Frequently asked questions

I haven't seen my GP or a consultant can I still come for an appointment?  

ABSOLUTELY! In many cases it is better to come straight to us then we can get you on the path to full fitness quicker

I have private medical insurance can you treat me?

YES we can indeed, we are registered with all major private healthcare insurers just let us know when you book. You need to contact your insurer first to gain a authorisation number and find your policy number.  Let us know these numbers on the phone or when choosing the private medical insurance option through online booking write the policy number and authorisation number in the notes.

I have never been to a physio before, what should I wear?

You should wear clothes you are comfortable exercising in as we may want to utilise the rehabilitation gym. In the treatment room you should wear clothing that means we can accurately assess the area of the body we are treating, for example wearing shorts for a lower limb injury or a top with straps for a shoulder injury.

I have a very busy schedule how long will my session be?

Your first session will be 60 minutes* and then most follow up sessions will be 30 minutes unless otherwise suggested.

*all sessions covered by private medical insurance are 30 minutes including the initial appointment 

I would like to book an appointment for my son or daughter who is under 18 is this possible?

Definitely, however under 18's must always have an adult present for their first appointment

Will you be able to tell me how many appointments I might need?

Sure, we do our best to give you an idea of how many sessions and how often you will need to come to see us. This may change as your injury progresses but we have flexible payment plans. You can pay for sessions as you go or make it cheaper and buy all you sessions upfront and best thing is, they don't expire! Even if we get you better before you have had all your pre bought sessions you can use them at a later date for further physiotherapy or any of our other services like sports massage.
