FAQs


How long does a treatment take?

Treatments last approx. 45 minutes.

Will I be given exercises?

Yes. We will always give advice on the management of conditions and appropriate exercises to do in between treatments to optimise the recovery process. Tailor made exercise sheets are also given for you to take home.

Do I need a GP referral?

No GP referrals are necessary but if you have one, bring us a copy of the referral letter and any X-Ray, MRI’s that you have.

I have Private Medical Insurance – am I covered with you?

Of course. We are recognised by all the major insurance companies. Just check your own policy for its terms and conditions.

What about payment?

Unless there is a prior arrangement, payment must be made after each consultation. Receipts are given after each treatment session for tax or health insurance companies. 

Do you know how many treatments I will need?

Whilst each patient is an individual, following your first appointment the Physical Therapist will discuss the anticipated number of treatments. You will be reassessed on each visit.

Will I be expected to do anything in between treatments?

Yes. But we cannot force you! We will always give advice on the management of conditions and appropriate exercises to do in between treatments to optimize the recovery process. Tailor made exercise sheets are available for you to take home.
