If you can’t see the answer to your question on this page, give us a call, we're always happy to answer your queries about physiotherapy and treatments available.
That’s easy, if you're not sure, then just give us a call.This allows us to determine whether or not you would benefit from seeing us. Following our conversation, if it is decided that physiotherapy would work for you, we can arrange an appointment for you straight away. If physiotherapy is not for you, we will aim to point you in the right direction so your problem can be investigated and resolved as soon as possible.
Treatments will vary from person to person as our sessions are tailored to suit your individual needs. Your first session will include a thorough assessment. After successful diagnosis and explanation of the problem, we will discuss a treatment plan with you to ensure successful treatment of the injury or pain in question. Physiotherapy usually includes manual therapy (“hands on” treatment) and possibly ultrasound if required. Your therapist will design a specific exercise programme for you and provide important advice to help resolve your symptoms, increase function and cure the cause.
During your initial consultation, we will discuss a treatment plan with you. Further sessions, if required, may involve joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, ultrasound, postural correction, exercises for you to complete at home or the gym as well as preventative advice and self-management techniques.
If your condition is not improving after 2 weeks we will refer you to your G.P. for further investigations such as X-Ray or blood tests or to a specialist consultant for an MRI scan. We have close connections with some of the best orthopaedic and spinal surgeons in the area. For more information, please contact us directly.
Wear what makes you feel comfortable. If you're not sure, just give us a call before your appointment. If we need to treat hips or knees then shorts are advisable, however, if we need to treat your neck, back or shoulders it would be good if you could wear a top that allows access to those areas if necessary.
This varies between patients. Typically sessions last for 30 minutes, however, if required, longer sessions can be arranged.
We will always aim to make your treatment as comfortable as possible, however, under certain circumstances, more intense pressure and treatment techniques may be required. You will be forewarned and at any time can opt to cease treatment if it is too painful. If you have any queries regarding treatment techniques, please give us a call.
