All therapists are chartered physiotherapists and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). This means that the physiotherapist has gained a degree in physiotherapy by completing theoretical, practical and clinical training. It also means they adhere to a code of conduct and are safe to practice physiotherapy.
Treatments can include the following:
- Mobilisation and manipulation of the joints and tissues
- Exercise therapy to mobilise and strengthen weakened or inactive muscles
- Electrical treatments (electrotherapy) including ultrasound and interferential therapy
- Trigger point acupuncture for pain conditions
- Advice on return to exercise and resumption of sporting activities
- Advice on pacing activities and ergonomic strategies for upper limb disorders
Measures to prevent recurrence often include reviewing or revising training programmes in the case of sports injuries and looking at work related ergonomic factors such as the patients posture and general work area.
No, chartered physiotherapists are trained to assess and treat multiple complaints and musculoskeletal conditions. If we think that we would benefit from more information or feel further investigations are required we would request that you contact your GP.
We aim to be as flexible as possible and endeavour to see you as soon as possible within the working hours of the clinic. If there is a difficulty due to the times available we also provide home visits.
Initial assessments and follow-up treatments are priced at £30.00.
Each session will last approximately 30 minutes.
Some treatment can be uncomfortable but at no stage should you be unable to tolerate the level of discomfort. Your physiotherapist will give you clear guidelines on what to expect during and after treatment and what is a normal reaction.
This depends on factors such as how long the problem has been present, the severity of the condition and also the requirements of the patient. For example, a person wishing to get back to training for a specific sport or event will typically require a longer course of treatment than a sedentary office-worker.
Yes, we are happy to provide treatment whilst you await your NHS appointment and pass on information regarding treatment when your appointment comes through.
To obtain an accurate diagnosis and to treat the problem appropriately we are usually required to see the affected areas. We recommend a loose and comfortable fitting top for upper limb, shoulder, neck and back problems and shorts for any problems presented in your lower back and legs. It is advisable to bring trainers should they be required for rehabilitation.
You are more than welcome to bring a friend or family member with you to your appointment and they can sit in on the consultation and treatment with you if you wish.
If you are unable to attend your appointment then please inform us as soon as possible. Failure to attend without prior notice or cancellation less than 12 hours in advance may result in you still being charged for the treatment.
