what to expect

Initial Assessment and Case History

Your physiotherapist will take you through a full assessment, discussing your current and previous medical history to make sure that your treatment course is planned appropriately and management is efficient and effective.  

Physical Assessment and Examination

Targeted towards your individual needs and specific injury, you will be guided through a range of specific tests to help analyse range of movement, strength and stability, to identify the cause of your symptoms and the requirements of your treatment.  You may be advised to seek external diagnostic testing via your GP or Consultant, such as MRI, X-ray or blood tests to aid diagnosis.  

Diagnosis and Treatment or Rehab Plan

Your physiotherapist will provide you with a working diagnosis and understanding of your symptoms or injury. You will be guided with a management plan for your treatment and rehabilitation which may include a specific exercise prescription tailored to you. Advice regarding lifestyle modification and nutrition may also be given.

Follow-Up Treatment or Rehabilitation

Depending on the treatment and, or rehabilitation plan being prescribed, follow-up sessions may be required to complete the course of treatement and to help maintain movement, fitness and well-being. 

treatment techniques that we use

Joint mobilisation – specific manual techniques applied to the joints to improve mobility, reduce stiffness and reduce pain.

Myofascial release and soft tissue techniques – focused on relieving muscle spasm, improving circulation and easing range of motion.

Exercise – specifically tailored patient exercise programmes are supported with our exercise software. Exercise progression is closely monitored to ensure that you are safely building strength and improving mobility. 

Electrotherapy – these modalities can be used as an effective adjunct to the manual therapy techniques. We may also recommend the use of TENS as part of a patient selfcare.

K-Tape – referred to in a number of ways, this multi-coloured tape has no magic medicine within it but, when applied correctly, it can effectively promote circulation, reduce inflammation and bruising, activate muscle and support dysfunctional joints.

Most major health companies specify the treatment tariff and methods of payment. Please check with your medical insurance and provide the appropriate authorisation prior to attending for treatment. Some insurance companies require the patient to settle the account and claim back but others have arrangements for the practice to invoice directly. Our Healthcare partners, including the NHS, have contracts in place and set their tariffs accordingly.
