptoms. It is important to understand what is causing your symptoms and how to correct the problem. The therapist will need to look at the parts of the body that are causing difficulties and will touch and press the area and ask you to perform certain movements.
Once the physio understands your problems thoroughly, he or she will begin treatment.
Cost of treatment:
Assessments are charged at £35 and treatments at £30. You can pay by cash or cheque. We are recognised by all health insurance companies including BUPA.
There will be a charge for non-attendance or less than 24 hours’ notice of cancellation.
Treatment schedule: designed to suit you
Appointments with individual therapists can be made to suit your schedule. Typically, an assessment would take 45 minutes to 1 hour and treatment sessions last 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the condition you are being treated for. Please leave enough time to prepare for the session.
