What is a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are university trained and are experts in injury diagnosis, injury treatment, exercise prescription, injury prevention, rehabilitation and many other areas of sport, health and fitness.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring your scan/MRI reports, and list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
What should I wear to my appointment?
If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine you will be asked to take off some clothing, so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
How do I make an appointment?
You can get in touch by phone (0246 28 8181) or use the form under the contact page. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking page, which is the method we prefer.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, physiotherapists can assess and treat without referral by a doctor. However some health insurers require a doctors referral before they will authorise cover of fees, some only require a phone call.
