What is a physiotherapist?
We as Physiotherapists Specialists are recognised within the healthcare medical profession and registered with the HCPC.
From a thorough assessment we are able to establish a diagnosis which then enables us to use a multi-model "hands-on" approach that can include treatments such as soft tissue massage, spinal manipulations, acupuncture and joint mobilisations.
A evidence -based rehabilitation plan is also designed for you, to further support your full recovery.
What should I bring?
Where possible, previous medical or surgical history letters/ reports are also valuable for us to review in our physiotherapy assessment session.
Do I need referral by a GP?
No, physiotherapists can assess and treat without referral by a GP / doctor.
However, most private health insurers do require to pre-authorise your physiotherapy sessions.
You can do this via phone call to your insurer.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments you require will vary depending on your injury and with a specific diagnosis.
An thorough assessment will be completed by the physiotherapist and will discuss the recommended treatment plan.
What should I wear?
We recommend you prepare physically by wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that will allow us to easily see the skin, joints and muscles around your injury.
