Frequently asked questions.

Do you do home visits?2024-04-10T13:38:34+00:00

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer home visits at the moment.

What if I struggle with stairs?2024-04-10T13:38:39+00:00

Whilst it is not ideal that we are on the first floor, we are always able to help patients negotiate our 2 very short flights of stairs (7 steps per flight). There is a chair at the bottom and a landing area halfway up. We do find however that some patients who think they are unable to manage the stairs, often do really well with the help of an experienced physiotherapist.

Can you refer me for an MRI/Injection/X-Ray?2024-04-10T13:38:43+00:00

Yes, we can refer you on for imaging to a local centre or back to your GP, and to our own Injection clinic.

What can I expect from an initial consultation?2024-04-10T13:38:48+00:00

At the initial consultation appointment, a full assessment of the problem will be carried out and you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns with your Physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist will advise you on the best course of action for your particular injury/ailment and will provide a programme of exercises which you can continue with at home. They will also carry out some hands-on treatment and/or manipulation, where appropriate.

The initial consultation appointment will last between 45 mins-1 hour. Follow-up consultations are approx. 30 mins. The number of sessions you will require will be dependent on the type of injury and speed of recovery.

What if I need to can/change my appt?2024-04-10T13:39:26+00:00

We are a busy clinic and appointments are in high demand so if you need to change or cancel your appointment, we ask that you provide as much notice as possible. Cancellations received with less than 24 hour’s notice, or failure to turn up for your appointment, will be subject to a £25 cancellation charge.

Can I pay by insurance?2024-04-10T13:39:32+00:00

Do you have a specialist in knees/necks/shoulders etc?2024-04-10T13:39:38+00:00

All of our physios are well trained and experienced with all parts of the body but some do have a preference as to which areas they prefer so we will try to fit you in with the most suitable physio where possible.
