F.A.Q's

Can Physiotherapy help?

Physiotherapists treat a wide variety of conditions. In our Clinic we specialise in injuries or conditions affecting the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves. This includes spinal problems, sports injuries, sprains, strains and trapped nerves.

Do I need a referral from my GP?

No, you do not need a referral from a GP or consultant. We normally send a letter to your GP informing them of your condition, unless you request otherwise.

Will my private medical insurance cover my treatment?

We are recognised by all major insurance companies but you must contact your insurer to find out about the particular details of your personal policy.

How long are the treatment sessions?

Your first appointment lasts 45 minutes. This will include a history taking, a thorough physical examination of the problem area and treatment. There is also time for you to ask questions.

How many treatments will I need?

Everyone's condition differs and the severity and duration of your symptoms will depend on how many treatments you require and how you respond once treatment has started. This will be discussed with you at your first appointment. In some cases only one or two treatments are required as we provide a home exercise regime and strongly encourage self management.

What treatments are commonly used?

Depending on what your condition requires we use a variety of manual therapies, electrotherapy, acupuncture and exercise/stretches.

How quickly will I be seen?

Usually within 48 hours but if you have an urgent problem we will do our utmost to fit you in that day.

How do I pay?

We accept cash or cheques. Unfortunately we are unable to accept credit or debit cards at the moment.

What do I wear?

Please feel free to bring a pair of shorts to change into if it is a back or leg problem but this is not essential

I still have unanswered questions. Contact us
