Opening hours: Mon-Fri 8.00am-7.00pm
What to expect
If you've never seen a physiotherapist before, you may be unsure what to expect. The main thing you need to know is that there’s no need to worry. We're professional, but we’re friendly and human too and we'll always do our best to answer any concerns you may have.
At your first session, we'll take a medical history from you and ask about medication and about any other health issues. We’re not being nosey – it’s important that we understand your health and are fully informed before we consider any treatment.
Most of our appointments last about 30 minutes. You may have to undress partially depending upon the condition, so think about what to wear. For example, women may find separates more convenient than a dress. Our treatment rooms are private but we do have male and female staff so, if you’d prefer to be seen by someone of your own sex, please let us know. If you would like a chaperone at any time, just tell us and we'll sort that.
How many sessions will I need?
The short answer to that is 'it depends' on the nature of your problem, but we'll advise you about what we think is required.
Unlike some providers, we always try to make sure that you see the same member of our team throughout your treatment which allows us to accurately monitor your progress and recovery.
Do I need to be referred by my GP?
No. Just call us to make an appointment. Although if you are seeing your GP about the problem, please tell us so that we can make appropriate decisions about your treatment.
Will my treatment be covered by my health insurance?
That depends upon your insurance provider, but we are on the panel of all the major suppliers of health cover. Just ask, and we'll let you know.
We understand that it's not always possible or practical for our patients to get to us and can offer home visits in certain cases.
When can I get an appointment?
We’re a small team and we’re busy, but we always try to be flexible and accommodate requests for appointments at times convenient to you.
If you have to cancel, please let us know just as soon as you can, and a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
