What if I am not sure physiotherapy can help me?

                           Please feel free to telephone or email for advice without obligation on the suitability of your
                           problem for physiotherapy treatment.   

What should I wear?

                           It is necessary to assess movement, so loose fitting  clothing may be recommended (tight fitting                             jeans can be restrictive), therefore loose and stretchy clothing is ideal.  Shorts are                             recommended for lower limb problems and vest tops are suitable for upper limb problems.                             However, you may be required to partially undress, especially at the initial examination,                             depending on which part of the body is being treated.  It is preferable that jewelry, perfume                             and body lotion is not worn and that long hair is tied back.  

                            Feel free to bring a change of clothes to change into before your allocated treatment.                    

Do I have to be referred by a consultant or GP?

                           No, simply feel free to contact for a conversation or schedule your initial consultation.

Can I bring a friend or relative with me?

                           You are welcome to have somebody with you during your consultation and  / or treatment.

What should I expect from my first visit?

                           Your initial consultation is typically a 45 minute consultation involving both assessment                             and treatment.

                          · Your medical history is taken and documented.

                          · A physical examination of the area involved is conducted.

                          · Following your assessment an explanation of your problem will be provided.

                          · Your treatment options and a treatment plan will then be discussed with you. 

                          · Your treatment will then commence on your  follow-up appointment(s).
