Q: What should I wear?
A: Dependent on the area of your body that you need assessing either a vest top for females and for both males and females shorts or loose fitting trousers.
Q: What is a Chartered Physiotherapist?
A: As a Chartered Physiotherapist I have a BSc HONS in Physiotherapy which allows me to work independently to assess and treat patients. I have the skills to recognise conditions that require other medical opinions e.g referring on to an orthopaedic or neurological consultant.
As a Chartered Physiotherapist I have to maintain my skills with regular training and retain my membership to the HCPC board.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: Our assessments cost just £39 and our followups cost £37.
Q: Do you get treatment on your first appointment?
A: Assessment is usually 45 mins and will involve a full history taking then a full objective examination.
Following this I can give a diagnosis and a better idea of types of treatment and how many sessions will be needed.
Your assessment usually allow time for treatment to occur immediately ( only restricted if complex long histories are given).
Q: Will it hurt?
A: The phrase “no pain, no gain” is a common phrase used in any hands on therapy. As a skilled physiotherapist I can assess the level of pain I can allow – some therapy can be painful but it is always to used to relieve pain in the long term.
Q: How long does each session last?
A: Assessment is 45 mins – Treatment sessions are 30 mins
Q: How many sessions will I need?
A: Only after an assessment will I be able to give a more specific idea of numbers of sessions you would require. It depends on the degree and severity of the injury and how long ago the injury occured.
