Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury or disease by correcting and maximising the body's own natural healing mechanisms. Physiotherapists aim to provide accurate assessment and diagnosis of spinal conditions, joint problems and soft tissue / sports injuries.

Chartered Physiotherapists take a three year, full time university degree and receive extensive training in anatomy, physiology and pathology; therefore they have an excellent understanding of how the body works and what happens when things go wrong.

Physiotherapy can treat a vast array of conditions and problems which include:

  • Sports Injuries acute or chronic
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Headaches
  • Post fracture rehabilitation
  • Post surgery rehabilitation
  • Chronic pain

Your initial appointment will last for an hour where you will undergo a thorough assessment to diagnosis the problem. We will then endeavour to discuss this diagnosis with you and the possible treatment options. At this point we will also try to give some form of prognosis and number of treatments we expect you will need before commencing treatment on your consent.

If at that time we do not feel that physiotherapy is appropriate we will discuss this with you and hopefully identify where would be most appropriate for you to go. If this is the case no charge will be incurred for the assessment.

From then on follow up treatments will last 30 minutes where a mini assessment will be carried out each time before continuing treatment.

Initial Assessment £45 for up to 60 minutes / £35 follow up 30minutes.
